She recently discussed the different parts of her paddle plan and cross training, and now she's sharing details about her diet along with a few of her favorite recipes. Find out how Seychelle fuels her body below.


Diet Principles

Clean, plant-based vegan diet, fruit and vegetable heavy.

  • high calorie intake
  • fruits & vegetables
  • homemade kombucha

I eat a clean, plant-based diet. People often ask how I get enough protein and how many calories I eat. The answer is, I eat A LOT. about 3,000 calories a day. I get protein from whole grains, leafy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, seitan (wheat) and pea protein supplement. I also drink lots of water. I make my own kombucha which I drink everyday. I have alcohol about once a week in small amounts. I sleep 7-9 hours every night. And I wake up and meditate everyday. A typical daily diet for me looks like:

Breakfast: Homemade granola with almond milk or yogurt
Snack: Protein smoothie after morning training session 
Lunch: Avocado toast or vegan grilled cheese on ezekiel bread for lunch
Snack: Yogurt with berries and nuts 
Snack: Bean Salad 
Snack: Shanti bar
Dinner: Field Roast vegan sausage with: grilled veggies and couscous or pasta or a bowl of soup
Dessert: Dates and peanut butter 

Recipe #1 - Granola

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons honey

Mix well and bake at 325 for 30 minutes stirring twice. I have no idea if this recipe even remotely resembles making actual granola, but it's my version that I made up and it's healthy and yummy. I store it in a big tupperware in the fridge.
