Recovery Day Fuel

By October 9, 2014Fitness, Fuel
Wednesday is currently my recovery day (no training).  This week, I decided to document what I ate how I fueled for sharing purposes.  Even though this was a “rest” day, my eating fueling was pretty typical of most training days, with the exception of pre/during workout fuel and hydration…
  • 4:55 a.m. wakeup
  • 5:05 a.m. 1 pc. Dave’s Killer Bread (this stuff is A.Mazing) toasted w/ TJ’s almond butter, homemade strawberry jam, & 1 banana, dusted with cinnamon
this is my “Breakfast of the Month” champ
  • 5:10 a.m. chai and pumpkin spice tea with a splash of 2% milk
  • 5:30-7:30 a.m. private coaching & nutrition sessions 
  • 6:30 a.m. 1 small Peets coffee, black (during nutrition session)
  • 8:30 a.m. smoothie with: 1 banana, 1/2 c. frozen raspberries, 1/2 c. plain yogurt, splash of pineapple juice, & 1t each flaxseed meal, wheat germ, and chia seeds
flax, wheat germ, and chia => omega 3s, protein, fiber, and vitamin E!
  • 9-3 work at home, coaching session follow-up, laundry, cleaning, reading & journaling
  • 10:45 a.m. repeat morning toast with almond butter, jam, banana, and cinnamon (got another toast craving…this happens often) with tea (I love fall herb teas!)
  • 12:31 p.m. 1 pan fried egg w/ salt & pepper + 2 cuties a handful of raw almonds
sometimes, you just want an egg…that’s it.
  • 2:33 p.m. another handful of almonds, and another cutie
  • 3:30-4 p.m. private coaching session
  • 4:30-7 pm. make/eat dinner, prep snacks/drinks for home group (church) meeting tonight at our place
  • 5:50 p.m. pumpkin soup (Trader Joe’s heat and serve…so easy) and pumpkin cornbread croutons (from a box) + mixed green salad with Tuscan Italian dressing, grated carrots, figs, pears, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and gorgonzola cheese crumbles
Eat pumpkin –> get your vitamin A –> Immune boost!
  • 7-9 p.m. home group meeting
  • 7-9 p.m. snacks! cherry-lime-mint water, decaf coffee, pumpkin spice tea, meringue cookie, blue corn chipssalsa.
That was fun!  
Fuel well to recover well,
