Athlete Food: Training Camp

For the last week or so, I've been in Clermont, Florida training with fellow pro triathlete and mom, Sarah Haskins. We've been putting in some great training hours and some fun baby playing hours - Sarah's six month old and Amy could not be happier together. 

Although this wasn't an official training camp, we organized our meals as if it was - alternating cooks each night. This method works out well because after a hard day of training, it's a nice treat to have dinner cooked for you - even if it means having to cook dinner another night. We've been eating/fixing meals that are both easy to prepare and packed with nutrients to fuel big days. Here's a look at our menu for the week:

Breakfast 

Oatmeal with fresh fruit (persimmons, bananas, cherries)

coffee or tea

Lunch 

rice cake sandwich (melted cheese and turkey or PBJ)

or cooked rice and vegetables

Snacks 

Mamzie' banana carrot bread

fresh picked oranges
