Editor's Note: This post originally appeared on the blog of Fitness.gov. From my early morning workouts, to the final buzzer on game day, my body stays fueled by the nutritious foods I eat throughout the day. Making healthy choices is essential for me to function at the highest level, whether I’m on the road for a game or at home with my family. March is National Nutrition Month and is a great reminder for us all to incorporate healthy eating into our daily lives. Whether you are an NBA player, a student on the go, or busy parent rushing between work and home, you can eat healthy and still enjoy the foods you love.
