Favourite Meals
Performance | Mixed Berry Breakfast

"My go-to pre-race meal. Not always the easiest to get food down on race morning especially when nerves are high. Sits really well in my stomach, nice & light and the convenience is great when you're racing in some remote places with limited kitchen supplies."

Performance | Grass-Fed Lamb, Mint & Rosemary

"Kind of speaks for its self. A good kiwi-feed most welcomed when you’re abroad giving a nice flavour of home."

Performance | Indian style Free-Range Chicken Curry

"I’m a sucker for a good Indian takeaway, usually a go-to when it’s been a big day. Nice to have the same thing but with quality ingredients and a whole lot healthier."
