2013 weekly menu: week 19

nutella, strawberry and basil pizza
my menu this week has to follow a pre-race plan; protein load the first part of the week and carbo load the last part of the week.  it's hard to believe the race is this saturday.

i am looking forward to easing up on the running.  after 15 weeks of pushing myself on the trails, running 40 and 20 minutes will be a breeze. this week is about taking it easy, staying hydrated and fueling my body.  oh and staying mentally positive.

it almost seems like i'm cheating this week.  carbo loading means breakfast, lunch and dinner.  but that's one of the benefits of running, right?

weekend eats
saturday: dinner at a mexican restaurant
sunday: taco bar

making this week
monday: bbq salmon, sweet potato, roasted green beans
tuesday: chicken and rice casserole
wednesday: spaghetti and meatballs
thursday: rice and bean burrito
friday: eat out - pre-race dinner

keep the boys in your thoughts.  both of them are traveling today on school trips.  they are going to have an amazing time, but will be missed at home.

enjoy your week.
