This article was written by Chrissy Wellington, M.S., C.N.S., L.D.N., C.P.T. and fantastic triathlete for Active. Interesting little reminders.

Breakfast: omega-3 rich eggs or egg whites, low-fat organic dairy, lean and clean meats, high protein, whole grains like steel cut oatmeal or quinoa.

Olympians Eat Organic
Here is the dirty Dozen list; be sure to make sure these items are well cleaned. Apples, celery, bell peppers, peaches, strawberries, nectarines, grapes, spinach, lettuce, cucumber, blueberries and potatoes.

Small Frequent Meals
Eat often, about every 4 hours

Hydrate often
Most athletes consume between 11 and 15 cups of FILTERED water daily

Preferred Power Foods
Almonds, chunk-light tuna in water, edamame, grilled chicken, greek yogurt, peanut butter, sprouted-grain breads.
Almonds and tuna are rich in magnesium which causes vessel relaxation and increases blood flow and oxygenation.
A Sample daily regime would include: 60% carbohydrates coming from a mixture of veggies, fruits, whole grains, 30% lean protein, beans, organic dairy, !0% quality fats, olive oil, canola, nuts, nut butters, seeds and avacados

A great little article that can be found on Active. I encourage you to read this article as most of us are Olympians, at least in heart!
