We are in spring already where daylight appears earlier, and the days get longer. While the mornings are still chilly, the afternoons tend to be sunny and warm. This also means that early season races are around the corner. Unfortunately, some of you greet allergies when training outside.
To support your increasing levels of activity as well as to reduce inflammation and seasonal allergies, include dishes that feature fresh young spring produce, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats like olive oil, nuts, and avocado. That will help you to get fitter and leaner, stay healthy, and recover well.
