If your jump takes place in the morning, consider a bowl of cereal or foods high in protein, such as eggs. If you’re skydiving in the afternoon, a sandwich should be fine. You might be so nervous you can’t bring yourself to eat anything. If this is the case, consider blending fruit and yogurt into a delicious smoothie.
