Supplemental Nutrition

When having a well balanced diet, 3 meals a day rich in variety and solid nutritional choices, still leaves runners teetering on empty.  These two options should never be considered meals in and of themselves, but a supplement to keep blood sugar levels equal to the energy demands when running volume surpasses 15-25 miles per week.  

The Evening Shake:  Ice cream, milk, 2-3 ice cubes, 1 packet Carnation instant breakfast, banana or handful of other fruit, 1 blob of peanut butter or 1 scoop whey protein (either choice gives adequate protein.) Blend into creamy ice cream shake.

The Morning Smoothie: THIS WOULD BE AFTER HAVING AN ALREADY SOLID BREAKFAST.

1 yogurt cup of any flavor yogurt, 1 cup milk, 2-3 ice cubes, 2 tablespoons frozen OJ concentrate, fruit of choice. Optional: a little bit of honey……blend and enjoy!!
