“I make sure to cover my macros at every meal: protein, fats, carbs. As an athlete, getting enough proteins in each meal is especially important. In my opinion, a balanced diet is the keystone of a healthy lifestyle. Balanced means: a little bit of everything, and everything in good measure! That’s something you can stick to even when you’re busy: Many balanced meals are super easy to make and can be prepared in no time. And if I don’t have time to cook, I meal-prep ahead of time. In addition, there are plenty of healthy snacks to choose from, including pre-cut vegetables, fruit, or nuts.”

“Breakfast is my most important meal of the day. I make breakfast a priority by carefully selecting the foods I eat to make sure they fuel my body and provide me with the energy I need to kickstart my day. In the past, all I would have for breakfast was white bread, chocolate spread, and a cup of coffee, which only kept me full for about an hour. Now, my day starts with a bowl of muesli with rice milk, high-quality whole-grain bread, or a pancake with honey supplied by my father, who is a beekeeper. And I have a KIKU apple for breakfast every day. That’s for sure. The juicy apple slices give me the energy I need, and when combined with valuable proteins and carbs with a low glycemic index they keep me full for a long time even when training. This way, I can prevent those nasty blood sugar spikes that make you unnecessarily tired.”

“For me, a balanced diet has always been fundamental. During my entire career as an athlete, I refused to take any nutritional supplements, because I’m firmly convinced that a healthy, balanced diet provides me with all the nutrients I need. Sourcing my foods locally has become increasingly important to me, as well. I remember how when I was little, my mom spent summers preparing and preserving seasonal fruits and vegetables for the winter. It’s just as natural for me now to cook my own meals from scratch and source many of the foods I use from my own garden or the farmer’s market!”

“Sustainability is key—that’s doubly true for what we eat! I try to live a considerate life, and I do what I can to be eco-conscious, within reason of course. I am absolutely convinced that every tiny step counts and can lead to great things. For example, I try to eat as little meat as possible. Eating animal products is just something we have gotten used to over time: why not change it up? When shopping, I make sure to buy products with sustainable packaging. There’s hardly any extra cost involved, but it definitely makes a difference.”
