For some reason I just really wasn’t feeling having leftovers for dinner tonight so I saved my Thai chicken and brown rice for tomorrow’s lunch and instead had a super filling and tasty dinner of Wild Alaskan salmon burgers (from Whole Foods) on a Rudi’s whole wheat bun with a light laughing cow cheese, some broccoli and cucumber slices with 2 tbsp of hummus. The laughing cow with the salmon burger was a totally delicious combo that I had not tried yet and salmon always really fills me up because of all the healthy fats. I also had a square of organic dark chocolate for dessert (I have a square of dark chocolate after every dinner but never mention it because its a daily occurrence).
For a snack later I’m bringing a scoop of my chocolate protein powder (not the Dessert powder you see, my all natural one) with half soymilk/half water to mix with around 8:00 or whenever I start to get hungry again.
Tonight should be another early night for me unless (knock on wood) something goes drastically wrong with my yeast. I’m making the American Rye bread tonight along with a whole wheat fougasse. Two pretty simple formulas and I’m hoping to be home around 10:30 again. This is so much better than getting home at midnight every night!!
Thanks for all the great discussion regarding this morning’s question. My favorite pre-workout snack WAS a half a banana with pb but as I increased the time and intensity of my workouts, I am finding that I need a little something more. Today’s baguette with pb worked perfectly! I think the combo of bread and nut butter is always a winner and it really gets you through that cardio session and lunges session! Another great pre-workout snack, in my opinion, is half a cliff bar. I LOVE the chocolate chip peanut butter flavor. This was always my favorite pre-run snack when I was training for races last year.
