Power Foods for the Fitness Enthusiast
Things To Know
For centuries, athletes have been following plant-based diets to achieve a competitive advantage. Recently, plant-based diets have gained popularity in a variety of sports. Perhaps that’s because vegan athletes are leading in endurance sports, weightlifting, and even Formula One racing. However, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from a plant-based diet. A low-fat vegan diet comprising whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables provides the ideal fuel for any physical activity. It also demonstrates qualities for enhanced recovery over high-fat and animal-based diets. The Power Foods for the Fitness Enthusiast class aims to empower attendees with the knowledge and skills needed to prepare simple, nutritious meals that fuel optimal fitness and recovery. Enjoy a cooking demonstration and learn how to make five plant-based Smoothie Bowls for optimal nutrition and quick recovery.
