Ever wonder what highly tuned athletes like me eat? NOTE: I’m not highly tuned and I don’t eat that well! However, I do love to cook and discover new recipes. The Thug Kitchen cookbook has recently come into my life as well as the Paprika app so I’m excited to post a bunch of cool stuff here in 2017.
I have to say, I do eat a lot of curry and middle eastern food because they tend to make a lot of vegetarian dishes. However, I’m breaking from my vegetarianism to move more towards a “cheating vegetarian.” Basically, I’m eating high protein in the morning that includes eggs and bacon, but I eat vegetarian the rest of the day. I will cheat with some fish (salmon only) and sometimes eat a burger without the bun and a side of steamed vegetables.
These diet choices will only last for a couple of months though. I will move back into full-time vegetarian once I’ve dropped the weight I want for my races this year. I’ve found that high-protein/low-carb works best for me. I’m not talking about cutting out all carbs, just reducing them exponentially.
Anyway, click here for all the food posts!
