Primarily, you should be increasing your protein on practice days. This can help you build muscle more quickly. In general though, a balanced and complete diet of non-processed foods is your best bet. I know a lot of girls on my team have experimented with diet strategies and have decided they felt major improvements after cutting out wheat and/or dairy products. (Not me, I love these things.) But I think that derby convinces women to listen to their bodies when maybe they never really have before. Oh and for the bruising, get some arnica. It's an herb. You can get arnica as a topical cream or pills.

I can't decide if this is a dumb question or not... Is there any nutrition advice specifically for derby girls? Like do we need more calcium to keep our bones strong through all the hits and falls? Or is there something that will get rid of a bruise faster? Anybody heard of anything like that?
