Top 30 Foods for Swimmers

Jan 17, 2007 |

Today, my brother-in-law Dan sent me a list published on USA swimming, entitled Top 30 Foods for Swimmers. As a vegan, I can eat most of them, but not all.

It listed the following items: blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, oranges, mango, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, sweet potatoes avocado, spinach, mixed greens, potatoes, bananas, almonds, cranberries, oatmeal, granola, olive oil, black beans, yogurt, milk, orange juice, whole grain bread, whole grain pasta, eggs, beef, salmon, shrimp, and chicken.

The 30 foods are all a good source of at least one of the featured nutrients on the list, which included carbohydrates, proteins, fiber, and antioxidants.

  1. Hi, thanks for sharing that. I probably don’t eat enough berries as they are very rare here in the tropics. Will try to make it up with mangoes and bananas. :)
