A Typical Training Day of Nell’s Paleo Meals
What does a typical day of eating #The Paleo DIet look like for you, both for a day when you are training, as well as when you have an off-day?
Following is a sample of what I might have during any given weekday with two workouts; I'll post an off-day sample on tomorrow's blog:
Pre workout Breakfast Smoothie- 8oz brewed, chilled, natural decaf green tea with a banana, egg white protein powder, almond butter whizzed in the blender with some baked yam on the side.
6:30 AM 3 hr bike ride on the trainer- carbohydrate gel taken every 25’
Immediate Post workout recovery drink- HOMEBREW (recipe in The Paleo Diet for Athletes) – cantaloupe, egg white protein powder and glucose
(Plenty of water- keep hydrating)
Raisins (to restore body alkalinity, continue to help the body recover post workout, and prepare for the session later in the day.)
11:30 or 12:00 PM
Grilled Chicken breast, Flash sautéed asparagus with drizzled with flax seed oil and an apple on the side
Natural unsweetened applesauce with chopped egg whites (to prepare for 2nd workout of the day- shift from the usual Paleolithic macronutrient ratio to the pre=workout focus on carbohydrate)
4:30PM 60’track workout- hard, fast intervals; gel taken immediately post as recovery
Banana (high glycemic fruit choice to, again, aid in recovery)
Poached wild salmon on a bed of steamed kale, mixed green salad, avocado & sliced strawberries, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a splash of cold-pressed extra virgin oil; sliced oranges on top.
