Thursday’s Snack

Put together a snack mix following Elie Krieger’s recommendation of 2:1, nuts and seeds: dried fruit. Used raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, raw almonds, salted/toasted pistachios, dried figs, golden raisins, dried cranberries (sweetened with sugar), and banana chips (sweetened with sugar).

And then divided it into 1/3 cup serving sizes, perfect to grab on the way out the door.

This was the perfect fuel for my 3 miler today. That’s right. Three miles! Granted, it was very slow. And I didn’t know you could get a side stitch walking a 20 min/mile pace. But I did sprint a stretch (though I’m using the term sprint very loosely), and I know I’m going to be extremely sore tomorrow. This body is a lot weaker than my mind at this point. I’ll need to be careful not to push too hard. But it felt really really good to be moving again.

This was additional fuel on our “run.”

That’d be a peach.

I also had some leftover green juice from yesterday, several cups of tea (green, cinnamon, and chai with rice milk), and some additional figs and cashews.
