Claim to Fame: He’s a midfielder for the Boston Cannons, Boston’s professional lacrosse team. Before that, he played for Ohio State University.

What He Ate: Oatmeal pancakes with a berry and Greek yogurt smoothie.

Why He Chose It: Buchanan turns to this meal on game day, when he needs energy to keep him playing his best. “The oatmeal pancakes are a Nancy Clark recipe. She’s a big sports nutritionist,” Buchanan explains. “The meal is packed with protein and carbs—high octane fuel for game day.”
