Physical activities often require eating away from home. Whether you are traveling with a sports team, going straight from school or work to practice, or simply looking to catch a good workout while on vacation, make sure your body has the fuel it needs.

Keep energized by packing a snack. Choose foods with carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats. If packing food isn’t an option, find a restaurant that provides high-performance food options, containing high amounts of nutrients and protein. Also, don't forget to keep hydrated by drinking enough fluids. Get the nutrients and hydration you need for the activities ahead.
