I run ultras, and I've been eating as a veggie and then vegan up to this point, toyed with raw on and off, but now fully committed to it. On my ultras (I run from 26-36 milers most weekends, and 50-100 milers 6+ times a year) I used to eat porridge for brekkie and take vegan biscuits and crisps with me, washed down with soya milk......
Now I am committing to 80/10/10rv, what would you suggest I take?
I was thinking of a huge banana fest for breakfast, possibly made into a smoothie with some celery, and taking a few bananas, clementines, dates and a couple of smoothies with me. But as I will need to carry all this (checkpoints don't generally have fruit available) I'm concerned at how I will sustain myself over 8, 12, 15, 24+ hours of running. The 100 milers I can stash food in advance, but not at any of the shorter ones.
I've seen 'Date-o-rade' mentioned here and was wondering if I could have the recipe? Any suggestions are MOST MOST welcome!
Thanks all! x
Cucumbers don't count Helen i'm afraid to say, they're a fruit whereas greens are leaves. Spinach is a good one because of its mild taste and juiciness, I literally can't get enough of it, mmmmm. If that doesn't work then green smoothies are the way forward.
Victor - 2 nights before a race I eat exactly what I usually eat, lots of fruit and greens. I wouldn't change anything before a race, that's a general rule no matter what diet you're on. Just make sure you're eating plenty of calories in the build up to race day. Go get em'
