Tournament Survival Tips as seen on Rogers Daytime Ottawa

Tournament Survival Tips: Save Money and Stay Fuelled

If you have children in sports, you know first hand how costly ‘away’ tournaments can be.

 Hotels, gas and eating three meals a day (plus snacks) ‘on the road’ can add up quick for the average family of four.

One of the easiest ways to save money and fuel your growing athletes is by: packing a weekends worth of nutritious snacks and meals.  As the mom of two active teenage boys, I come by this topic honestly and passionately.  My pack-and-go recipes will save you hundreds of dollars over basketball/soccer/lacrosse/dance/hockey season, and will nourish yourself and your family while on the road.  All recipes use pantry staple items and take very little time to prep. Hint, Hint…get those teens in the kitchen, prepping and packing meals/snacks.

Click on each pink title to learn more about the featured product.

Homemade Sports Drink – sweetened with Billy Bee Honey billy_bee_logo

In a pinch, many of us reach for commercial sports drinks.  Most sports drinks are loaded with artificial colours, processed sugars and poor taste.  With a few pantry staple ingredients, you can prepare your own hydrating sports drink for pennies per serving.

*As an avid runner myself, I often double or triple the recipe in the summer months (*and keep refrigerated).  This way, we have plenty on hand for a post run sip, when my kids are heading to soccer, basketball or bike park, or when my husband is running out the door to baseball.

1 bag herbal tea *my kids prefer peach, or berry flavour *I prefer ginger

¼ (60 mL) orange juice

2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 tbsp (30 mL) Billy Bee Liquid Honey

¼ tsp (1 mL) quality sea salt

Boil water.  Remove from heat and steep tea bag for at least 30 minutes. Chill. When ready to prepare, remove tea bag and stir in juices, maple syrup and salt to cooled tea.  Shake (*if placing in a mason jar) or stir well to combine. Consume within two days of preparing.  Makes about 4 cups (1 L)

Coconut Chocolate Energy Truffles Made with Billy Bee Honey

Satisfy your sweet tooth with these good-for-you and easy to prepare bites. Perfect for a post workout nibble, or 3 p.m. at-your-desk snack.

1 cup (250 mL) each; large flake sweetened coconut, peanuts and dark chocolate chips (*at least 70% chocolate)

1/2 cup (125 mL) large flake rolled oats (*or quinoa flakes)

3 tbsp (45 mL) each; chia seeds and hemp seeds

1/2 cup (125 mL) Billy Bee Liquid Honey

2 tsp (10 mL) pure vanilla extract

1/4 tsp (1 mL) pure coconut extract

*extra shredded coconut

Place coconut, nuts, chocolate and oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until mixture comes together and starts to form a ball. Roll mixture evenly into balls – just a bit smaller than a golf ball (should yield approx 16 “truffles”). Roll each truffle in shredded coconut to coat. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
