Health Tip: Pack a Bike-Friendly Snack
(HealthDay News) -- Planning a long-distance bike ride? You should pack a nutritious snack to help sustain your energy as you pedal.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mentions these bike-friendly snacks that will give your muscles the nutrients they need:
Bananas, which are a good source of potassium and carbohydrates.
Peanut butter and jelly (or honey) sandwich on a tortilla. Swap peanut butter for almond butter or sunflower butter if you have a peanut allergy.
Trail mix packed with nuts and dried fruits, such as raisins, apricots and prunes. Opt for salted nuts if you tend to sweat excessively.
An energy bar packed with nuts, dried fruits and whole grains.
Don't forget bottled water or a sports drink.
