I love a good peanut-butter based protein shake!
I love fruit! Pineapples, grapes, oranges, and apples are my favorite.
My go-to meal is often sweet potatoes, jerk chicken, and cabbage. When I'm on the run, I love grabbing a bite at "healthier" places like Chipotle and Moe's as well as Subway, Tropical Smoothie, and Herbalife Shakes.
My favorite snacks are: oven roasted turkey breast, air popped popcorn, plain Cheerios, almond butter, multigrain crackers, fruit, almond milk, oatmeal, and protein bars!
You will always find me munching on a lean protein such as ground turkey, chicken breast, seafood, green leafy veggies, and when I have those sweet tooth moments my go to is fresh fruit.
Usually, it’s a romaine salad with a protein (either chicken or shrimp), very light dressing and water. Afterward, I like to replenish with a protein shake and some sort of carb to refresh my energy stores.
I love having a bowl of steel-cut oats mixed with banana, blueberries, and some honey drizzled on top. I really enjoy the Orgain Organic Protein (which is a plant-based protein powder). I put a scoop in with my water or almond milk, and it's a great source of protein post-workout!
My favorite pre-workout meal is taco seasoned ground turkey with black beans and jasmine rice. I refuel with half of an avocado and two boiled eggs!
My pre-workout can be avocado toast, some turkey, and an apple or my favorite — peanut butter! My refuel? A full meal! My training sessions are often crazy, so after I NEED food — protein, veggies, and sometimes rice.
