Eat. Train. Race. Travel.

Welcome to Athlete Food - our continuous adventure to seek out healthy food around the globe and at our own dinner tables. Hope you are inspired to get on a plane or get out the plates and cook a healthy dinner tonight!

What Should I Eat?

How many times do you find yourself saying what should I eat before a workout? For us it's ALL. THE. TIME.

Sometimes we have fresh fruit on hand or grab a bite of leftovers, but most of the time we rely on our favorite power snack.  This easily assembled concoction has everything we need: easily digestible calories, protein...and chocolate. 

Enjoy!
