Fuel SEAFOOD: THE SMART CHOICE IN MAKING HEALTH CONSCIOUS DECISIONS Author: Tough Mudder with Wild Alaskan Company Sponsored by: Share on Facebook Share on Twitter We already know training is only one part of finding success on a Tough Mudder course. Whatever your fitness goals, training is key. But training is only half the equation. It’s easy to overlook nutrition too, but without a proper diet, you’re not going to maximize the effects of training. If you want strength, speed, and agility a healthy, nutrient-rich diet is key – and adding seafood into your everyday diet may be just the solution you were looking for. As a nutritional powerhouse, wild seafood such as salmon, halibut, cod and wild Alaska pollock are loaded with health benefits that will help you conquer not only obstacles on the course, but everyday challenges – keeping you fueled and living your best Mudder lifestyle year-round. We all already know seafood is incredibly savory and satisfying, however, we may not all know why it is a smart choice in making health-conscious decisions. Here’s 3 reasons, as a Mudder, you should add seafood into your diet right now. Hard Training Requires a Good Source of Protein – Protein plays a key role in training and recovery. It is a source of energy before a workout and helps repair and rebuild muscle tissue after a workout. High-quality lean protein, like wild seafood, is important for training and recovery. Fatty Acids Are Essential For Heart and Brain Function – Seafood is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are believed to lower the risk of stroke and developing an abnormal heartbeat. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids keep the body physically fit and the mind mentally sharp, both of which are needed to conquer on-course. Seafood is a Great Source of Vitamin D – Vitamin D is a crucial neurotransmitter known to influence our mood. It is key for building and maintaining healthy bone function and it helps you sleep better and wake up more refreshed. In short, seafood is a source of vitamins and minerals that will not only help with training and endurance, but also benefit overall health and wellness. While Tough Mudder emphasizes the nutritional benefits and importance of adding fish into your diet, we also understand buying, prepping, cooking, AND freezing seafood may not always be the easiest – so, we found a convenient and healthy solution; Wild Alaskan. With Wild Alaskan, a seafood membership program that delivers sustainable, wild fish straight to your door, Mudder’s can up their at-home cooking nutritional game.
