ON EATING TO STAY HEALTHY, FIT, AND ENERGIZED
Kathryn Budig, internationally celebrated yoga teacher, likes to “aim true” when it comes to her diet as well as her lifestyle.
“I’m careful not to link myself to certain diets because my body is always changing, but that being said, I always prefer to eat a plant-heavy diet (my two major rules: eat more vegetables and eat something green every day),” she says. “Protein shakes are imperative to me when I’m on the road or in need of quick and accessible protein.” Budig is a fan of EVOLVE® Classic Chocolate ready-to-drink plant-based protein shakes, which are dairy-, soy-, and gluten-free. “I’m a huge foodie who won't sacrifice taste, so having a protein shake that is absolutely delicious and provides me with the nutrients I need is a win-win.”
Her Go-To Meals
“I start the day with two large glasses of water with added trace minerals and rose water,” says Budig. “I always have an oath or almond milk latte, and breakfast fluctuates - I make a simple grain-free pancake recipe, coconut yogurt parfaits, or soft-boiled eggs. I love making green smoothies when the weather warms up (this is my post-yoga drink), and dinner often consists of my quinoa bowls (a mix of beans, roasted tomatoes, greens, avocado, and ample hot sauce) or home- made cauliflower rice with some kind of protein on top
Staying Healthy on the Road
“I travel with all my potions! Protein shakes, collagen, essential oils, liquid chlorophyll, supplements, digestive enzymes, and as much water as I can get down. I always have myofascial release balls in my bag, Chinese herb patches for soreness, a jade roller, and cactus-collagen eye pads to combat physical fatigue.”
Budig’s Top 3 Lifestyle “Rules”
1. Drink more water.
2. Get outside daily, and if possible, be barefoot.
3. Sweat daily, and if you can’t, take a walk or meditate.
