Race Week Eating…The Challenge before the Challenge!

This week I get to “fuel my body” for race day!  It’s hard to know what to eat to help your body perform its best for something like this.  I have consulted my running friends and have a pretty good idea for what I need to be doing.  Here is my lunch from today.  Egg Salad (recipe below) on Sara Lee Delight bread (6 Points Plus) 1/2 C low fat cottage cheese (2 Points Plus) Strawberries, Pineapple, Grapes (free!).  I. AM. STUFFED.  I know I have to eat more this week, but it is very hard.  I am not worrying as much about keeping my points this week, because I know the importance of making sure my body is fueled up…But I am also not going crazy eating huge amounts.  It’s a very good test for me!  We will see what the scale says next week!

Egg Salad

2 egg whites, 1 yolk (I unfortunately just throw the other one away)

1 Tbsp light mayo

1/2-1 Tsp mustard

1-2 Tsp chopped onion (I like red, but any variety works)

Pepper to taste, might need salt, I just try to avoid.

Chop it, mix it, eat it!
