The Athletes’ Kitchen at TOSH
At TOSH, we feel that it is important to extend nutrition beyond lectures and recommendations. Food – its look, feel, texture, and taste – plays an integral role in dietary choices.
During kitchen-based workshops, participants have the opportunity to put the recommendations into practice by tasting examples of healthy snacks, pre-training meals, or simple-to-prepare nutrient-dense lunches and dinners.
Nutrition workshops can be tailored to meet the needs of specific athletes/groups. Coaches, parents, or individuals are encouraged to set up private clinics to address the needs of specific groups.
Contact Kary to schedule a private clinic by calling (801) 314-4038.
