There are very few people more qualified on giving others the ins and outs on living a healthy lifestyle more than a professional athlete. Even though there may be only a finite amount of days in a particular league’s season, the grind is year-round.
Lisa Leslie recently was a guest on Fox 2 KTVI-TV in St. Louis and she talked about how eating healthy can play a key role in living a healthy life.

After briefly discussing much that has happened in her life since hanging up her jersey—including her recent work as a sideline reporter for the NBA on TNT’s “Players Only” coverage, her “From the Court to the Boardroom” book, and her appearing on CBS Sports Network’s “We Need to Talk,” she discussed the balancing act that comes with her various roles.
A typical day for me, up at 6 a.m., I make breakfast and dinner at the same time so I can have meal prepping.
Leslie says meal prepping is a major element of this because she wants to instill the virtues of healthy living in her children. In addition to touting fruits and vegetables as healthy choices, she also mentioned Lorissa’s Kitchen—which offers four recipes of food (Korean Barbecue, Ginger Teriyaki, Sweet Chili, and Szechuan Peppercorn) and became available nationally last year.
It’s a go-to snack for my kids, it’s a go-to snack for all moms. You can fit these into your purse. And I highly recommend it. But, at the end of the day, we are our children’s first teachers and we have to teach them to make healthier choices.
She closed her remarks by mentioning children battling Type-2 diabetes and obesity—and how healthier living an prevent those from happening.
