What I Eat in a Training Week

I get a lot of questions when it comes to what I eat when training. I am still learning about my body and adjusting what I eat all the time. I think the way you eat should be constantly changing as you change,

introducing new foods and recipes and not being afraid to try new foods. As an athlete I make sure I am meeting all my energy and nutrient needs. What I eat may not work for someone else because their body is different. I am also not a nutritionist and if you are searching what works best for you I suggest talking to a nutritionist. Below I have posted 3 days of what I eat in a typical training week!
