WIAW <—- Race Week Edition

Happy Wednesday, and more specifically, Happy What I Ate Wednesday 🙂

WIAWbutton

As always, this huge, AWESOME link up is hosted by the wonderful Jenn at peas and crayons.

For this week, I am using the theme What I Ate:  Race Week.  While my stomach is a bunch of nerves the week before a race, I also try and eat VERY simply and balanced.  No soda or alcohol, sess processed foods, more easy to digest, tummy friendly, healthy carb filled delicious grub.

Let’s check out how successful I was this week 🙂

Breakfasts

My breakfasts during the week were a lot of fresh fruit, granola and unprocessed (aka expensive but totally worth it) yogurts.  This meal is my normal go to jump start to a healthy day, and it worked well for me race week.  I did up my granola intake, but justified it with the carbo loading.

for my weekend breakfasts, I went for my favorite carb heavy meals.  Cinnamon crunch bagels, apple crunch pastries, the good stuff :). All in the name of racing, of course.

Lunches/Snacks

I don’t eat many “real” lunches through the work day, and tend to snack my way through.  The week before the race, it was a lot of NUUN, trail mix, granola, and high in carbohydrate, simple snacks.  My favorite was probably that edemame hummus up there.  Delish!

Dinners

I ate more sandwiches than I care to admit the week before the race. Normally with a side of very simple greens and chex mix.  Hey, it worked for me.  I did also manage to squeeze in some other, more “real” meals, including sushi, cobb salad and pasta. Yum

Treats

I made an apple pie while Zach was traveling, and ate that UP during the week leading up to the race. Lots of healthy carbs in that one, right?  😉

And that, my friends, is what I ate for the Race week.

Thank you again, to Jenn, for hosting!!

Question of the afternoon:  Share your favorite eat of the past week.

Probably that darn apple pie.  YUM.
