If interested here’s my daily meal intake.
Bowl of Oatmeal w/brown sugar (to taste)
Coffee - Black
8oz of water
Vitamins - B12, MultiVit, C (I skip a day or two here and there to give my kidneys/liver a break)
45 min Gym - Weight Training
Sweet Potates cubed
Grilled veggies - Spinach, Red Onion, Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Mushrooms, Fresh Japs
Biscuit - Peanut and Jelly (vegan) spread
PB & J sandwich
Leftovers from Dinner or Salad consisting of these general ingredients - Always some variation of it
Fresh Peppers, Mushrooms, Hummus (great as a salad dressing), Cherry Tomatoes, Carrots Romaine, Kale (work this in somehow always), Avocado, Beans (black/kidney are my favs)
Spaghetti, Veggie Meatballs,
Quinoa (Superfood, awesome with any meal - PROTEIN heavy) mixed with the above ingredients is always good.
Tropical Smoothie w/ added Pea Protein - when I “treat myself”
PB &J or Sandwich made with Tofurkey and Diaya chz, Kale, Spinach, Romaine, Mixed Greens, Mustard
6:00pm (If not riding immediately after work/ if so then dinner is later 7:30/8pm)
Same as the lunch ingredient variations. We usually end up with leftovers so we utilize those rather than waste. Also saving $$. Cooking with my wife as a family has been great too. Learning what foods work together and what doesn’t has been great. I feel we have barely scratched the surface.
Post Ride snack
Pea Protein Shake
I go with water and the suggested scoop amount on the container
Green Tea or Chamomile tea before bed w/ Lemon
Drinking water throughout the day - 3L is my daily goal.
I do love some Cold Brew and Vanilla Almond Milk so I sometimes sip on that throughout the day.
During my rides
GUs are great for the small energy boosts
Peanuts (I snack on trail mix every day) Nuts are a must (allergy aside)
Sour Patch kids for sugar are good sweet tooth alternative
The cookies shaped like Peanuts w/ peanut butter in them are awesome lol
Water - 2 bottles (1 water / 1 with a Electrolyte tab)
I’m early on in my journey to be a well-oiled cycling machine lol but do enjoying sharing what is working for me.
I weigh on avg between 146lbs and 153lbs 5’11" 34 yrs old. That same fluctuation occurred while I was eating meat daily. I think it has more to do with water weight for me personally.
Hope this helps!!
