runners know that after a long run, you need to fuel up and replenish those hard-working muscles. you need nutrient-dense foods with enough carbs, protein and fats to aid in your post-workout recovery.
here’s one suggestion from i won! organics ambassador and nutrition health coach, edith agoston that we like to think of as a redefined huevos habaneros:
what runners eat to refuel
i sautéed some onions and added in organic refried pinto beans, then fried a pasture raised egg from @greenbowfarm and seasoned it with sea salt, pepper and hungarian paprika. (i always have a mishap in this step!) then i added in half of an avocado, sunflower shoots from my local @seattlefarmersmkts, a scoop of island salsa from @traderjoeslist and some of the bbq flavored tortilla chips from @iwonorganics.
packed full of healthy carbs, fiber, good fats and of course, protein, this recovery meal is exactly what a runner needs after a grueling workout. edith likes to buy local, organic foods and incorporates this healthy way of eating into her overall fitness program. she told us:
i stay healthy by listening to my body, drinking ionized alkaline water, eating local seasonal and organic produce that i buy at my local farmer’s market, sleeping well, practicing meditation and of course, getting plenty of exercise!
besides running, edith enjoys biking, swimming, and paddle boarding, and she’s been practicing bikram yoga for the past 15 years. for edith, that #iwonfeeling is all about staying active and living life to the fullest. she told us:
i am most happy when i feel that i am following the correct path, the path that was intended for me. these days that means connecting with more people in the health and wellness world, and living my healthiest life, spending time on the beach in west seattle with those closest to me, continuing to learn and improve my skills as a health coach, and nourishing my body with nutrient-dense foods.
