Heyya guys! Wednesday is one of my favorite days in the blogging world because a lot of us celebrate What I Ate Wednesday and share endless amounts of food! I love finding new ideas for meals or snacks and just love seeing what concoctions people come up with.
For today’s post, I thought I would share with you what I ate on Saturday, which was a training run for me!
1/2 cup Whole Foods Organic rolled oats with 1 tbsp Jif Whips Peanut Butter. This meal was awesome, filling, and the oats were so chewy! It was also just the perfect amount of peanut butter!
Since I had plans to attend a BBQ shortly after my run, I made a protein shake, but only used half of the normal ingredients. Frozen strawberries, almond milk & Syntha-6 Isolate Vanilla Ice Cream. My favorite!
A little bit later, I dug into an afternoon snack with the girls at the bbq. Pub cheese (THE BEST) & Ritz crackers. I had maybe 8 crackers, 6 with cheese.
And then it was time to dig into the BBQ food!
I grabbed two pieces of a chicken, a tiny piece of steak, and salad. This was more like an early dinner, so it kept me full from about 4 until 9:30.
My stomach was finally grumbling around 9:30, so I dug into a tuna wrap that I had brought with me. I love how this wrap has so much to it, which means some bites are extra-doughy.
And since I was far off from my macros, I ate a protein bar before bed, trying my best to get as close to my macros as possible. It’s hard when you’re only home for 1 1/2 meals of the day!
My meals and snacks could have definitely been better, but given the circumstances (being away), it is what it is! I can’t wait to experiment more with pre-run foods!
What’s your go-to meal to eat before a run?
