What to feed a tapering athlete?!

Lots of Good Pure meats and omega rich fish, Local Fresh ingredients and Produce, calcium and probiotics from natural Kefir, whole rolled oats, and oh of course NATURAL ALMOND BUTTER!!










During this taper time before James' Ironman (coming up March 7th), its crucial for him to stay lean and absorb TONS of good nutrients. So we back off the quick carbohydrates and focus on lots of fruits, veggies, good fat with Vit. E for even more antioxidants, and of course Protein for muscle regeneration and to keep him strong and Lean! I love cooking with fresh produce from the local Kona Farmers market and the papaya's are amazing here of course. Cut it in half and pour some natural kefir yogurt and local honey for a tasty and nutritious breakfast or snack! Just a quick update on training, cooking, oh and Lavaman Triathlon work is good as well! We're about sold out and the race is still 6 weeks away. ITS GONNA BE CRAZY BUSY, but that's good for us!
Check out www.lavamantriathlon.com for all the details coming up March 28th and 29th!

Cheers,

LCotter

Oh excellent post Lins! The taper-fueling is always a problem for me... GOOD READING!

I saw you running down Ali'i, as always you looked so beautiful and smiling, you and James fit into Kona life so well... MAYBE you should move back :)

GOOD luck with Lavaman stuff, let me know if you need any help!
