My husband’s race-day plant fuel

Pre-race AM: Oatmeal breakfast packed with nuts, seeds & raisins (however much he can choke down)

Plant fuel during the race: Fruit–Chopped apple & orange slices he grabs out of his back pockets (kinda hard on a mtn bike race…). Pitted dates also work. 

Rice/Raisin/Almond Butter Balls (for longer races/rides):   

OR my Chocolate Walnut Brownies: 

  1 heaping cup raw walnuts (1 1/4), 1 TBS hemp seeds, 2 heaping TBS Oats, 2-3 TBS cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder), & 8 pitted Medjool dates. Process in a food processor until a brownie texture forms. Transfer mixture onto a parchment-lined plate or baking pan. Place in fridge for at least an hour before cutting into squares. Stores in freezer about a month. 

Post-Race Smoothie: Great to store in a stainless steel container to enjoy within an hour after a race or hard workout:

  18-oz post-workout smoothie: 1 cup soymilk, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 TBS hemp seed, 1 spoonful almond butter, 1 ripe banana, handful of spinach & 4-5 frozen strawberries (or 1/4 c mixed berries). Blend until smooth & enjoy!
