Here’s what he told the IndyStar about his daily eats: 
  • Breakfast: Engine 2 cereal (shredded wheat, rolled oats, whole grains) with almond milk, banana, chia and flax seeds. Smoothie with fruits, veggies, nuts, spinach and kale.
  • Snack: Apple, pear, orange or carrots.
  • Lunch: Vega protein smoothie with kale, spinach, banana and other assorted fruit.
  • Dinner: Baked sweet potato with red lentil pasta and kale salad.
  • Bedtime snack: Two pieces of Ezekiel 4:9 flax bread, toasted, with almond butter and banana. He adds cinnamon and cocoa power. Apple.
  • Drinks: Green tea, almond milk or water.
The Colts say Whalen’s choices are paying off. “I feel a lot lighter, faster, quicker on the field. There isn’t that heavy feeling, that groggy feeling after I eat,” he says.
