Welcome to my blog! My name is Jules and I am a high school student who loves sunny days, quiet mornings, being active, matcha and of course, food! I love trying new recipes using other people’s delicious creations, and I enjoy coming up with my own unique food combinations that are super delicious. I love eating nutritious foods that fuel my body in the best way possible, and of course that includes treats like a gooey cinnamon roll from time to time.
I decided to name this blog Athl-eats because 1. I am an athlete, and 2. I eat a lot. So it seemed fitting lol! I have been involved in sports ever since I was 4 years old when I started playing soccer. Since then I’ve played just about every sport you can think of. I love the social aspect of sports and the way they make you feel physically and mentally. Growing up as an athletic person, I’ve always been motivated to make good decisions when it comes to food.
Three years ago I started a new sport that has become super popular in more recent years; CrossFit. I knew about it because 6 years ago my uncle opened his own CrossFit gym. I thought it was such a cool idea and I was very intrigued. In January of grade 8 my mom and grandmother both joined our local CrossFit gym. My grandmother could honestly probably beat me in an arm wrestle! Then that following summer I joined the gym. I instantly loved CrossFit in a different way than I had ever loved any other sport. I loved how the sport provides individual goals, but also has a team dynamic thanks to the gym’s great community.
The more I began to train at the gym, the more passionate I became about the importance of being active, and how important nutrition is as well.
I decided to start this blog in hopes of creating a website that you can use to get some food inspiration, try out new recipes, talk about living healthy lifestyles, and more!
