Gold Medalist Natalie Coughlin
The Choice of a Champion
Natalie Coughlin is an avid cook, and, as one of the world’s best athletes, she’s a passionate advocate of healthy eating and lifestyle choices. She loves to enjoy the bounty of her own garden, and stresses the importance of simple, seasonal, nourishing foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables. With her busy schedule and high-pressure life, Natalie’s definition of a healthy lifestyle includes preparing her own meals and fueling up with whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein.
Natalie loves the challenge of developing nutritious dishes that taste great, or making sweet treats that are healthier for you—and that’s just what she’s done in these recipes featuring California Dried Plums. She thinks of them as more than dried fruit. They’re a versatile flavor accent that can enhance both sweet and savory dishes. She likes to use them as a substitute for fats and sugar to reduce calories and to add nutrients and moisture without losing flavor.
