This week on the pod, I share my 5 favorite foods and 5 favorite meals for athletes either new to plant-based eating or who want to simply add some new ideas into their routine. It can seem daunting to start eating more plants as an athlete, and what to even buy at the grocery store is the first hurdle to overcome. So I’ve chosen 5 foods and 5 meals (which include all of the foods) to get you started, and each one is evidence-based for health and performance, and also inexpensive and accessible at any standard grocery store. You’ll also hear from my buddies Vic and Ian who are vegan jedi masters, share their favorites and some tips.

And if you have a question about performance nutrition, sports science, meditation, the difference in airspeed between a european and african swallow, then send me your question to email@example.com and if you're feeling especially spicy, you can record yourself asking it in the voice memos app on your phone and send it to me to play on the air like Ian and Vic did for this episode. That sounds like a fun way to do Q&A.
