Carrots: The perfect pre-game vegetable?
 
Serious fellas


Carrots are the near-perfect pre-game Hockey vegetable. Beta carotene for vision, Vitamin E for muscles, and some B vitamins, magensium and such for energy. Time for another pre-meal appetizer.:yo:

I prefer speedballs.

Aren't carrots one of the only veggies that provide more nutrients after being cooked ?

A pile of brown sugar and butter cooked in a saucepan.. Mmmm. If you haven't tried it, do it... ..do it...

Animal crackers.

This should be turned into a "what do you eat before every game?" thread. :P

I'm not a big fan of vegetables unfortunately. I always do eat a banana before every game though.

how do you get the most from Carrots? *Snicker*Snicker*
Way to low of a fruit to pick in public.

My plan often goes like this- large meal 5 hours before game, small fruit/veggy snack 2-3 hours before game. It's the best system I've ever found...

What does one snowman say to another?

I don't think energy when I think magnesium...I actually take mag supplements to keep my anxiety under control. It's a pretty sugary vegetable too...

But yeah, that falls under "what do you eat before games", and for me, it's a little bit of protein a few hours beforehand (PG meals this weekend were chicken nuggets on Sat and a 4 oz steak on Sun). My body and carbs don't get along well at all, they cause me to crash and burn and blow up like a balloon.

I'm like that too. I'll eat raw carrots like candy but when cooked I just don't touch.

same here. I HATE cooked carrots but love them raw. Bleh.

I just eat normally before games. I might go a little carb heavy for lunch, but otherwise I don't sweat it too much.

Recently I've been on a vegan diet. It's not that I don't want to eat meat... it's that for some reason, the sight of meat and dairy products make me nauseous (I think my flu is trying to starve me to death).

Does anybody know of a good way to maintain an athlete's diet while going vegan? I did a Google search and noticed that Laraque recently went vegan, but I haven't seen any other instances.

If i know i am playing, i usually have pasta with a bit of chicken or those little breakfast sausages.


I always have a banana and a handful of walnuts/peanuts/pistacchios (spl?) in the dressing room before a game too.
