    What did you eat today?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I am genuinely interested in what other people eat on a daily basis-- especially here at a women's cycling forum! I want to know how people eat before big races and long rides. I'm curious to see what kind of spread we have here.

    I will start

    Today I ate:

    No breakfast That's a huge no-no, but I woke up late and didn't have time to grab anything before swimming this morning!

    Lunch:
    Gardenburger without the bun
    A heap of steamed broccoli
    Roasted cherry tomato salad
    A couple ounces of turkey on the side

    Dinner:
    A large bowl of brown rice with two eggs scrambled and delicious kimchi
    Glass of OJ

    Your day looks pretty much perfectly balanced-- nutrition-wise. I wish I had enough forethought to plan snacks, but I'm usually too busy to think about being hungry mid morning and mid afternoon.

    I can't take too much credit for that. DH packs me a big lunch box every day with all the snacks and good food to keep me away from the vending machines. I just open it and pull out snacks and eat. I'm a lucky ducky.

    Did everyone who posted so far cycle today?

    Last few days not normal at all food-wise ad cycling-wise, since I'm visiting family and friends. Cycling has been only 12-35 kms. daily. I normally ride 42 kms. daily back home in Vancouver.

    Since yesterday was a non-cycling day due to other activities with 2 sisters, I won't elaborate unusually diverse and filling meals, including 1 early dinner at Chinese restaurant where 3 of us shared 4 entrees.
    ___________________________

    But since you asked with curiosity for "longer" rides, recently 4 days ago as part of 35 kms. trip:

    Breakfast
    1 small bowl of cornflakes with skim milk (hey, it's my sister's home.)
    a fresh peach
    tea with skim milk

    Lunch (This is not normal for me. I barely have any lunch. I've improved over the years, at least a bigger breakast is a regular habit now.)
    1 slice of bread with 2 tblsp. of goat cheese
    tea with skim milk

    Supper (at my dearie's son's gastropub. he is chef/cook there, it was destination goal of our ride
    shared 1 large bowl of chilled minted melon and cucumber soup with dearie
    I had leek risotto with scallops, mushroom and tomato
    pineapple juice

    Came back where before 2 hrs. before went to bed, had plum and tea with milk.

    I swam for 45 minutes this morning (leisurely) and then rode about 15 miles this afternoon (also leisurely)

    Well, since I just signed up for the weightloss challenge, I'll fess up to my diet as well.

    BF Frosted bite size mini wheats with 2% milk.

    Snack, string cheese and almonds

    Lunch,3-4oz Roast beef on WW with light mayo and mustard.

    snack, 1 small cup(120 cal.) ice cream. almonds
    snack, 100 cal granola bar
    Dinner, tons of fresh green beans cooked with some sort of specialty sausage from costco.
    cup of 2% milk

    Oh yeah, a few mini reese's from my secret stash in my room that the kids don't know about. After these are gone I won't refill the stash. But I'm too weak to toss them out.

    Today I did week 5 day 3 of couch to 5K which is 8 min. jog, 5 min. walk, and 8 min jog. Tomorrow is my bike ride day.

    mini reese's are both the essence of evil and the essence of all that is good and right in the world.

    Two somewhat-thick pieces of home-made spelt bread, each with honey, peanut butter, raspberry spread and cottage cheese.

    Coffee. (Nothing in it.)

    Hard-boiled egg once I got to the office.

    A small-ish portion of udon noodles with two lime&cilantro flavoured chicken drumsticks (leftovers from last night). With the skin, thank you.

    A handful of cherry tomatoes and maybe 5 cubic inches of cheddar.

    An espresso.

    A (home-made) bun stuffed with a little more cheddar and home-grown sprouts, with a bit of Dijon mustard.

    That's it up to now, and I don't know what dinner will be yet.

    Oh, and maybe 3 small squares of milk chocolate (Ritters with cornflakes!). And about 2 liters of water.

    This a good thread for me. I've always struggled with my weight. I grew up eating what my mom called balogna boats: Ringed pickled balogne with a large scoop of mashed potatoes and topped with lots of cheese.

    Anyways:

    Breakfast:
    Fried egg sandwich (1 whole egg + 1 egg white on gluten free bread)

    Snack:
    Coffee and nature valley granola bar

    Lunch:
    2 cups cooked vegetables with a tsp olive oil and light seasoning
    1 cheese mozza cheese stick
    (usually it's more planned, but I was rushed this morning)

    Snack:
    Apple
    12 raw almonds

    Dinner:
    1/2 cup quinoa
    Chicken and broccoli stirfry (1/2 cup)

    Snack:
    Banana
    1/2 ounce 86% dark chocolate

    I wasn't planning no the last snack, but I ended up doing an hour ride on the trainer after I got the kids to bed.

    Nothing really to brag about, but today's food was:

    Breakfast:
    2 fried eggs, 2 croissants, a large skim espresso latte

    Lunch:
    large bowl of whole wheat cereal with lo-fat milk

    Dinner:
    2 bowls of vegetable soup jam-packed with veggies grown by myself and neighboring friends.
    Way too much local sheep milk cheese w/herbs.

    After breakfast today I rode my bike 16 miles which included a few big hills.
