My diet is as important to me as my running. I’ve been vegetarian for over 15 years and 100% plant based for the last few (other than rare ocassion’s when there appears to be no other option but starve or stop racing).
I feel that my plant based wholefood diet is the best way to support a heavy training schedule / race calendar. If I wasn’t racing however, I’d still make the same choices. I’m not out to convince anyone it’s the only way to eat, that’s up to you – I do however get tired of the mis-conceptions and small-mindedness of some who clearly don’t take any interest in what they put into their bodies and how the body reacts to accomodate it. Nutritional value is seldom considered in any of these arguments.
I am passionate about good food and talk about it a fair amount (particularly on twitter). I’m not exactly a recipe guy but people do at times ask when they’ve seen some of my dinner plate photos. So, I thought I should start to write-up some of my more regular vegan recipes.
– Main meals
– Salads / sauces / dressings
