Half Ironman Race Week Nutrition-Part 1
Well, I can’t say that it’s the perfect diet and I can’t say that I’m in any way a nutritionist, but here are some things I have eaten during this race week.
Monday: Breakfast- two eggs and ground turkey and a side bowl of cereal with skim milk. Lunch: tuna packet and baked beans with some carrots and celery on the side. Snack- chocolate milk and a protein bar. Dinner- bbq ribs, broccoli and a wedge salad with ranch. THEN we went to the movies and I did have some sour patch kids 🙂
Tuesday: Breakfast- Bagel with cream cheese on one half and peanut butter on the other with a banana on the side. Lunch- grilled chicken with yellow and orange peppers and a small spoonful of pesto. Finished lunch with a small cup-sized bowl of vanilla ice cream. Snack- protein bar and greek yogurt. Dinner- grilled chicken with peppers and pesto this time adding a cup of bowtie pasta.
So, again I’m not perfect at all and I’m not in any way a nutritionist, but I do love food!!! Stay tuned for Part 2 which will be night before and day of the race!
