Rest, Food & Putzing
Tonight was a night off the bike. Tuesdays & Friday's Wifey usually takes a class at da Club, so it was just me, the B-Man, some Ben 10 guy playing and some dinner making.
I rocked a super tasty Whole Wheat Pasta Turkey Sausage/Vegetable/Stir Fry tonight. Mmmmm, it rocked:
- 3 Cups Whole Wheat Penne (measured dry)
- 1 Cup Sliced Red Pepper
- 1 Cup Sliced Green Pepper
- 1 Cup Sliced Mushrooms
- 1 Medium Sliced Onion
- 1 Tablespoon E.V.O.O.
- 1 Link of Hot Turkey Sausage (sliced open & crumbled)
- 1/4 Cup Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 to 3 Tsp. of Minced Garlic
- Dash or 6 Hot Red Pepper Flakes
- Dash or 2 of Kosher Salt
- Dash or 5 of Black Pepper
- Cook it all up. Shove in Pie Hole.
Entire Meal (Serves 2 or 1 of Me): 1325 Calories, 34g Fat (very little saturated), 199g Carbs. 28g Fiber, 56g Protein. Calories and fat could be cut by eliminating the 1/4 cheese, ditching the turkey sausage and/or cutting back the pasta amounts. You could also add some veggies like some diced zucchini, egg plant or squash too. This meal rocks your glycogen storage and rips the colon.
That little gem put me at a total of 62g of fiber on the day. And even though I stuffed my face, I still came in under my caloric goal for the day. Not to mention after one cup of coffee in the a.m., most of this meal will be seeing the light of day again via the rear exit. Even Steven baby! I also had a kick ass breakfast that was a 3 egg white/mushroom/spinach omelet, with some whole wheat toast. Oh yeah I was rockin' the kitchen today.
Oh well, enough putzing and blathering about things that aren't really even remotely to do with bike racing. Time to read my new copy of Hammer Endurance News (download PDF version HERE), get some sleep and ready myself for the joy that is Wednesday at work.
