Today is Kiwi Cotter's birthday.He's not a fan of birthdays.好，not his own.我叫他生日便条。He thinks he's getting old (in triathlon years),but I beg to differ.I like to think he is aging like fine wine..bolder and smoother with the years,yes?YES!你说什么？
Anyway,这个周末他又参加了一个小型比赛，由于病毒感染，他在过去几周错过了很多训练，他决定通过训练，meaning he won't be tapering.He also needs lots of good fuel and recovery food to boost his immunity,尤其是在这之后上周末的比赛和惨败.This means the birthday Mexican feast is postponed,but that does not mean good food won't be had.
本周我们将重点放在不含乳制品和麸质的食物上，这样他就能最大限度地摄取营养。Now don't get me wrong,we love our yogurts,凯菲尔，etc.and we still have them in the fridge,but when intensity is higher therefore making recovery more crucial,we tweak his diet a bit.这使得更多的营养吸收，更强的免疫力，and hopefully a decrease in inflammation.
Here's a great article from another pro aboutGF pre race diet.
So more eggs,GF oats,fruit,greens,种子/坚果，有机牛肉，fish,and dairy free protein smoothies.I like to add in more omega oils in the smoothies as well.
Steak,草莓，and Nut Salad.
Dairy Free/Gluten Free Mac and Chick Peas.是的，这是他的生日餐。You must try it too!I promise you will not know be disappointed!你说什么？
Kiwi Cotter's favorite allergy friendly recipe
- 无奶奶酪丝（1/2杯）-素食，Almond/cashew Cheese,或者戴雅很好用。
- 1 can chick peas
- 1 jar pimentos
- garlic- 1 to 2 tsp.
- sea salt and black pepper- to taste
- Optional: diced chicken,tofu,tempeh,or beef
First,把豌豆放干。Coat them in 1 tbsp.oil and curry powder.铺在烤盘上，在400华氏度下烤15分钟或直到金黄色。Set aside.然后按照说明做意大利面。Strain the water and add it the milk,cheese,oil,and seasoning.Stir on low until cheese starts to melt.Once its starts to melt,add in your chick peas and pimentos until all the cheese is melted and coated onto the pasta and chick peas.
Do you change the foods you eat during training or before a race?是吗？
