Ever wonder how college athletes balance it all? Between eating well, staying fit and having a social life, college athletes have much more on their plates than most college students. One thing all college athletes have in common is their focus on putting the right food in their bodies. Peanuts are a great snack for college athletes and especially for soccer players because they provide the fat necessary to give sustained energy when doing intense exercise like running up and down a field.
National Peanut Board and The18 teamed up with two D1 college soccer players to get the scoop on what a week in the life of a college athlete is like and how peanuts are the ultimate teammate. Follow along college sophomore forward Riley Lynch as he takes us through a busy week featuring travel, eating healthy, training, schoolwork and much more in episode two of our Day in the Life of a College Athlete series sponsored by National Peanut Board!
