DALLAS – Skylar Diggins of the Dallas Wings is a lot of things. A beast on the court, a beauty, and an active figure in the Dallas Fort Worth community. But what a lot of people don't know is that she's just as talented in the kitchen – and it all stems from making lemonade out of life's lemons.
"I tore my ACL in 2015, and I was battling back, and I was really just trying to get my body right and get ready for the season,” Diggins told NewsFix. “And I really got focused on other things. I had to pick up hobbies since I wasn't hoopin' so I tried to get in the kitchen and learn how to cook for myself."
And now – day in and day out – Diggins looks to herself to make sure she's fueling her body accordingly.
"As I continue to learn about food and cooking, I learn about myself and my body and what I need,” Diggins said.
And what she needs are quick and easy meals. Like omelets and street tacos and, of course, salmon (get Skylar's recipe here).
As for where she gets her recipes...
"It's a lot of cool Instagram pages and things like that I follow,” Diggins told NewsFix. “Pinterest. And I get my recipes from everywhere. Trial and error. “
"My body is what I use; it's a big part of the job,” Diggins said. “It's my career. This is a big year for us and the Dallas Wings. This will be our second year in Dallas and I'm so excited about the season. I just want to be a big part of that and make sure that I'm ready and I'm healthy."
Whether it's in the kitchen or on the court – when it comes Diggins – the sky is the limit!
