For breakast, I had one of these muffins: Almond butter, honey, banana, brown eggs and hemp seeds topped with raw cacao nibs. I also had organic, fair trade expresso coffee to go along with it
For lunch, I had a brown rice tapioca tortilla filled with my banana/almond butter cacao creation
Homemade fresh organic kale chips made for the first time...they were oh so good!
I decided to wash it down with 'Baby's first greens"
1 organic cucumber
1 organic pear
1 organic green apple
4 stalks organic kale
2 cups organic pineapple
My non raw dinner: organic free range, vegetarian fed bbq chicken (cooked in crock pot all day)
baked potato with low fat sour crem
organic spinach leaves with blueberries, bleu cheese, walnut halves, drizzled with olive oil
Tonight is Biggest Loser, so I am finishing the day off with superfood ice cream as I watch it. (frozen banana, strawberry, raspberries, Kefir, coconut oil and raw cacao nibs) I made it up so we will see how it goes
Did I get adequate nutrition for someone who is training for a half marathon? In fairness, I didnt run yesterday or today. I am taking a break to see if it helps my legs. I was itching to work out today but resisted. I read an interesting post on plant based foods and athletes today on http://www.choosingraw.com/ Check it out and let me know what you think. To me, my day looks well rounded. I had far enough fruit, volumes of veggies, dashes of dairy, perfect amount of protein (if not more), complete with complex carbohydrates. This is what most of my eating days look like. (minus the baked potato..thats a new addition)What do you think?
