If I need something more substantial (e.g. before a long ride or after an early Am workout), I've been cooking up scrambled or poached eggs with some form of veggie and/or sausage (Aidell's chicken apple) scramble. My favorite combination is sausage, mushrooms, spinach and sweet potato with half an avocado alongside eggs. Thankfully I made a huge batch of the scramble at breakfast today so I'm all set for tomorrow too. PurplePatch swim and run will require some serious post-workout refueling!

|Same sausage scramble but this time poached eggs and fruit too|
|WholeFoods to the rescue: frittata with chicken and avocado|
|Sweet potatoes, bell peppers, spinach and sausage, eggs and avocado|
|Great friends still invite you over for dinner when you are on Whole30:|
grilled chicken with roasted veggies and a mixed green salad
|Spiced chicken and parsnips|
|Burger, sweet potato fries and sautéed Brussel sprouts|
|Cauliflower fried rice with shrimp and bok choy|
During and after workouts, I have deviated from the strict Whole30 protocol, as I am using Nuun for hydration and Osmo recovery drink mixed with almond milk for a recovery drink (adding for full disclosure!).
This coming weekend will be a test of our nutrition plan since training volume is set to increase dramatically. Rich and I will be heading down the California coast to Santa Monica on our bikes... I think it's about 460 miles of riding in 4 days. I'm more worried about Rich finding enough food to get through each day's ride. We've been packing bananas, nuts, Lara bars and Kit bars on rides and runs recently but those choices will get old fast this weekend!
