This past weekend, Canadian Charlotte Prouse certainly gained more of a fan following. The runner, who competes for the University of New Mexico and hails from London, Ont., was the top Canadian woman to cross the finish line at the NCAA Division One Cross-Country Championships. She ran 19:49 for 6K and helped her team to first place overall. Individually, she placed 12th.
It’s no secret that Prouse treats her body right in order to run that fast. She actually has a separate Instagram, Fuelling Foodie, where she posts her best breakfasts, lunches and dinners. What exactly is this woman eating to have become such a champ? Well… we browsed through and picked some of our favourites. For the Canadian Running twist, find similar recipes in each of the below descriptions.
