Woohoo! It's #foodiefriday and we are so excited for the weekend. Tomorrow is Coach Nick's Femme-Fatale-a-Thon. He is doing 21 CrossFit "Girls" in 24 hours to raise funds for three outstanding local non-profits, Warriors and Quiet Waters, Heart of the Valley and Haven. You can join him in the gym, at your own gym, or in spirit through a donation.
âWhat are we going to eat during this 24 hour CrossFit endurance event? When I say we I mean Nick and me, as I plan to join him for all 24 hours.
The first rule of eating during a long event, don't eat anything new. Stick with foods you know agree with your digestive system.
Don't eat too much at one time. We are basically doing a workout every hour and a great big meal will be difficult to digest.
Eat carbohydrates. We will be using glycogen as our primary fuel source and we need to refuel with simple carbohydrates that we know we can tolerate well.
What will we eat when we're finished? Anything we damn well please. Actually, that's not exactly true. My focus will be on more protein and less carbs as I want to ensure my body starts repairing itself when I sleep.
Here are 4 recipes for an excellent refueling meal that I will use this weekend.
