You may not realize it yet but what you eat, does have an impact on your performance on the golf course.  In comparison to many other sports, when you play a round of golf, you are participating in physical activity for a long time.  Compare golf to sports such as football (soccer) or rugby, where the game is over within 80 or 90 minutes, whereas you can be out on the golf course for 5 hours.

Planning and eating well, can help you stay strong on the golf course, both physically and mentally.  During this course, we will be providing you with examples of what to eat at different times, on a day that you are going to play golf.  Of course, you do not have to follow these tips only on a day you are playing golf, they can also be used as part of well balanced diet.

We strongly advise all clients to avoid all wheat, dairy and sugar and the recipes included reflect that.

During the course of the next four weeks, we will work through a typical day of golf, with diet and recipes for each part of the day.  This week, we have included a recipe that you can use for breakfast.

Morning

The best time to eat in the morning, before playing golf, is 2 hours before your tee time.  This will enable you to store energy in your body that will last through the first holes of your round.  For breakfast, we recommend a Vegetable Omelet, the recipe for which you can find below.  It is also best to drink water, as this will keep you hydrated more effectively that tea or coffee.

Vegetable Omelet:

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 whole medium egg
  • ¼ c chopped broccoli
  • ¼ chopped small onion
  • 1 chopped small tomato
  • 2 chopped asparagus

Mix eggs into small bowl

Heat vegetables with a drop of coconut oil for a few minutes on a hot pan

Pour eggs over veggies and flip to make omelet.
