I asked that people take pictures of what they ate in a day (from sun up to sun down) and I got a few inquiries into what I was looking for. I just wanted pictures, a bio and some links (if they had them) to promote what athlete’s eat on a daily basis. I believe there is this belief that we don’t eat food. That our diets consist of egg whites, nut butter and air. In reality we couldn’t do what we do without the right combination of real foods (and no that does not include the fake meat at Taco Bell.
Today’s re-incarnated Athlete’s Plate is brought to you by Becky Rohrer who is 37 yrs old and taking a temporary retirement from the medical field to be a stay at home wife/mother of two young kids. She raises backyard chickens and keeps a large vegetable garden. Her PR’s are 5k, 0:19:05. Newport marathon, 3:37:30. Blue Lake sprint tri 1:25:04 (800yd Swim, 12mile Bike, 5k Run.) A Lifelong runner, back to back marathons brought on a Spring injury, which pushed her into the pool. A few lessons and she learned to swim for the first time. Did her first triathlon in June, and fell in love with the challenge, competition, and full body conditioning (sound familiar?)
Thank you to Becky for allowing me to post her Athlete’s Plate
There is nothing in this daily menu that I would take out from an athlete’s diet (the fish would have to be substituted for a vegan/vegetarian athlete.)
Becky – great job on your diet and terrific combination of macronutrients (carbs, protein, fats.)
If you would like to be featured on the Athlete’s Plate please contact me and we can schedule your menu to be posted.
