Salad, steak or chicken and sweet potato
My pre-race meal is a big salad: spinach, peppers, carrots, mushrooms, onion, sugar snap peas and tomato, with 2 tablespoons of a yogurt-based dressing. Then either a large steak or large chicken breast and a huge baked sweet potato with salt, garlic salt, pepper, paprika and brown sugar. Sweet potatoes are my obsession, chock full of vitamins and minerals; I don’t eat any bread, pasta, muffins or any sort of flour-based carbs.
