Feeling great, no soreness from long run, chocolate almond cookies
Tuesday, February 07, 2012
In spite of running 13 miles total yesterday I don't have any sore muscles and went ice skating for 2 hours today. I also walked dogs for about a half hour.
As far as food I'm getting more in the habit of eating raw. If I cook vegetables I stir-fry them in healthy oil, usally virgin coconutoil for only a few minutes. I'm going to start using my raw cookbooks and videos more.
Dinner tonight was mostly vegetables with very little protein and fat so I decided an hour after dinner I was hungry for some more protein and fat. I had a bowl of full-fat yoghurt with blueberries.
I also think that I may be somewhat lactose-intolerant since I don't feel very good after drinking milk, but don't have any trouble with other dairy products at all. I may give raw milk a try tomorrow to see if that makes any difference.
I've ground some almonds into almond meal in the food processor and made some raw almond chocolate cookies by adding 100% Ghirardelli chocolate, a little milk and coconut crystals as sweetener, We enjoyed them but no cravings to finish the plate, we just had two each.
