Here's some of our favorite healthy snack ideas to help fuel your golf game.

Snacks out on the golf course are a great way to re-fuel and provide the energy to keep going. It’s best to have a snack containing about 25-30 grams of carbohydrates every 45-60 minutes. Pair these carbohydrate snacks with protein and/or fats for longer, more sustainable energy. And always remember to hydrate.

Here, some of our favorite healthy snack ideas to help you fuel your golf game:
• One medium-sized, fresh fruit – like an apple – with 2 tablespoons almonds (12 nuts), walnuts (7 halves), or peanuts (20 nuts) or 1 tablespoon natural nut butter
• 1 tablespoon natural nut butter (almond, cashew, or peanut) with 1 ounce whole grain crackers
• 1/3 cup trail mix with a combination of nuts, dried fruit, and/or whole grains
• 1 mozzarella string cheese stick or 1 ounce low-fat cheese (about 1-inch square) with one medium fresh fruit or 1 ounce whole-grain crackers
• 1/4 cup nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and cashews
• One or two mini fig bars and a cheese stick
• Low-fat cheese stick with turkey jerky
• One applesauce squeeze pouch
• Half an energy bar, that contains at least 5 grams protein per serving
Almond Butter Delight and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread
• 1/2 cup dry-roasted edamame or dry-roasted chickpeas
• 6 fluid ounces of sports drink that contains carbohydrates
