A few weeks ago, I went to a seminar on Nutrition for Runners and the nutritionist that gave the seminar told us that anyone with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina health insurance is entitled to 6 FREE sessions of nutrition counseling a year! I had no idea about this, but I love nutrition, so I figured I’d set up a free appointment with the sports nutritionist who gave the seminar. One of the things she wants me to do is increase my calorie intake to a certain number. (That I won’t mention here because I don’t really like talking numbers on the blog)
ANYWAY, my WIAW post this week reflects me trying to meet my new caloric intake goal so I’ve tried to bulk up my meals a little more than usual! I’m not quite where my nutritionist recommends yet, because some of my disordered eating habits are still floating around in my head..but I’m getting there.
Breakfast: My favorite pumpkin protein pancakes topped with banana slices and pb2 sauce
Lunch: 2 egg + 1 egg white omelet with provolone cheese, spinach, and chicken. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to top it with salsa or ketchup- so I did half and half with an orange on the side for something sweet
Snack: Granny Smith apple + almond butter + string cheese
Dinner: Whole Wheat pasta + eggplant meatballs + TJ’s Marinara + Parmesan cheese
..And the picture I took somehow magically deleted itself. And that pasta is long gone by now-so use your imagination
Nighttime Snack: Peach Chobani + Kashi honey almond flax granola (LOVE this flavor!)
I’m off to run- 6 miles on the agenda today. This will be my longest run (on my own) to date! The only other time I’ve ran this distance was my 10K a few weeks ago..wish me luck!
