Guess what song I have had in my head for 3 days now – (I’m talking about good hydration, It’s giving me exitations, Good, good, good, good hydration…OK enough of that).
Anyway, it seems the summer has finally arrived in the UK- hurrah! After my long run on Sunday I was very conscious of drinking enough, as I have a tendancy to get headaches after long runs in the heat. But some nuun and coconut water sorted me out. I was really thirsty on Monday, which I suppose might have been a sort of after effect.
Anyway, this is my food from Tuesday:
Started with a few bites of a blueberry clif bar (my they are sweet) before I went out for a 6 mile run. I wanted to go before it got too hot, and had a lovely run up to the lakes, around the park, and saw lots of rabbits!
Once I got home and had a shower, I had this lovely breakfast to enjoy. The night before I mashed up a banana with a little pb, and then topped with muesli, a few chia seeds, and hazelnut milk. It had really thickened overnight so I added a little more hazelnut milk before serving.
Then I was off to the allotment for some weeding- bindweed seems to have taken over now. It was so hot there- I wish I had taken some water with me.
Two slices of tea bread, one with sunflower seed butter and one with lime curd.
Plus watermelon and pineapple. I find watermelon the most refreshing fruit for the summer, especially when chilled as it is like eating sorbet.
I also snacked on a few freshly picked berries while I made some ice cream with all those blackcurrants.
I didn’t eat the ones that had been already started on by bugs!
Roasted beetroot, courgette, peppers, with spinach, basil tofu, hummus and pine nuts. A bit random, but lovely- it was so hot that I wanted a cold salad.
Home-made coconut and blackcurrant ice cream (recipe next time in case anyone is interested).
As for my good hydration, I had lots of water as usual, and made a big jug of iced mint tea, plus a nuun tab in water once I got back from my run. Again I was a bit worried that I would get a headache (especially as I felt I overheated a bit at the allotments- no shade there at all) but I was OK.
