Kudo Topic: Athletic Boost
More and more world-class, elite-level athletes are using plant-based diets to help their performance and recovery. 🏅 Science is discovering and confirming what some incredible athletes have known for a while: you need the best fuel for a powerhouse performance. 🤓 More about Athletic Boost.
I love these meals! I have a busy schedule and these meals not only give me the nutrition I need as a plant based athlete, but also free up a lot of time in meal prep. I am an ultra distance cyclist and I have a huge race in June 2020 called the Race Across the West. It is a 930 mile race with a 3-1/2 day time limit. It starts in Oceanside CA, through Arizona, Utah and finishing in Durango, CO. It is one of the toughest ultra races in the world.
I am using the race as a fundraiser for Feeding America and to use it to bring awareness of proper nutrition through whole food plant based diet. I am a two-time cancer survivor and was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis about 7 years ago. At the time of my RA diagnosis, I ate a lot of fast food, and processed food.
It was taking a lot of medications to control inflammation and other chronic medical conditions. I transitioned to a whole food plant based diet 6 years ago and my whole life has changed! I am completely off all medications and now doing ultra distance cycling races of 400 plus miles.
One of the things I love so much about LeafSide meals is that I can take them with me on the road and use them to fuel me before, during and after the races when I am not at home. I am insured that I will have good 100 percent plant-based meals when I travel. I love your meals!!!

My first smoothie and savory bowl were just amazing. The ingredients are outstanding, I was just blown away by the blend of superfoods, (the B12!!) and the flavor.
I am committed to and knowledgeable about food and good health practices but not always able to pull it together the way you have - I am relieved and enthusiastic to have these meals ready to go without refrigeration and time consuming preparation.
The times I feel like cooking I know I can make it great, but in between it feels so good to know I can stay on plan.
I stopped other plans because the packaging made me crazy. The tiny box and planet healthy packets were such a relief!
When I got the box I immediately called my daughter to come over and see, we split one of the smoothies, and later one of the bowls - added a few ingredients, and had a filling and complete meal for 2. She is a high level performance athlete, and planet warrior - and she was sold!
I for one will stick with LeafSide because they are the answer to my food plan prayers - I have autoimmune disease and have researched every plan on the market - finding LeafSide allows me to maintain my health on my budget and with my busy lifestyle.

This food is amazing! My system has been too acidic. I've been experiencing digestion problems and inflammation. I can feel the difference after eating this food for a few days now! My stomach is no longer bloated, and I was able to get a great workout in without feeling heavy and in my own way. I'm alert and focused, with no brain fog. I feel SOOO much better overall.

I just got back from an 8 day hiking and road trip! 🥾🥾 This is the second year we've used LeafSide meals for our travels, and they are hands down the healthiest and tastiest meal option out there! The Sweet-bowls feuled my husband and I on our 12 mile hike. Never stop making these meals LeafSide! 💕👏🏻🙏🏻
