Maya Moore Is Winning...On And Off The Court
September 15, 2015
The partnership between Beyond Meat and Maya Moore began over a love for food. From sweet potato pancakes in the morning, to finishing the day off with a big bowl of quinoa pasta topped with Beyond Beef Meatballs or Chicken Tenders; eating right and eating well is a major part of Maya's life.
In addition to winning in the kitchen, she's pretty adept at winning on the court. In her four-year career at the University of Connecticut, she was an AP All American each year, won 2 national titles, and lost a total of 4 GAMES! After entering the professional ranks, her winning hasn't tapered off either: 4 time All-Star, 2 time WNBA Champion, 2014 WNBA MVP, and member on Team USA's 2012 Gold Medal team.
When she's not cutting down nets she's putting them up with her series of kids camps held around the country. Along with talking finer points of the game, Maya loves to school her campers on the importance of proper nutrition. Like most young players, crushing a bag of M&M's in between tournament games was common practice. While the sugar rush provided a quick burst of energy, by 2nd half you've hit the wall. It wasn't until college that Maya began to make the transition to a cleaner diet, which is when she noticed her game start to elevate as well. She's been going beyond ever since.
