10. Bananas

Bananas are a popular sports food as they are easy to transport, don’t need refrigeration and are a good source of carbohydrates.

They are also one of the more filling fruits, making them a great snack in between meals. Bananas are very high in potassium, one of the electrolytes that can be lost through sweat. Potassium is very important for heart and kidney health as well as bone density.
Diet tip: Squeeze lemon juice over bananas and freeze for a cool snack on a hot day.
