Avocado Toast, Sweet Potatoes & Black Bean Bowl, and Noodles w/ Broth & Broccoli
With 20 years of professional level training & racing under his belt, combined with a love of good food (that includes culinary schooling), Coach Cody is sharing some of his favorite recipes and food choices with our followers.
The goal with our W.T.F. Series (Win Through Food) is to provide meal ideas to our athletes which they can incorporate into their own lives. The primary requirements of each meal is that is easy (minimal skill/equipment required), quick (minimal time required) & nutritious (packed full of healthful nutrients).
