Canadian short track speed skater Charles Hamelin is a national hero, having racked up five Olympic medals (three being gold) on top of holding the 2018 title of World Champion in his sport. Competing at the highest level requires determination, discipline, intense training — and of course — a healthy diet. You can imagine our excitement when he tagged @goodfoodca showing off his latest Goodfood culinary creation, Yogurt-Tahini Marinated Chicken – with Chopped Salad & Herbed Rice!
With the busy, demanding schedule of a professional athlete, finding the time to meal plan and grocery shop is a challenge. Charles says that part of his secret to managing his time while maintaining a balanced and varied diet is his weekly Goodfood delivery.
“I’ve been using Goodfood for almost 2 years now and it’s really the best. As an athlete, I want to eat healthy but I often don’t have the time to prepare my dinners in advance and go to the grocery store. With Goodfood everything comes ready to cook and you just follow the recipe. The menu is always different, tasty and healthy.”
We asked Charles if eating Goodfood every week would help us achieve our dream of becoming Olympians too. Apparently, it takes a little more than that — who knew?
