4 Healthy High-Carb Protein Dishes Your Star Athlete Will Crave

If young athletes are not fueled properly, they can't achieve great results. I believe this fact, and so do scores of elite athletes who eat high-carb, plant-based meals. Pro athletes such as David Carter and Morgan Mitchell consume simple, whole foods such as steel-cut oats, berries and sweet potatoes to meet their high-energy demands. Many go on to achieve their personal best with greater energy levels, fewer injuries and shorter recovery times.

Creating tasty, power-packed dishes in the kitchen is easy - something a young athlete can typically do in less than five minutes.

#1 Banana Oat Smoothie With Almond Milk

Ready in two minutes, oats are a protein-powerhouse. When you combine them with ripe banana, peanut butter and almond milk, you get a smoothie that satisfies for hours.

How to make it:

• In a blender: add 1 banana, 1 cup milk, ½ cup oats and 1 tablespoon peanut butter. Blend until smooth and creamy. For extra sweetening, add one soaked date.

#2 Overnight Muesli Protein Bowl

Instead of regular oats, try muesli, a nutritious mix of rolled oats, nuts, seeds and raisins. This healthy, whole-grain breakfast is chewy, crunchy and pleasantly sweet. Soak it in coconut milk, and refrigerate overnight.

How to make it:

• In a medium-size mason jar or bowl: combine ½ cup muesli, 2 tablespoons hemp seeds and coconut milk. Mix all ingredients; cover and refrigerate. The next morning, wake up to the easiest super breakfast ever - softened, nutty and delicious.

#3 Easy Chocolate Mousse

This creamy chocolate mousse is made with simple yet healthy ingredients. It contains cacao, which is actually good for you. To create the creamy texture, avocado is combined with banana. For the right amount of sweetness, add one date.

How to make it:

• In a blender, add: ½ ripe avocado, 1 ripe banana, 1 frozen banana, 1 tablespoon cacao powder and 1 soaked date. Blend until whipped smooth. Eat immediately, or refrigerate to thicken.

#4 Cherry-Berry Chia Pudding

Chia seeds have an impressive profile: high in amino acids, omega-3s and minerals. When combined with high-energy fruits, such as cherries and strawberries, this antioxidant-rich protein pudding meets all your nutrient needs.

How to make it:

• In a blender, add:1 cup almond milk, ½ cup strawberries, and 1 soaked date. Blend. Pour into a medium-size mason jar. Add 2 tablespoons chia seeds. Mix and then add 5 sweet pitted cherries. Mix. Let set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before eating.

To make multiple-course meals in less than 20 minutes, create sweet potato dishes such as baked wedges with a creamy dip. Add vegetables and protein to complete your meal.
