How will these meal plans help me to eat better?

When you do one or more sports, there isn’t always time to make the best food choices or cook healthy meals that suit the whole family.

No matter which sport you prefer — running, biking, swimming, hiking, hockey, etc. (or being a couch potato!) — these meal plans will help you to keep your energy levels up before, during, and after your activities without any hassle.

You’ll have everything you need to calculate your family’s needs according to their individual sports. With these tools, you can prepare easy, fast, and tasty sports meals for the whole family or a single family member.

Life:
MADE EASY

A simple tool to calculate your needs, compose your menu and grocery list.

Pleasure :
GUARANTEED

Thanks to our delicious and varied recipes you will eat better without sacrificing flavour.

Performance :
IMPROVED

Constant energy before, during and after your sporting activities to achieve your goals.

In several studies, nutrient timing (in other words timing when you eat) can directly impact your body’s response to exercise. Your body can be leaner (1), more energized (2), and more performing (3) when the right proportions of food are eaten at the right time

ACTIVE FAMILY meal plans

Testimonial of an Ultramarathoner and Active Father

As an ultramarathon runner myself, I do know how optimal nutrition can make a difference in an extreme endurance event. As a dad of active girls, I understand the need to offer and provide my children sensible, healthy, balanced choices that will give them all the energy they need for their sporting activities. The Sport and Active Family Meal Plan is the perfect guide to help me stay on course, to keep me in check on occasion, and also to push me a little further in pursuit of my objectives.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you calculate the portions?

Your level of physical activity and your body composition define your energy needs. By entering these 2 data points into the calculator for each member of the family, you will get the number of servings required by each of you for the different categories of recipes. In general, this calculation is done only once at the beginning of the training season, or when there are changes in activity.

How do I know what to eat before, during, and after my sports activities?

All recipes in the Sport meal plan are sorted according to the time of consumption. You just have to choose them according to your training plan. To guide you, you can follow the following basic principles:

Before Activity

  • 3 to 4 hours: Full meal
    and/or*
  • 1 to 2 hours: Energy rich snack

During Actity

  • Water
    and/or*
  • Snack for quick energy

After Activity

  • Full meal
    and/or*
  • Muscle builder + Energy-rich snack + water

Do these meal plans work for all levels of sport?

These menus are suitable for children, teenagers and adults weighing between 40 and 120kg and practicing one or more sports activities from level 1 (low intensity) to level 3 (training of at least 1 hour per day with at least 25% of the time at intense level).

Whatever the sport, the basic rules are similar and you will benefit from these meal plans. If you want to go further, you will need an individual follow-up by a sports nutritionist, as offered with our VIP Dietitian package.

Can I trust the Sports Meal Plans?

Our menus reflect sports nutrition guidelines for high performance athletes, tailored for recreational athletes. Key sources include:

  • American College of Sports Medicine
  • Dietitians of Canada
  • Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

Why is it important to eat the right quantity of the right macronutrients at the right time?

In several studies, nutrient timing (in other words timing when you eat) can directly impact your body’s response to exercise. Your body can be leaner (1), more energized (2), and more performing (3) when the right proportions of food are eaten at the right time.
