Breakfast for Dinner
Here is a photo of my staples: eggs, bread, and coffee. On busy weeknights, a breakfast sandwich is all I manage to cook for dinner. I haven't followed a real "diet" for years, but lately I've been trying to find patterns between what I eat and how I climb. During a particularly lazy-food-prep week, I ate a breakfast sandwich every night and each subsequent night, I felt stronger climbing!
Below are the foods that I associate with stronger climbing (notice I used the word "associate" instead of "correlate" since the first thing I learned in Statistics 101 was that association is not causation, and this is certainly not scientific in any sense):
- oats + peanut butter
- rice + pork
- bread + eggs
- oranges + bananas
And below are the foods that make me fall off the wall:
- ice cream
So basically I have to give up dairy for grains, meat, and nuts. Not a bad trade, I'll have to say.
