This October, we met up with former POTM (player of the month) Kamaile Ho in the Camp Bellalete Kitchen. Kamaile is a pitcher from Torrance, California and is the daughter of Allison and Warren Ho. Allison and Warren are passionate softball parents, as well as busy school teachers! They are committed to providing Kamaile with a healthy kitchen, which in turn helps her progress in the sport of softball, and in all of life.
We asked Kamaile to share her favorite fall recipe and she chose Whole Foods 365 Spiced Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix, her favorite fall treat after a long day on the softball field. We all need a treat and how about a healthy easy option?
A big reason why we liked her idea, it shows there are healthy EASY options that come in a box, that simplify life in the kitchen for you busy parents, players, and families out there.
You can get this mix at your local Whole Foods. Kamaile has a few recommendations for key substitutes that make this a healthier option, you can also pick up at Whole Foods:
milk: substitute it for almond milk, Kamaile uses Whole Foods 365
canola oil: substitute it for avocado oil or coconut oil, Kamaile's favorite is avocado oil
frosting: substitute for powdered sugar, also much easier all you have to do is sprinkle a little on top. Kamaile recommends the Whole Foods 365.
Yum, we tried it with Kamaile... its so good.
So get in your kitchen, try it out, have fun, take pictures! Be sure to tag us @bellalete, #bellalete, #campbellalete
Camp Bellalete* is new! It consists of 4 categories we are going to work together with you on. In the Kitchen - eating like an athlete, In the Gym - training like an athlete, At the Table - have an athletes mindset and Self Care - sleep, beauty, all of that we as athletes need too! We believe these are four areas that are really important for athletes off the softball field to focus on, in order to be their best and reach their potential.
Heres to fall, enjoy the season, enjoy the pumpkins!
Keep working hard we are always here cheering for you.
Stay the course,
Samaya, October POTM gave it a big thumbs up 🎃 👍
