Eat Like a Marathon Champion- from Blogtalkradio's Fitness Director, Peter K

Peter K and Serafina Restaurant Group show YOU how to eat like a marathon champion with their MARATHON WEEK MENU.

5 mtfWant the energy of a marathoner whether you are running the race or not? Who doesn’t want more energy in this time of multitasking and trying to be and do everything at once? The great news is we can all get more energy very quickly and easily. HOW?

I recently designed a Marathon menu with Serafina Restaurant Group in NYC and wanted to share some great energy tips with you. Listen to the The Peter K Show to hear all about how to get more energy, strength and endurance.

Let’s start with where energy comes from. Keeping it simple, energy comes from what we eat and drink. PERIOD. Forget claims from questionable sources that energy comes from “magic pills”. The nutrients from the foods we eat and what we drink provide us with the energy to fuel our daily lives – and right on through a marathon!
Here is a list of the foods you should include in your diet for sustained energy and overall HEALTH:

COMPLEX CARBS:

  • Whole wheat breads, pasta and other whole grain products (oats, rye, etc)
  • Brown rice
  • Sweet and white potatoes
  • Starchy vegetables (legumes and root vegetables)

WHOLE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES:

  • Green leafy (lettuces, spinach, kale)
  • Brightly colored veggies (red/yellow/green peppers, tomatoes)
  • Fiber rich fruits of all colors (apples, oranges, pineapple)

Here’s a sample of an energizing menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal or whole grain cereal with skim milk or soy milk and fresh fruit. Another option would be a whole grain bagel or English muffin with all natural fruit preserves

5 mtfLunch: Serafina whole wheat pasta with organic vegetables. Whole wheat is a healthier pasta choice with more fiber that will help slow the release of sugar to your bloodstream. With choice of:
Grilled organic chicken breast paillard, served w lentils, spinach and sweet potatoes or steamed vegetable platter

Dinner: Serafina whole wheat pasta with organic vegetables. Grilled Filet mignon (4 oz.) served w extra virgin olive oil mashed sweet potatoes

For a snack and before training choose an apple, banana or kiwi
