My husband is at the peak of his training for his pinnacle race of the year, Ironman World Championships in Kona; which means less: carbs, sugar, alcholol and healthier meals with more protein on their way to our casa. We also made a goal to only drink twice a week and have one dessert (this starts tomorrow); wish me luck!
I thought I would share our menu for this week.
My husband has oatmeal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a touch of maple syrup. I will be having acai bowls (acai brand link below) topped with: bananas, whatever berries are on sale at the grocery store, sweetened flakes of coconut and super seed blend from Trader Joes (link below). We also drink coffee: my husband has two cups of black coffee with a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk & I have two cups of black coffee with two pumps of vanilla syrup.
