Perhaps the two most important pillars of the FasCat Coaching ethos, following the plan and Winning in the Kitchen go very hand in hand. We’ve podcasted about them separately but realized that they fit together nicely, so we have a bit of a combo episode for you today to revisit these topics to keep you inspired as winter rages on. Winning in the Kitchen is about choosing go fast foods and setting the conscious intention to prioritize nutrition as part of you training – and sticking to that plan, just like #FtFP when it comes to training.

The origin of FtFP comes from our coaching experience and noticing bad training habits. #FtFP is having a training plan and following it. This is also where we got the expression “If you can follow a plan, you can get faster” – this is based on being able to FtFP:

  • Planning
  • Commitment
  • Sacrifice
  • Dedication
  • Vacations
  • Time Management
  • Life Balance
  • Having your ducks in a row
  • Having the mindset you are going to follow the plan come hell or high water

Not #FtFP’ing:

Very rarely does anyone miss a workout intentionally. It’s the details of what they do/don’t during that workout – Missing 15 minutes of a workout here, or not having your ducks in a row there. Great example is of a new training tip from Coach Isaiah “Know your zones” https://fascatcoaching.com/tips/know-your-zones/

Winning in the Kitchen Recipes:

General Tso’s Tofu – amazing and doesn’t take that long! This recipe comes from a google search arriving at https://veganhuggs.com/general-tsos-tofu/

Vegan Mac n Cheese inspired by: https://minimalistbaker.com/vegan-green-chili-mac-n-cheese/

Enjoyed the episode. My hack for muesli is to buy the ingredients (rolled oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut) that I enjoy from the bulk bins at WF, and then mix them up in a big tupperware container at home. That way, I know (generally) what went into the mix.

I’ve also been using the slow cooker to make steel cut oats overnight…and then storing leftovers in the fridge. It travels well to races in a cooler, and I’ve found the fiber doesn’t bother me if I eat it more than 90 minutes from the start.

Here’s my go-to recipe for a “take it to the next level” version (also works in the instant pot): https://www.apexnutritionllc.com/fuelrightblog/2015/12/24/thursdays-healthy-fuel-recipe-overnight-slow-cooker-protein-oatmeal/
