It is so important that athletes fuel properly for their sport, but also to eat foods that actually taste good, too. Have you tried putting together meals that are "healthy", but taste awful?

Athletes have higher nutrient needs than the general population. Not any ol' bowl of ingredients will cut it for an athlete. The elements of a performance bowl include those athletes need to recover and perform their best at their sport, as well as ingredients that taste good and leave you feeling satisfied. Recently, I have been adding a source of dairy to my bowls for both nutrition and satisfaction. Dairy contains carbohydrates, a high-quality source of protein, and key vitamins and minerals that keep me healthy as a recreational athlete, including; calcium and vitamin D. It keeps me full longer and, let's be honest, tastes amazing.
