What I Ate Wednesday #16

Happy Wednesday! We are officially at the half way point of the week, which means it’s time to oogle over some great food pics! Well, maybe oogle over some other people’s great food pics because mine are getting pretty boring! My diet isn’t changing all that much because I am trying to keep my meals pretty consistent.Β  I don’t want any stomach issues before the race! So I apologize in advance if I bore you today!Β  Today my diet will be switching over to about 60% carbohydrates, which is like culture shock to me! I will be eating a ton of veggies, sweet potatoes and fruit. (Today’s pics are from yesterday). In the past I have always used brown rice as my primary source of carbohydrates to fuel before a race, but this time I didn’t have any rice, pasta, bread, etc. My runs felt much better than any other time I have trained, which is great! However, I am a bit nervous to see how this new nutrition plans works for me this time! I guess we will see!

Also, just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the last day before my site officially switches over to self hosted! So for all my blog follows who are currently subscribed to my RSS Feed (automatic daily updates), you will have to re-subscribe on Friday! I apologize in advance for any inconvenience and I hope you continue to follow me! πŸ™‚ Any questions, feel free to let me know!

Now, onto my eats from yesterday!

Meal #1

I started my day with this little coconut cacao recipe that will be gracing the pages of the blog soon! πŸ˜‰

Meal #2

Next up was this totally delicious eggwhite ‘wrap’ stuffed with 2tbs of Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter and a banana. Plus some sweetened ricotta!

Meal #3

Oven roasted Brussels Sprouts with steamed cauliflower and a hemp/pizza turkey burger…..OMG!! Delicious!!!

Meal #4

One of my favorite snacks ever…Siggi’s pomegranite/passion fruit yogurt and raw almonds!

Meal #5

A salad the size of my head! Butter lettuce, carrots, tomato, tons of avocado, roasted squash, ricotta, lean beef (need the iron before the run), portobello mushrooms and diced sweet potato! Totally random, but mighty delicious! πŸ™‚

Meal #6

An Olympus size chocolate hemp mug brownie drowned in flaked coconut! Yup, a little excessive, but I am ‘calorie loading’ before the race πŸ˜‰

**************************************************************

This month we are also talking about our healthy habits! Mine has been making sure to maintain balance in my life. I have been pretty good overall, but I think my baking might be going a bit into overdrive ;)! However, I think that is mostly due to nerves of the upcoming race! I also have yet to get to Barnes and Noble to find a book to just sit down and enjoy, but I am hoping next week when I have more time I will be able squeeze that in!

*************************************************************

  1. Your meals = boring? NU UH! In what alternate universe?! lol! πŸ˜‰
    I’m loving your meals, especially that chocolate hemp mug brownie!! All of that coconut is making me drool… πŸ˜€

  2. Oh, meant to also ask for your Hemp/Pizza Turkey Burger recipe!

  3. Would love your chocolate hemp brownie recipe!

  4. That egg white thing looks awesome! I’m going to have to try that!

    • Oooooo!! Yes! You will LOVE IT!!! It’s amazing with peanut butter in it too!! It’s the perfect combination of protein, healthy fats and clean carbohydrates. Let me know how you like it!

  5. I WANT THE EGG WHITE WRAP! That is all πŸ˜€ hhaha
    I think it’s so great you’re finding more balance in your life, even if baking has dominated your thoughts. For the record, I have absolutely NO PROBLEM with that one, and neither do my tastebuds heehee πŸ˜‰ I made your pb&j pancakes the other morning and hot diggity dang were they delicious! πŸ˜€
    PS– You’re gonna freakin own your race girl, you’ve been training so hard! I cannot wait to hear about it!!!!!

    • Awww….Thanks girl! You are too sweet! I hope so, however the predicted weather as of now is 45 degrees and raining…not exactly what I had planned on! I am hoping it changes!! And I am glad you liked the pancakes!! I love anything pb&j…quest bar?! πŸ™‚ And yes, the recipes have been pouring out….I can’t even keep up anymore!! I need someone to come eat some of this stuff, game?! πŸ™‚

  6. Still love the idea of slipping hemp seeds into burgers! And all these eats look delicious, of course. I like your “boring,” haha.

  7. Yum! The mug brownie looks delish! I’ve done a handful of half marathons and lots 5k’s and 10k’s. I think I always get a little anxious before a half marathon but was only really nervous before my first one. I would really like to do a Rock N Roll half and was looking at the Las Vegas one but it’s at night… hmmm… not sure how I feel about that. I like doing them first thing in the morning.

    • OH MY GOODNESS!!! That is sooo funny! My boyfriend and I were just talking about doing The Vegas Race a few nights ago, but I feel the same way! I am a morning runner…and I live on the east coast, so it would be like me running at 11pm!! hahaha I did one the Nike 10k in L.A. at night when I lived there and it was awesome, but it was only 6 miles, so it wasn’t too bad! But a half marathon at night on my time change might kill me! I will see…and if I decide to race it, I will definitely let you know! You should consider it either way! Rock N Roll Marathons are by far the best!!! And the excitement of a night race doesn’t compare to anything else! πŸ™‚

  8. Thank you for reminding me just how delicious egg whites + pb + bananas are!

    I’ve run half marathons, and yes i’ve had nerves everytime! I just registered for my first marathon (rock n roll dc marathon) in march, and cannot wait!!
