Nutritional Tips: Carbohydrates

Now is the time to make sure you’re eating carbs at each and every meal. Don’t mistake this for carb-loading but rather make it a point to have at least one carb food on your plate. Breakfast items include bread (toast, bagel, English muffin), any fruit or fruit juice, dairy (yogurt, milk), hot cereals (oatmeal, cream of wheat, grits), or your choice of cold cereals. Side items at lunch or dinner include potatoes (new potatoes, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes), rice (white or brown), pasta (tortellini salad, mac-n-cheese, etc). Remember the goal is to insure carbohydrate intake at each meal as you increase your mileage and draw closer to date of the Williams Route 66 Marathon.
