Q: What does healthy living mean to you?

To me, healthier living means to live a balanced lifestyle which consists of a wholesome diet with plenty of exercise.

Q: Why do you think it's important to lead a healthy lifetyle?

As an athlete optimal nutrition compliments my training, which increase my chances of performing at my best. When I retire, continuing a healthy lifestyle will help me maintain my quality of life and prevent chronic illnesses.

Q: What's your best healthy food tip?

A hot tip of mine to make a meal healthier is adding fruit to leafy salads which uses their natural sweetness rather than adding sugary dressings. One of my absolute favorite sides to any meal is a salad with kale, red cabbage and carrot topped with a mango and toasted pepitas.
