As a health coach, one of my favorite topics to discuss with athletes (vegan or not) is how they can improve overall performance by eating plant based foods coupled with the timing of when to eat them. If you listen and take care of your body, it will take care of you. Athletes need to eat healthy food, because exercise can’t neutralize the effect of unhealthy food in the body. Get geared up for peak performance by nourishing your body with the proper fuel at the proper time!
There are a wide variety of plant-based foods that promote athletic performance. Endurance athletes, in particular, can stand to gain speed and energy by using vegan foods. Spirulina, maca root, turmeric, ginger, and sweet potatoes, are just a few superfood ingredients that make their way into my dishes each day.
