Now that I am back to marathon training I am trying to be more aware of what I am eating and how it makes me feel. Over the past year I learned about paleo and did a Whole30 but I don’t eat paleo 100% all the time. I try to focus on eating unprocessed, natural foods but it doesn’t always happen. I do notice that certain foods bother me if I eat them too much, so I think it will be important to pay attention to the foods I am eating since I got pretty lax about it while I wasn’t training.
My first day of training started with the usual coffee/banana/water combo.
After my run I grabbed some nuun and heated up a frittata. This was alot like the bacon and sweet potato frittata I shared a few weeks ago but instead of mixing it all up I cooked it in layers so it basically had a bacon crust.
Morning snacks at work were berries and oatmeal blueberry chocolate chip muffins.
Lunch was leftovers…On Sunday night I made this sundried tomato and spinach pasta bake. I added ground turkey and only used mozzarella instead of all the recommended types of cheese.
We are running low on Lararbars (waiting for our amazon prime shipment) so I ate a Clif bar instead on my way home from work.
Dinner was meatloaf using this recipe: Beast Meatloaf with veggies and baked potatoes on the side.
Dessert was some dark chocolate and some of Michele’s fudge that I attempted to make over the weekend- however, I must have made it wrong because it didn’t really stick together. I guess I’m bad at following directions and all it involved was mixing things in a bowl… It still tasted delicious even if it didn’t look very pretty!
Do you ever mess up really simple recipes?
Do you eat differently when you are training for a race/running more?
