So I already shared my half marathon race recap in my Vegan Almond Joy Brownie Bite recipe post, but today I want to share with you how I fueled the day before the race.
I didn’t eat too differently from my usual way of eating, but I decided not to eat any raw vegetables (or many cooked vegetables for that matter) and I stuck to simple carbs. These foods seem to digest really quickly which is exactly what I was looking for!
I’d love to know what you all like to eat before a big endurance event, so let me know in the comments below!
Breakfast was 2 slices of my Homemade Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread–one with peanut butter, banana and cacao nibs and one with smashed avocado, nutritional yeast, black pepper and sea salt.
Lunch was my current favorite Healthy Chocolate Baked Oatmeal with sliced banana and my pumpkin chocolate mousse. This meal always makes me feel perfectly full and satisfied. I also love that this Healthy Chocolate Baked Oatmeal is sweetened with a ripe banana and even has a serving of vegetables hidden in it!
Dinner was steamed white rice, a baked sweet potato and another current obsession: Tamari Baked Tofu. I also had some bread and plain pasta at the pasta party my friend was hosting.
These meals digested really well, tasted amazing and made me happy. They also most importantly fueled me well for my half marathon which you can read all about HERE!
