With all this new moving to and living in Canmore stuff going on lately, I’ve been doing a lot more cooking than I had been doing while living at home (surprise surprise). With not too much blog-worthy stuff going on for me this last week, coupled with the fact that everybody likes good food (right everybody?), I am doing things differently for my blog post today. Today I will give you a typical culinary day in the life of Zeke–complete with recipes and entertaining dialog!! Watch out Master Chef!!
|Speaking of food… a fantabulous Omelette I made the other day! Got enough veggies?|
As a high-level endurance athlete, it is very important for me to spend a stupid amount of time eating, and, to be picky about what I am eating from a nutritional standpoint. Unfortunately (surprisingly?), for an athletic male of my age, I am really not a huge fan of eating (it’s kinda boring!). With these facts in mind, I choose recipes that don’t take too long to make and I like to keep stuff not too one-sided (for instance, I wouldn’t eat just chicken with curry sauce for supper). Just like in life, I try to go for variety.
But without further todo, I give you a typical day in the life of Zeke: from a food perspective!
-Just over 3/4C Water
-1/3C Quick Oats
-1-2 Tbs Brown Sugar
-Bit of Cinnamon
-3-4 Tbs Yogurt
Cut an Apple in half. Eat one Half; Chop up the other half.
Add brown sugar+cinnamon+yogurt+chopped apple to the oatmeal.
Eat the banana by itself.
Morning Workout: Eat 1 clif bar every hour if the workout is 2hrs or more. Drink 1 big waterbottle full of water+drinkmix for each 45min-1hr of workout.
1 Can Tuna
Pinch of Salt
Sprinkle of Pepper
1 Clove Garlic
1/2-1 Tbs Olive Oil
3/4 Tbs approx. Lemon Juice REALLLLEMON!!!! (said to the sound of the powerthirst guy saying “real lightning!! I do like real lemons)
A few green leaves
A few knives of butter
Smash the garlic clove and cut up the onion into squinkly-little pieces.
Drain can of tuna; take Tuna+Salt+Pepper+Garlic Clove+Onion+Olive Oil+LemonJuice and mix them up real good. Take the knives of butter and apply them to the bagels; put greens on your bagels; put your mixture of the above ingredients on the bagels. Cut up the tomato and put pieces of the tomato on your bagels. You’re done! Enjoy the savoury tast.
Eat the rest of the mixture with some green leaves.
Fry the egg with a knife of butter and eat it.
Nap: Nothing is eaten here.
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 1/2 or 1 1/4 cup of sugar
1/3 cup milk mixed with 2 teaspoons lemon juice (or buttermilk if you have it)
Pinch of salt
1tsp Baking Soda
1 3/4 C floor (I use half white half brown)
A squig of butter
Mash Bananas. Mix bananas with all the above (except Cream Cheese!!!!), in the order above. Use your squig of butter to butter a bread loaf pan. Pre-heat oven to 350; Place stuff in oven; cook at 350 for 30min; turn down to 325 after 30min time elapses and cook, checking every 5min, until you can stick a knife through the loaf and pull out the knife without stuff sticking to it. Cheers.
Cut a few pieces of the banana bread and eat it with Cream Cheese. Be happy.
Maybe eat some yogurt or nut mix too.
Afternoon Workout: Same deal as morning workout.
Reco (recovery) Drink:
4 Tbs CCC Chocolate Recovery Drink OR 3Tbs Powdered Milk (preferably whole milk powder)+a bit of sugar
3/4 tall glass of milk
Shake or Stir real well to mix. Either option is quite tasty.
Use $5 to purchase a small tub of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream from your local food place. Eat half of it and save the other half for a later date–best to keep it in the freezer unless you want an ice cream drink.
I eat desert first.
