I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s guest post regarding tune up races. Laura really is the greatest for explaining the running stuff.
If you don’t already read Laura’s blog, she actually shared a wonderful post last week about how she is making sure she eats enough during her marathon training. I think this is why I love her so much — she often talks about how to eat enough, rather than about how to run on as little food as possible.
While training with Laura for my upcoming half marathon, I have definitely looked to her as an example and reminder to eat even more than I usually do. My additions are often subtle but my body notices – larger sweet potatoes, extra oatmeal, more bananas plus eggs and extra slices of avocado — these foods have helped me to feel more satisfied while increasing the intensity of my mileage.
Some recent meals from the last few days….
Oatmeal with egg whites, Skoop B-Strong, frozen blueberries and cinnamon.
I don’t go through peanut butter as often as I did so oats in a jar are a special occasion. Cold oatmeal mixed with Skoop B-Strong, blueberries and peanut butter. A splash of almond milk too.
Skoop B-Strong (the best plant-based protein powder ever) is currently 25% off — Use code STRONG25 at checkout (valid through April 30).
This egg sandwich is a favorite of mine. I cooked a quick spinach and onion omelette and placed it between super toasted cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread with mashed avocado.
Same type of quick omelette as the above only this time with roasted sweet potato wedges and avocado on top.
Even though I can make my own whole wheat vegetable pizza, I still like to go out to the pizza place. We love Villa Monte for their specialty pies including their incredible veggie-loaded whole wheat slice.
Giant greek salads from the Premier diner are my favorite. I ordered this greek salad with avocado.
Surprisingly, I haven’t one picture of dessert. After last week’s need for a brownie sundae, I settled right back in to my usual night-time apple with some peanut butter. Wait — I did have my typical cup of Cold Stone Saturday night but I didn’t take a picture —which sort of makes it feel like it didn’t even happen.
Islanders playoff game tonight! Getting excited 🙂recent eats #wiaw #oatmeal #halfmarathontraining #runner #pizza @healthyskoop #fitlfuential Click To Tweet
