Nutrition as important as sleep for athletes

 CADP welcomed 2008 Beijing Olympian and University of Minnesota Nutritionist, Rasa Troup, to the program on Thursday as she gave a seminar to a group of athletes. The attending athletes learned how to balance meals and eat healthy, as they understood their nutrition is different as hockey players when compared to other athletes and non-athletes. Troup emphasized how nutrition can be as important as sleep for hockey players, and when key nutrients aren't consumed, athletes can't play to their full potential. Each player left with a bag of healthy snacks, donated by Whole Foods.

A special thanks to the Mancheski family and Susannah Brokl for helping make this great opportunity possible.
