Sweet potatoes, papayas, blueberries, kale, spinach, organic meat, and avocados. These are the super-foods you should be stuffing your face with if you want to be like 2014 CrossFit Games champion, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet.
In an interview with Fitness Magazine, Leblanc-Bazinet revealed that her diet involves simple, protein-packed foods that efficiently fuel her body throughout her training days. “Our body is like a little machine and I want to know exactly how to fuel it,” she said. To start the day, she eats three eggs, kale, strawberries, and almond butter. As for lunch and dinner, she chooses from any of her super-foods with the occasional servings of salmon and banana. “I like making salad with kale, blueberry, and chicken with some avocado slices.”
She adds that shifting to a healthy diet overnight isn’t realistic, rather, you should make small changes in your meal plane each day. “I think what people need to understand is I didn’t start as the fittest woman on earth,” she said. “When I started CrossFit, I started like anyone else. I had to learn how to eat better and change my life habits. I think it’s really just taking one step at a time. So if it’s incorporating more greens into your meal, that’s one step. And then once that happens, you can go to the next one, but it’s a long process. If you can make one better decision every day, that’s already a winning situation.”
And her best advice? You can still have a cheat meal once a week! Hooray!
