In a cover story for Vogue magazine, American decathlete and two-time Olympic champion, Ashton Eaton, professed his love for Spartan Muesli, a menu item at Santa Barbara's Backyard Bowls right out of the Spartan Diet.
In fact I developed the item for Backyard Bowls years ago while consulting for the company. (The chain has four locations -- three in or near Santa Barbara and one in Los Angeles.) If you ever get a chance to visit, their entire menu is fantastic -- and fantastically healthy.
The mention came about when Eaton was playfully arguing with supermodel Gigi Hadid during a Vogue cover shoot about which Backyard Bowls item was their favorite (with Eaton favoring the Spartan Muesli and Hadid arguing in favor of Berry bowl with peanut butter).
Eaton holds the world record in both the decathlon and indoor heptathlon.
So there you have it. The world's greatest athlete loves an item from the World's Healthiest Diet. Makes sense!
