The Healthy Eats Q & A: Olympic Medalist Hannah Kearney
So just how do those Olympic athletes fuel the demands of their sport? Freestyle skier Hannah Kearney, who won a bronze medal in Sochi, gave Healthy Eats a few insights into how she eats to compete. Perhaps not so surprisingly, the Chobani-sponsored athlete enjoys getting her Greek yogurt on -- but there a few other ingredients that win a spot at the snack podium.
A: Food is fuel for my training, but it is also meant to be enjoyed and shared. As a result, I put thought into eating balanced, delicious and healthy meals so that I feel my best.
A: I like to eat a smoothie on my way to train. Chobani yogurt combined with peanut butter, honey, banana and frozen berries makes a tasty smoothie. After a workout, I usually eat a full meal, but if I don't have time, I like to top a Chobani Greek yogurt with some Bear Naked fruit and nut granola.
A: I love to cook, so I always spend a lot of time in my kitchen when I am at home. I experiment with different recipes and cuisines all of the time. Cottage cheese pancakes are one of my simple specialties.
A: Chicken baked in plain Greek yogurt, garlic, spices and Parmesan is moist, delicious and healthy.
