Olympic Gold Nutrition


Gold Medal Nutrition

I am pretty sure that the olympic athletes don't eat regularly at McDonalds, as some of the commercials lately would lead us to believe! For an athlete to perform at his/ her best, they need high quality fuel!

Most of us certainly don't need the quantity of food that olympic athletes need, but we do need the quality to perform and feel our best everyday!

Health journalist Michael Pollan has recently written several popular books regarding nutrition. He puts it very simply and straightforward when he says" Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants. " In other words, avoid processed foods as much as possible and fill half of your plate with veggies. Good advice!

If you need help creating a healthy meal plan for you and your family contact me:
