Health Made Simple for Athletes, Day 23

Posted by admin on

Tuesday morning on the Health Made Simple whole foods-based meal plan started with you guessed it! a Larabar, a run (7 miles this time), and a bowl of post-run white rice.

And that was followed by Tuesday's meal plan breakfast of Sid's Superfood Shake, named for Sid Garza Hillman (who, along with No Meat Athlete's Matt Frazier, developed the Health Made Simple plan). I didn't have all the superfoods needed to make this (I was out of maca and have never owned chlorella), but I used what I had. This has banana, hemp seed, chia seed, dulse flakes, wheatgrass powder, spirulina powder (subbed for the chlorella), plus I added flax seed and chocolate protein powder (not in the recipe).

I was feeling great and full of whole foods when I got to work. But about 30 minutes after I arrived, I was surprised with VEGAN DONUTS! My co-worker Lily, owner of Darling Donuts, brought some into the office. I will ALWAYS make exception to my healthy eating goals for donuts! I had half a chocolate PB and half a cherry sprinkle.

I wasn't at all hungry for my morning snack, but I had a yoga class at 11 am, and I was worried that I might need some real fuel (not just donuts), so I ate my snack anyway Veggies & Cashew-Hemp Italian Dressing.

Lunch was leftover No-Chicken Noodle Soup (no pic, sorry!). And afternoon snack was a fruit bowl (pineapple, strawberry, blueberry). Enjoyed with a rare afternoon cup of coffee.

For dinner, I met up with my Memphis Vegan Drinks buds for beer and food at RP Tracks. I had considered getting the BBQ Tofu Nachos, but since I'd already gone donut crazy, I figured I'd go with a healthier option Chipotle Hummus Platter (plus a side of vegan ranch for dipping my veggies!), enjoyed with a 22-oz Meddlesome Brewing Co. Broadhammer Brown Ale.

I'm all about that balance, y'all!
