Building a Performance Plate

What is a Performance Plate?: 

"Quality hours in the gym and on the practice field or court are definitely important for improving performance, but your full athletic potential can be hindered if you’re not incorporating proper fueling strategies. Whether you eat your meals at the university dining facility or at home, each and every meal you consume during the day should be considered an essential part of your training regimen. Your daily “training table plates” or “performance plates” play a significant role in your energy levels, hydration status and recovery potential."
