Dance Rehearsal Snacks
Snacks seem like the one thing we cannot leave the house without. We need to carry some with us at all times, whether we need it for class, rehearsals, competitions or anything else. The tough part is knowing what to carry in our bags. What are the best snacks to take along? We are ready to give you some tips and recipes that will keep you fueled up during rehearsals.
The Best Snacks for Dancers
There are times throughout the day when we need to nibble on something that kicks in and brings energy levels back up. If you relate with this at all, you can start taking notes now because we have some pointers that will help you keep yourself alert and energized all through the day.
The trick to energy-boosting snacks
When we think about snacks, most of the time, we think of words like “tasty,” “quick,” and “easy,” and yes, it should be all of those things. However, if there’s something true about snacks, it’s that they need to combine a series of nutrients that can keep you going faster, better, harder, and stronger for longer, especially when your body is preparing to crash from all the strain we put it through during rehearsal, or even running errands, and work. “Any time that you go longer than four to five hours without eating, the body’s energy levels can crash significantly,” says Lisa Moskovitz, R.D. “Having a nutrient-rich snack that’s low in sugar and saturated fat will ensure your body has the fuel to keep going so you can easily complete all of your daily tasks.”
Today’s a good day. Not only are we telling you all about how to put together great snacks but we’re also giving you a list of snacks to tickle your creativity, and hopefully, you’ll start creating your own favorite nibbles after this.
