But that’s getting ahead of things a little bit because Isles is keeping his mind on the regular season for now. We recently spoke to him about his approach to training, staying injury-free, and how he fuels his body for such vigorous efforts on the field. Because food is so important, he regularly reaches for recipes from the Almond Board of California, one of his sponsors. The following is an edited version of our conversation, plus one of his favorite recipes for an on-the-go snack.
About the Almond Board
Almonds from California are a natural, wholesome and quality food. The Almond Board of California promotes almonds through its research-based approach to all aspects of marketing, farming and production on behalf of the more than 6,000 almond growers and processors in California, many of whom are multi-generational family operations. Established in 1950 and based in Modesto, California, the Almond Board of California is a non-profit organization that administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture.
