Breakfast for Dinner

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
  • milk

So basically I have to give up dairy for grains, meat, and nuts. Not a bad trade, I'll have to say.
