GETTING TO KNOW A STAR ATHLETE: MEET VERONICA LATSKO
Veronica Latsko is a professional women's soccer player for the Houston Dash and Sydney FC. As our newest Nuzest Ambassador, Veronica is a huge fan of our Clean Lean Protein. We sat down with Veronica (virtually), to talk about life, soccer, and of course, Nuzest!
For those of us who don’t know you, who is Veronica?
I’m a professional women’s soccer player playing for Houston Dash in the US and I also play for Sydney FC in Australia.
What does being a Nuzest sports influencer mean to you?
I’m excited to share what helps make me a better athlete on and off the field. Clean Lean Protein by Nuzest has helped me stay fit and healthy for the entirety of the NWSL Challenge Cup Tournament. I think it’s so important for athletes to understand how crucial protein can be for your development.
How do you make healthy choices and avoid temptations when it comes to your nutrition?
Nuzest actually makes it really easy to avoid temptation and sugar because their protein can be used as an awesome healthy substitute. I make so many different types of healthy banana breads and treats using Nuzest!
What is your favorite indulgence?
I’ve always loved ice cream, but as a healthy substitute (that tastes practically the same), I make "Nice Cream" with frozen bananas and Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein!
What is your favorite healthy snack?
I am a huge smoothie fan! They’re the easiest thing to take on the go, which fits perfectly with my lifestyle.
How do you stay active and fit?
Outside of soccer, I love to go on long runs and of course, long walks with my pup.
What is your favorite form of exercise?
Playing soccer with my amazing teammates!
Aside from being a soccer superstar, what do you do for fun?
I love being outdoors, whether it’s going for a long walk and listening to a podcast, or going for a hike in the woods/mountains.
What advice do you have for people wanting to kick-start a healthy lifestyle or to pump up their nutrition?
Being healthy doesn’t mean you have to run 10 miles a day or deprive yourself of all things delicious. There are so many little tweaks that you can make to your day-to-day living that will help you kick-start a healthy lifestyle.
