Joe Zanovich's Perfect Food Day

The man behind the popular annual Scottsdale Food Festival is Joe Zanovich. While he helps plan a weekend of gluttony for the rest of us as the executive director, he's an active, health-conscious guy -- even training for an Ironman race this November. When things have mellowed out at the office, he likes bike to work 11 miles each way about 3-4 times per week. In his downtime, he likes spending time with his fiance and boxer pup.

Here's his perfect food day:

Breakfast: Banana nut pancakes from Orange Table in Scottsdale. Those pancakes are just heavenly with bananas and pecans in the mix.

Lunch: The grass-fed bison burger from True Food Kitchen. This burger is healthy and delicious and with the sweet potato hash on the side it is perfect.

Honey Bear's BBQ

Dinner: My favorite food is BBQ and for me the perfect way to end the day is at Honey Bear's BBQ. I love their baby back ribs and pulled pork. Their BBQ sauce is near perfect and I seriously cannot get enough of that stuff.

Between meal snacks: Raw almonds, mandarin oranges, and protein bars.
