The only woman to win an IndyCar race hasn't had the results in NASCAR she'd hoped for (she placed 17th at the Goody's 500 at Martinsville Speedway this past weekend)-- but Danica Patrick doesn't mince words when she talks about her goal on the track: She doesn't want to be a participant. She wants to win.
While talking about her current campaign with Life Happens, Patrick shared one of her favorite training meals:
Day and time: A Tuesday around 8 a.m.
Place: At home in Mooresville, North Carolina, with the "Today" show on in the background and my dogs Dallas and Ella staring at me because they want anything that I have.
What I'm eating: Bison hash
Why I'm eating it: Because I eat it almost every morning -- at least 60 to 70 percent of the time.
Whose recipe: Mine! I certainly didn't create hash, but it is pretty unique, compared to what most people eat for breakfast. Especially since it has bison -- that's not the most common protein to eat.
1/3 of a sweet potato (cubed)
1/3 cup chopped bell pepper
1/3 cup diced onion
Coconut or avocado oil
1/4 pound ground bison
1/4 of an apple -- diced
1/3 of an avocado
Sauté 1/3 of a sweet potato, cubed small; 1/3 cup chopped bell pepper and 1/3 cup diced onion in a pan with 2 teaspoons coconut oil or avocado oil until slightly brown.
In a separate pan, sauté 1/4 pound of ground bison, sea salt and pepper to taste
Add two handfuls of spinach to wilt in the pan with the bison. Add 1/4 of a diced apple at the end so it stays crunchy.
Combine bison, spinach, apple and veggies and add 1/3 of an avocado topped with sea salt and pepper.
