BE­FORE

Best Health - - FAST FOOD -

THIS DISH IS A PER­FECT PRE-GAME LUNCH OR din­ner and is best eaten 3 to 4 hours pre-work­out. It has all of the es­sen­tial macronu­tri­ents, plus ni­trates in the veg­eta­bles. “Some good re­search shows that if you have ni­trate-rich arugula be­fore you do an ac­tiv­ity, you will per­form bet­ter be­cause it in­creases your mus­cle’s abil­ity to use oxy­gen,” Neren­berg ex­plains. You can also get those ni­trates in closer to your ex­er­cise (say 15 min­utes out) by juic­ing beets and car­rots, she sug­gests, since juice is eas­ier to digest in a short time.
