Re: Good nutrition ideas?
I've found that living in Germany I'm eating much healthier than when I was living in the U.S.. It's much easier to stay off the junk food when the idea of it isn't being crammed down your throat constantly.
I'm not a vegetarian or anything, but I watch what I eat. I like, if I can, to eat a nice pasta dinner a few hours before playing. I feel like it helps me have the energy to get to the end of the set.
I don't like the energy drinks. Also, I don't drink alcohol at all when on tour or during shows. Not any reason outside of not wanting to feel sluggy while on the road or the next day. Also, to me, a drummer is like a bus driver. Everybody else is along for the ride. Wouldn't want a drunk bus driver. The whole thing could end up in a ditch somewhere.
After a show I'll try to eat a banana and drink water and try to get to bed at a reasonable hour.
