Sha'Carri Richardson has shared the best meal she prefers having for breakfast mostly on race day.

Reigning world 100m champion Sha’Carri Richardson has disclosed her go to breakfast meal when preparing for major races.

The world’s fastest woman in 2023 told Eating Well that she is certainly a foodie and she loves trying out different meals but she never goes back to eating what she doesn’t like.

Speaking of her typical breakfast, the American noted that it depends on timing but she spoke of her love affair with eggs on race day or any regular day.

She recently signed an ambassadorial deal with the Oikos Pro Drink and she seems to be loving it already since she emphasised that she on days when she doesn’t feel the need to have heavy breakfast, she usually goes for the drink.

“I'm a big foodie. I like to eat a little bit of everything when it comes to food. I like to try everything at once—no, I may not eat it again if I don't like it, but I'm very open to trying any type of food once before cancelling it out.

“I would say in the morning, it depends on timing and if I have time to get up and make something, but I definitely am a big fan of eggs. Eggs are something I really like to eat in the morning on race day or any regular day.

“And when I'm on the go and I don't want something too heavy starting the day, I definitely like my Oikos Pro Drink that contains 23 grams of protein.

“That is something convenient that I like to include. I'm able to drink it really quick and I do still feel like I'm putting the nutrients in my body that I can have going into practice on a day-to-day basis,” she said.

Richardson added that after training or a race, she usually prefers ice bathing or getting into a hot tub to decompress from the long day.

“I would say recovery has just been being attentive to doing my ice bathing or hot tub, as well as just decompressing from the day later on in the evening.

“It's something I like to do. I'll be talking to my family or getting in the pool doing some stretching and some abs. That’s how the day ends for me,” she said.

Speaking of her favourite snacks, the 24-year-old said: “I like dried fruits a lot, specifically dried mangoes, as well as peanuts and almonds. I keep it very light and straightforward when it comes to snacking.”
