What powers us through four workouts a day, 20+ races a year? The short answer: simple, wholesome food. The long answer includes a ton of meals! Here you’ll find our favorite pre- and post-workout snacks, the makings of a triathlete-sized salad, and learn the finer points of cooking in hotel rooms. Every few weeks we’ll share our favorite recipes for power breakfasts, protein-packed dinners, vegetable-laden juices, and sweet treats. Our old friend Melissa Lasher edits the Athlete Food section. A freelance writer focused on food and the outdoors, she has contributed to publications including Runner’s World, National Geographic Adventure, and The San Francisco Chronicle.
