The LSU Football players enjoyed a fun and delicious "Beat Bama" & Halloween themed meal last night at their Training Table dinner. The upcoming LSU vs. Alabama game prompted a special menu consisting of a variety of proteins including: "Elephant Ribs", "Elephant Trunk", "Elephant Ears", and "Elephant Legs." All of the vegetables and starches were Purple & Gold, and several LSU decorated desserts were available for a mid-week sweet treat.
We wish our Tigers the best of luck this weekend as they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide!
Check out the Training Table festivities below:

The 2012 LSU Football, Soccer, and Volleyball teams reported a few weeks before the start of the Fall Semester to prepare for their seasons ahead. For all teams, pre-season camp consisted of intense 2-a-day practices, team workouts, and meetings with: Academics, Compliance, Media, Athletic Training, and Nutrition.
The extreme physical demand of camp requires adequate fuel and hydration for all athletes. Both nutrition education and fueling strategies were implemented to keep the Tigers energized to endure long & hot practices and to ensure full-body recovery.
Here are some photos highlighting our FUELED TIGERS:
Both RD's attend each meal and assist the athletes with food selection and questions they may have concerning diet and nutrition. Each food item is labeled with a color-coded meal card signifying the fat/calorie content and an explanation of how that particular food helps with athletic performance and/or recovery. Educational flyers are posted around the Training Table as additional resources for the athletes.
Many pre and post practice meals were catered in for the soccer team. Some of these restaurants included Jimmy Johns, Pita Pit, Zoe's Kitchen, and New York Bagel. To ensure proper food choices, the LSU Sports RD analyzed each restaurant menu and provided a list of recommendations. The team used this list each time they placed their order.
