|Yes, that chicken is fried.|
|Doesn't this scream "help me"?|
I desperately need an intervention. I am headed back to my old ways and it's not a pretty place. I need to curb the afternoon sweets and late night snacking. I think the best way to do that is to eat sensibly throughout the day. I have a trip to Trader Joe's on the schedule for tomorrow. However, I need a shopping list. I need to know what I should be eating. When I moved from heavy (for me) weight training to a running focus, I got lost in the carbs. So much for my recommitting...
So, I am revisiting it. It all starts in the kitchen. According to Runner's World's August issue, I should be eating some "good for you" foods that I actually love like raspberries, eggplant and goat cheese (just to name a few). I am happy to go out and buy these foods. BUT every food cannot be string cheese and bananas. You cannot just grab an eggplant and take a bite. I need some easy go-to snacks and meals for marathon training. Please focus on "easy." I do not have time, energy or desire to even spend all day Sunday cooking in my itty-bitty kitchen.
Challenge: Can you please give me a simple recipe for a snack or meal that is good during marathon training? It can be as simple as "smear peanut butter on whole wheat bread" (now that one is taken though, okay?).
Incentive: I have the "Spirit of the Marathon" on DVD. I bought it and I watched it once and because it is Fall and I love pumpkin lattes, I'll throw one in as well. Just let me know if you prefer Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts.
Leave me a recipe or snack idea in the comments and "like" my Facebook page by Monday, 9/24/12 at noon (EDT) at noon and I will pick a winner at random.
