nut TIP OF THE WEEK:

Family Dinner:  Runners tend to skimp on fats, but they should welcome the good kinds, like omega-3s and monounsaturated fats–found in foods like salmon, tuna, avocados, nuts and olive oil. Those foods are important for the immune system, joint health, recovery and injury prevention. Even better for the high school runner: Good fats aid brain function. Try to get the family on board with serving guacamole, fish and nuts. If you’re eating 2,000 calories a day, then you’ll want about 400 to 500 calories, or about 44 to 55 grams, to be coming from fat.
