Health Made Simple for Athletes, Day 11

Another day, another morning run! Thursday — day 11 on the Health Made Simple meal plan — started with a 4-mile easy-pace run. But first, I fueled up with a Simple Truth Apple Cinnamon Date Bar. And then after the run, I had my usual bowl of White Rice with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds for re-fueling. My real breakfast — a Banana Walnut Smoothie (bananas, walnuts, protein powder, water) — followed a little later.

Morning snack was a fruit bowl — pineapples, blueberries, kiwi — with flax.

I had a lunch meeting at Next Door in Crosstown Concourse. They have a super-healthy and delicious Roasted Veggie Bowl with quinoa, roasted broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, and tahini sauce. A perfect fit for Health Made Simple!

In the afternoon, I snacked on some whole wheat Wasa crackers with almond butter, but I forgot to take a picture.

And then here's my awesome dinner! It was just a simple Tofu Veggie Stir-fry, but sometimes, those basic meals really hit the spot. The tofu is marinated in soy sauce, garlic powder, and maple and then air-fried. The veggies were sauteed with a soy-agave-garlic sauce. Served over brown rice!

I could live on 'just a simple tofu and veggie stir-fry' for the rest of my life!
