As you may have noticed from Wednesday’s post, the theme of the week was carbs: mostly potatoes and bananas/plantains. I included a night of pasta just to change things up. Everything was simple (no new meals/foods the week before the race) but some of the baking I did added a little time on in the kitchen.
Sunday: salmon, roasted red potatoes, spinach
Monday: bison burgers, sweet potato fries, mixed veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
Tuesday: pork chops, baked potatoes, asparagus
Wednesday: turkey meatballs, pasta, salad
Thursday: chicken, roasted red potatoes, broccoli
Friday: turkey burgers, sweet potatoes, green beans
Breakfasts: paleo chocolate chip muffins, eggs with bacon and veggies, smoothies
Lunches: salads with grilled chicken and steak, leftovers
Here is the prep I did:
-made cookie dough balls
-cut up broccoli
-cleaned and stored raspberries
-roasted sweet potatoes
-Rob grilled chicken on Sunday (unpictured)
How do you plan for your meals the week before a big race?
