Health Tip: Pack a Bike-Friendly Snack
Bananas are a good choice

(HealthDay News) -- Planning a long-distance bike ride? You should pack a nutritious snack to help sustain your energy as you pedal.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mentions these bike-friendly snacks that will give your muscles the nutrients they need:

  • Bananas, which are a good source of potassium and carbohydrates.
  • Peanut butter and jelly (or honey) sandwich on a tortilla. Swap peanut butter for almond butter or sunflower butter if you have a peanut allergy.
  • Trail mix packed with nuts and dried fruits, such as raisins, apricots and prunes. Opt for salted nuts if you tend to sweat excessively.
  • An energy bar packed with nuts, dried fruits and whole grains.
  • Don't forget bottled water or a sports drink.
