The Winter Olympics Diet – What’s on the menu for the top athletes?

For those of you following the Winter Olympics in Sochi, it is certainly turning into one of the best Winter Olympics ever and has kicked off the 2014 year of sport in spectacular fashion.  The Winter Olympics has thrown up many magical moments down the years, from Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards and the Jamaican bobsleigh team to the 'Miracle on Ice' from the USA and off course the wonderful Bolero from Torvil and Dean in Sarajevo in 1988.With the winter Olympics ending this Sunday, we decided to take a look at what some of these superstar athletes eat to fuel their bodies in the freezing temperatures.  

3 Tips to preparing and recovering from a training session

We recently looked at 4 benefits to eating seeds when training and working out but what you eat is just part of the preparation and recovery process that we all go through when training.  For athletes and those of us looking to get fit, our diet is one of the most important parts of the whole training process.  It isn’t alone though and there are a number of things that you need to consider when getting your body ready for a workout, a tough training session, a match or even a long distance run or cycle.

4 Benefits of eating seeds when training and working out

Whether you’re a full time athlete or simply enjoy (or even don’t enjoy) working out and training on a regular basis, be sure to add some seeds to your routine in 2014.  Seeds are continuing to grow in popularity with chia seeds and flax seed becoming particularly popular among athletes.  Seeds (and nuts) can be a great alternative to your normal snack this year, so rather than reaching for a packet of crisps or bar of chocolate to get a quick energy boost, add some seeds to a natural yoghurt and enjoys the great benefits of seeds to your body.  

Why protein is good for you when exercising

Many of us do not get enough physical activity on a weekly basis.  Whether it’s due to the darker nights and colder weather, your job or looking after the kids, it’s often easier to find excuses not to train than it is to find reasons to get started. Linwoods shelled hemp seeds are a great source of protein & also provide your body with iron and magnesium which also helps to aid your recovery from exercising.

Vitamin D is an important nutrient for your body and provides many benefits to helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle.  The main source of vitamin D to the human body is natural sunlight and in the UK, this is something we see less and less off over the Winter months.  One way of ensuring your body gets the right levels of vitamin D not only during the Winter months but also throughout the year is by eating food that provides it.
