Kerri Walsh Jennings: Energizing Recipies With Honey

Posted: Updated:
She’s a mom and a gold medalist on the beach, but her secret weapon is something our viewers already have in their pantry. Kerri Walsh Jennings is preparing for her 2014 season and her ultimate goal of competing in the 2016 games. She turns to one ingredient to keep her feeling energized—honey.

A quick and natural energy boost, Jennings uses honey to power through her busy days. At about 17 grams of carbohydrates and 64 calories per tablespoon, honey provides Jennings energy her body can use quickly especially during her grueling volleyball circuit. How does she survive? Her sweet survival kit of course!

Jennings can be found turning to the golden ingredient as a sweet addition to her post-work out shakes and her family’s favorite snack: almond butter and honey sandwiches.

Some of her favorite nutrition tips include:

*Honey is a natural sweetener, a perfect complement to a paleo-based diet. For example, she makes a family-favorite paleo bread that uses honey as a natural sweetener. Her one year old daughter Scout is a big fan!

*Kerri puts honey in her shakes, on yogurt and she will eat honey throughout her days to help her perform at the highest level.

Some of her favorite energizing recipes include: DEMO

Plain Greek yogurt, mango, almond slices & honey (a favorite dessert)

Almond butter and honey sandwiches on whole wheat bread- a mommy and kid-friendly favorite!

1) She’s on her AVP and FIVB tour now. Just returned from St. Petersburg, FL last weekend where they won and set a record.

Background:

“As a three-time Olympic gold medal winner and beach volleyball's all-time leader for domestic and international wins combined, Kerri Walsh Jennings already holds nearly every accolade in the sport.

Sunday, at the 2014 AVP St. Petersburg Open final in front of an estimated 1,500 spectators at Spa Beach Park, Walsh Jennings added one more to her resume.

Teaming with new partner April Ross, the AVP Tour's 2013 most valuable player, Walsh Jennings broke a tie with former longtime partner Misty May-Treanor for most Tour victories, defeating fourth-seeded Brooke Sweat and Lauren Fendrick 19-21, 21-15, 15-11 to earn her 67th overall AVP win”
