It seems like there is always some new food trend in cycling…paleo, vegan, vegetarian. Or super foods like kale, broccoli, beets, blueberries and so on. Drink this and you’ll have more power, eat this way and you’ll recover quicker. So many promises from so many foods. But when you think about, all the claims made for all these foods and eating styles are merely the results of what food was meant to do: nourish and power our bodies. A well-balanced diet, with fresh fruits and vegetables can result in such amazing things if we let it. Let’s stop eating crap and expecting a few doses of real food to make spectacular differences in our performance. Let’s eat real food, make good decisions about what we put in our bodies and see what awesome things happen!
