unrefinedmind posted a topic in Whole30 for athletesI am 16 days into my first whole30. It's going really well thus far, but I am struggling with the meal times due to my active career/lifestyle. I am a ski and bike patroller at a resort in Colorado. I am either skiing or biking/doing strenuous physical labor for 8-10 hours per day. Of course I have down time, so I'm not outside the entire day, but in general I would say my day is very active. I have always been the type of person that eats something basically every two hours to keep me fueled without feeling too full and crampy while I'm working. Since I don't have a set workout time, it's hard for me to know when is appropriate to have a pre or post workout meal. Should I just try and eat 3 meals anyways, or have 2 snacks during mid morning or afternoon? Although I've stuck to only whole30 foods so far, I have definitely been snacking more than I should and my goal is to establish new meal habits for the future so I don't feel like I need to constantly snack all day. Any advice with this would be greatly appreciated!
I am trying to find food that keeps me warm while skiing for many hours. We usually stop for lunch and that is the time for getting cold. I usually eat a whole pile of cheese and nuts for my snacks, those are mostly out. I have thought of olives, turkey slices, baby food vegetables, almond butter, compliant trail mix, but none of them thrill me like cheese does. Any other ideas out there? I could buy a little thermos and make some soup but I really don't like to carry much weight or waste much time. I already carry a thermos for tea (used to be hot chocolate).
Hi--I am a mountaineer who started my first W30 on January 1. I will be in the mountains this weekend snowshoeing for 7-8 hours each day away from any type of shelter and facilities. I made some homemade key lime larabar energy balls and I'm wondering if the dates should/would affect my current progress on this program. Should I chose to pack something else for quick fuel? I would love some recommendations. Also, are there any meals that can be eaten with one hand from a ziplock or wrapped if foil? I am currently planning to bring lettuce wraps with grilled chicken tenders, sunshine sauce and veggies, but I'm not sure how well the chicken will taste in the cold outdoors. Thank you!
Hi all! I am on day 18 of my whole 30 program. It's been great so far with meal planning. But I will be going skiing this weekend and would love to get some ideas for meals (both pre- and post-wo) I am planning to bring my own lunch so that it'll be whole30 compliant and save money from the expensive cafeteria! Any good ideas for pack-able meals? Thanks!
