the team provides meals at the rink and on the road, so that is easy enough to eat healthy, it is at home that must be a bigger challenge... players don't know how to cook and they are busy with other commitments, so I understand why they don't cook at home on their own a lot... getting pre-made meals for at home that only need to be heated up would cost no more than $40,000/year, and that is likely on the high side now that i think about it... you could probably get most of them handled for around $20,000 or so actually

its crazy that all the players don't do this.... it's even crazier that the oilers don't have an "on-staff" chef that takes care of all this for the players... maybe the oilers DO have such a person, but i've never heard about it
Calling Gordon Ramsay, I repeat, calling Gordon Ramsay!
