To get your muscles working optimally, they need energy, energy in the form of glucose. Healthy carbohydrate sources can most easily be converted into glucose by the body. This can also happen with proteins and fats, but that just takes a little longer or is a bit more difficult. It is for good reason that a plate of pasta is the meal that many top athletes eat on the day of a competition. Remember that fiber causes slower digestion, which means that you are less likely to get that boost of energy and that you have to wait a little longer after eating before you start training (otherwise your stomach will bother you). If you eat this meal as energy for your training or competition then choose a easily digestible variant of pasta (white instead of whole-wheat or zucchini noodles) and save the balls for after your workout.
You can play with the types of "pasta" you choose yourself. A wholemeal spelt variant, noodles based on buckwheat or get started with the spiralizer for zucchini noodles.
We cannot stress enough: immediately make extra balls, because you can store them very well in the freezer. You can also shape them into burgers! Eat them on a sandwich, with another meal or as a snack in between.
