A Day of Eats

I have done a few days like this in the past where I capture all the gluten-free food that I eat in a day.  I chose last Friday, a day that I ran 8 miles, to show you how I refuel after a longer run.  Before my run I had a pack of Sharkies and during my run I drank watered down powdered Gatorade.

Breakfast consisted of 2 Van’s Blueberry GF Waffles topped with Trader Joe’s Almond Butter, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter, cinnamon & raisins.  I also had a cut up Macintosh apple on the side.  I ran out of my beloved Honeycrisp, so Macintosh had to do.  I also had an unpictured cup of decaf with cinnamon & vanilla almond breeze.


Days like this are hard for me to gauge food wise.  Some days when I run longer (usually 8+ miles), I have no appetite whatsoever and have to watch the clock to make sure that I am eating every 3 hours or so.  Other days I can’t get enough.  This day fell into the “can’t get enough” category.

Snack, not even 3 hours after breakfast, was a bowl of Glutenfreeda’s Instant Apple Cinnamon & Flax Oatmeal.


Lunch was a Baby Spinach Salad + grape tomatoes & Kraft Fat Free French Dressing, chicken, pear & sriracha sandwich on Pamela’s Bread, cut up pear & Glutino Pretzels.



Dessert, a must have after lunch, a mini Heath bar.


Snack time couldn’t come soon enough!  LOL!  I had a bowl of cereal, which included Rice Chex, Peanut Butter Panda Puffs & Barbara’s Honey Cinnamon Puffins with a cut up Macintosh apple.  Yes, I like my fruit. 😉


Friday was homemade pizza night.  I used Bob’s Red Mill Pizza Crust Mix.  I made mine with Trader Joe’s Tomato Chutney as the sauce base & topped it with roasted eggplant, mushrooms, spinach, goat cheese & pine nuts.  Kalamata olives would have really finished this off nicely, but I didn’t have any. :(  I also had a large mixed greens salad on the side.



I ate half of the pizza and all of the salad.  For dessert, which I forgot to photograph, I had a small helping of Edy’s Pumpkin Ice cream & some dark chocolate chocolate chips on top.

It was a good day and I felt refueled enough to run 5 miles the next AM and finished my last mile in 8 min. 24 seconds.  Love runs like that!

Hope you all had a a great weekend!
