Muscle Pudding – Recipe

Buzzword Warning!!

This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, dairy free, raw, natural, unprocessed….

But that’s not why I love this recipe. I love it because it is incredibly calorie dense, full of micronutrients, absolutely delicious, portable and filling. Everything that an athlete needs.

Plus, it was shared with me by a guy named Sajo (which is cool in and of itself), and he looks like this:

Sorry for the crappy cropping job, but it was the only shirtless pic I could find on his Facebook.

2.0 was born from the belief that 1.0 isn't good enough. The way we're approaching coaching, training, and development for hockey needs to be rethought. My own lessons have led me to rethink the way it's being done and I can't help but write about it. I'm writing for my 12, 13, 14, 15 year old self who didn't have this resource. I'm writing for parents who are putting their dollars and trust in coaches who are wasting all of it. I'm writing because I hope it can make a difference.
