The Diet Of An LPGA Pro

Michelle Wie burst onto the golf scene back when she was just a child. She continued that success as an adult and has four LPGA championship wins to her name, including the U.S. Women’s Open in 2014. Injuries are part of being a professional athlete though, and she finds herself sidelined due to injuring her wrist. Wie explained to ESPN what food she was enjoying to help her on the road to recovery.

Mango Turmeric Smoothie Bowl

Wie is suffering from an injury at the moment, so she’s found something in her diet that can help her recover quicker. The golfer had surgery on her wrist in 2018 and by April 2019 needed more time off to recuperate. She says there is one meal that has really been helping her get on the road to recovery as quickly as possible, a mango and turmeric smoothie bowl.

The Benefits Of A Smoothie Bowl

Wie says she loves smoothie bowls in general because they are easy for her to digest right before she goes out to practice. Plus it’s really easy to pack in the right mixture of nutrients into one tasty meal. The secret ingredient in her smoothie bowls at the moment is turmeric because of its anti-inflammatory qualities.

Wie says she is always fighting against inflammation due to playing golf so often and the injuries she gets through that. Her recipe is the perfect boost for her body, and with the mango and banana, she says you don’t even taste the turmeric.

Make It Yourself

The recipe is pretty simple for this smoothie that is keeping this LPGA player as healthy as possible. Wie came up with the recipe herself, and it starts with some frozen fruit. First you throw in 1 ½ cups of frozen mangoes with a frozen banana and one teaspoon of turmeric golden milk powder.

Wie then adds a ½ scoop of vegan protein powder and ⅔ of a cup of coconut milk. Blitz all of that in a blender and top it off with unsweetened coconut flakes, dried goji berries, chia seeds, and refined sugar-free granola. Her final touch is to throw on some homemade cashew-walnut butter.

Eating like a professional athlete often requires a lot of commitment, but Michelle Wie’s recipe doesn’t take long and really helps your body recover quicker.
