After a weekend of eating a lot of crap, I was ready to eat some healthy, well balanced meals.
Breakfast: I started my day with Peanut Butter, Banana and Honey Oatmeal, always a good one when I know I have a full morning ahead of me.
Lunch: After class and my first short intervals (4×400 at 5k pace) since the race I need a protein packed lunch. I made an egg white scramble with 2% american cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes and onions. A great recovery meal, also we don’t have a lot of food at the moment so I am really improvising.
Dinner: I made some amazing Pad Thai. Casey won’t eat this usually because of the peanuts in it (for some reason he doesn’t like them in this particular dish) so when I make it at home I just leave them out and he LOOOVES it!
It feels so good to get back to eating well after a few days. As much as I enjoy eating the “crap” food, I certainly do not enjoy how it makes me feel!
