If you've ever stumbled into a CrossFit gym or heard raving reviews from followers of the intense exercise regimen, you know how serious these workouts are. In addition to the buzzy training routines, the fitness company also puts on something called the CrossFit games, which is pretty much exactly what you'd imagine. It's an arduous competition of physical fitness, and Katrin Davidsdottir, an Icelandic athlete, has won it twice.
Needless to say "The Fittest Woman on Earth" (a title Davidsdottir earned for coming out on top at the CrossFit games) knows a thing or two about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. She recently spilled her diet and nutrition secrets to PopSugar, sharing that she focuses on colorful veggies and lean meats while avoiding added sugars. "Nutrition is very important to me. It's another piece of the training routine," she tells PopSugar. Curious what this seriously strong woman eats in a day? This is exactly what a CrossFit star eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
For breakfast, Davidsdottir eats a scramble made with slaw cabbage, peppers, apples, coconut oil, cinnamon, salt and pepper, two egg whites, and two whole eggs. She also pairs this with a side of oatmeal.
Lunchtime includes two high-protein salads. She'll make one with butter lettuce, edamame, and strawberries, and the other with broccoli slaw, roasted sweet potatoes, and egg whites.
At dinner, Davidsdottir eats another filling salad. This one consists of sweet butter lettuce, baby kale, edamame, cherry tomatoes, avocado, yogurt ranch dressing, feta, Cajun shrimp, wild rice, and sweet potatoes.
