Healthy recipes for Marathorners, Athletes, Triathletes
Runners, Triathletes or any endurance athletes require to eat correctly and i would say that all the recipes here are good for even a non athlete. The basics here are that most of these recipes are high in good fat, medium protein levels and low in carbs. All the ingredients used in the recipes are fabulous to maintain a long term healthy life style. Eg you will see the use of coconut milk, full fat yogurt, feta cheese, almond milk etc. For salads try Chick Pea, Mushroom and Barley Salad with Balsamic Dressing. For dips try Avocado and Feta Mash. For smoothies try Papaya and Green Apple Smoothie.
Athletes require energy and that is derived from good fats like full fat yogurt, almond butter, coconut oil etc. Good fat keeps you fuller for longer and helps you have the correct fat stores to tap into whether you are exercising for 1 hour or doing an ironman race which can take upto 17 hours.
For soups try Nourishing Barley Soup. For healthy vegetables try Paneer Capsicum Stir-fry
