Kerri Walsh, arguably one of the greatest women's beach volleyball players in the world recently stepped up to the winners podium in Russia alongside her beach volleyball teammate April Ross to accept the gold medal and trophy for winning the 2014 Moscow Grand Slam.
The sight of her on the podium with the gold medal is a common but one that has impressed volleyball observers as to her ability to merge her talents with a new partner so quickly and more significantly to her being able to still play at such a high level even though she is 35 years old and had her most recent child in April of 2013.
Interestingly she attributes a major part of her being able to still compete at a high level due to her focus on what she puts in her body. The mother of three disclosed that at this stage of her career she loads up on lean protein and pays close attention to her diet but that her superfood is ... honey.
Whenever she needs a quick burst of energy or feels as if she is lacking energy she consumes some honey and she puts it in her smoothies and teas. As a child honey was a major part of her diet and after the 2012 London Olympics she decided to make it a major component of her diet and as an in-competition energy supplement.
Last week she and April Ross defeated the top-ranked Brazilian team of Talita Antunes and Taiana Lima in three sets in Moscow to earn their biggest win of the beach volleyball season and it seems like Kerri Walsh's diet, in particular her love of honey may been a important part of that success.
