Steph Curry’s Diet

Summary

Curry eats a healthy, balanced diet consisting of fresh, whole, natural foods like vegetables, eggs, fruit and rice. Because time is at a premium in the Curry house-hold, he often starts the day with a smoothie. He is lucky that his wife Ayesha is a chef and has the habit of doing meal-prep so there’s always a healthy option available containing protein, a vegetable and a healthy starch for him to eat as a snack or post-workout meal. He eats whatever his wife makes, and that includes fancy desserts like bananas foster. One of his less common food quirks is hitting the carbs hard before a game, and he calls himself a popcorn addict. As far as energy, he has plenty and does not rely on coffee or energy drinks to get through his day.
