i've been gone...

sorry haven't been posted for a while.

i have been updating my
training blog but have neglected this blog for a while as my diet has been less of an interest to me as i've just been trying to get on with training for some upcoming ultras, long distance adventure runs and speed record attempts.

but with an event looming my focus has been switched back on as i attempt to get in to peak fitness and trim some unwanted baggage from my frame. being lighter will hopefully have it's advantages running up all the hills on race day...

my diet has been largely organic and raw but i'm feeling the need to get back into some good old primal food as my training exceeds 200 kilometres (124 miles) running per week...

food on the run...

i'm on the search across the web trying to find food that i can put together to carry while running or to have as a quick snack between meals.i'm building my personal resource page for links to various recipes and i'll update regularly.

to start with i came across the site
primal fusion and they have the following recipes i'll give a go or modify to fit with what i eat...

primal bar - lara bar (alternative)

from checking out the running raw site it seems he nearly lives of these things but eating processed sports/nutrition bars can get quite expensive. but as they are made from two of my favourite food groups (nuts and fruits) i'll be giving them a go shortly.

peanut butter powerballs

they are made with peanut butter but i might try substituting these with almond butter.

another great site i've found which i highly recommend is
vo2 maxxed and some samples of their recipes include:

oat power cookies

m&j's cranberry pumpkin power snacks

other inspirational nutrition and training sites include:
