So what are Chocolate Protein BR Crispies & Oats? Just as you read it. I take 1.5 cups of brown rice crispies (unsweetened) cereal and mix into a bowl with 1/2 cup oats. Pour boiling water over them and let them sit covered for 5 minutes. The crispies and the oats combine (you can still hear the crackle and pop, haha) and make a really big bowl of goodness. Then I add a bit of almond milk, chocolate whey protein, and strawberries. More food, a little more protein/less carbs since he's not doing massive amount of training this week. See....check it.
Now onto side dish deliciousness..............
Thanks to Angela, I tweaked a recipe that called for Parsnips and made some good 'ol Parsnip fries. Now, we love our sweet potatoes but thought I'd give the parsnips a shot. Good thing I did because they were awesome!
3 parsnips cut into pieces
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
1tbp sun nut butter (you can also use almond or cashew butter).
spice!!- we used an African spice mix but you can use chili pepper, cayenne, cumin, etc.
Toss in a bowl and coat evenly. Bake at 400F for 20-25min. Turn them once. I also broiled them the last 3 minutes for extra crispiness, see!
Anyway, once taper week is over we'll be back to denser training foods and I know the hubs will definitely be downing a pizza and beer right after the race! Kinda a tradition. Hey, everything in moderation, right?!?!
Do you have any taper foods? Whats your favorite post race food. I always crave orange slices right afterwards and then definitely something salty, like pizza or anything with MEAT! Need to replenish that sodium .
Alright, off to make some dinner.
