Breakfast of champs: stuffed avocado with salmon, egg, dill and wholegrain soldiers
On a day off they are usually not many activities planned and this day is mainly intended to recuperate from previous trainings, so that you can start fresh the next couple of days. Many sportsmen and women don’t make much distinction in their dietary pattern for training days and off days. An off day, however, is characterized by less physical activity, and as a result the intake of carbohydrates should be lowered (3 to 5g/kg body weight). Furthermore, it is important to give your body the necessary building blocks on a day of rest so that it can properly recover. These building blocks consist of protein, but also healthy fats such as nuts, avocado, fatty fish, walnut oil, linseed oil, rapeseed oil, … A rest day is the perfect opportunity to give some extra attention to the intake of vitamins and minerals through veggies and fruit.
