If you don't know, I'm training for a triathlon right now. On Sept 11th is the TriRock in San Diego, and I'll be racing the olympic distance triathlon. So, I'm on week 6/16 of my training plan that I put together. I'm running, biking, swimming, and working out several times a week. So far, this Engine 2 Diet has given me almost all the energy that I've needed to get through my days. I've only had to add a little snack here and there and when I do I am eating along the lines of the plan.
So yesterday, before my swim, I had 1/2 cup shredded wheat, with a tbsp of raisins. Not luxurious or anything, but it got the job done!
1400 cals (220g carbs, 20g fat, 54g protein, 31g carbs)
Had toast with applesauce spread on top - along with a sliced banana. I really liked the applesauce on my toast - I think this may be a real replacement for buttering for me!!
Had a pizza I made lastnight - it was really good - but it was only one pizza, so I brought along a potato to make it a little more of a lunch.
I was not sure about this one - I generally don't have just sliced tofu - it's usually mixed in with other stuff. But this actually turned out OK - I may do it again - although not a lot. The mashed potatoes were really good - but instead of swiss chard, we had Bybee Veggie Trio from Costco (green beans, carrots, corn). Very yummy and filling dinner!
Maple Sour Cream Dream (recipe from Whole Foods Facebook!)
This turned out really good - very creamy, and the raspberries were really good! Kids liked their regular-yogurt version of it - although our 6yo had cookies and cream instead of raspberries and cream. He did have to taste mine though - then of course wanted my dessert! As if!!
