Friday Favorites: Fueling Edition

It’s been a while since I did a Friday Favorites, and while browsing through some of the recent pics in my phone, I noticed a trend: I take a lot of FOOD pictures. So for this edition of Friday Favorites I’m going to share my favorite (if not the most well-advised) running fuel!

Enduro Packs

Now that the weather is creeping above 50 degrees, I sweat a LOT more. Like as soon as I start running I’m covered in a sheen. I never used to be a salty sweater, but in the past 2 years I’ve noticed a change in my body chemistry and find myself covered in dried salt even after shorter runs in warmer temps. Thankfully, EnduroPacks is there to help me replenish that salt and stay balanced. With no sugar or anything artificial, I spray this stuff right into my water when I’m done running and feel like a new person.

Pizza

I never said I was perfect, OK? But hear me out: after a long run, I crave weird things depending on what my body is missing. And lately, those cravings all tend to focus on huge slices of veggie pizza loaded with every vegetable you can think of. Namely the veggie pizza from our local pizza joint, pictured above (along with a white broccoli slice, because I’m only human). I’m not saying that this is OK to eat every day, but sometimes you have to listen to your body and go for the stinkin pizza.

Avocados

I. Love. Avocados. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here, but when I tell you that I could eat them at every meal, believe that. I’ve got an especially tasty recipe that involves fresh boiled shrimp, pico de gallo, avocado and chopped cilantro that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. My hubby and I have even considered moving to a warmer climate just so we could plant an avocado tree in our backyard and have them whenever we want. #obsessed.

How about you guys – do you have any favorite fuel? Share what you’ve been craving lately in the comments!

  1. Absolutely on board with PIZZA! Pizza the day before a race (with no veggies on it, unfort) and pizza with eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeverything veggie on it any time after is definitely on my list!

  2. I LOVE avocados. We have a big avocado tree in our yard and we patiently wait for winter every year so we can start harvesting them. It’s too bad that our entire neighborhood knows about the tree because strangers come and steal from it all the time.

    I love a thin-crust veggie pizza after runs, too! I think it’s actually a pretty balanced meal.

  3. Love my some pizza! And I definitely eat it eat more than I ought .. Oops! I’ve used EnduroPacks electrolytes and really believe in them. I just can’t afford their cost. I use NUUN most days. 🙂

  4. beer, i mostly always crave beer…but seriously, i’ve been making these great post long run smoothies with a plant based vanilla bean flavor from plant fusion – i’m hoping if i keep saying nice things about them on my blog and twitter they’ll make me an ambassador 🙂 i’ve never heard of enduro packs, will have to check it out…cheers!
