Today's run was "5 miles easy". While the food I choose is really important everyday, i try and pay a bit more attention on lighter days since I'm completely starved on heavy mileage days and often times I'm eating much higher sugar and carbs than i necesarily would otherwise.
I try and focus my meals on quality protein, high fiber, and fresh whole foods.
In between my run and The Bar Method class was breakfast so I chose a smoothie that would keep me full and be easily digested. I kept it low in sugar by using avocado in place of a frozen banana.
1 scoop Vega One Coconut Almond
1/2 frozen avocado
1 chunk frozen fennel
1 tsp matcha powder
almond milk & ice
