steak and bake (the perfect pre-race dinner)

pre race fuel 2

Everyone has their own pre-race dinner routine. Prior to getting diagnosed with celiac, I used to always eat Velveta Shells and Cheese for dinner the night before a race. Then I switched it over to Annie's Gluten Free Microwavable mac'n'cheese. But now that I am grain free (with the exception for an occasional GF bagel and if I meet a GF cupcake in my future!), I think this is my new go-to pre-race dinner! It's got a ton of protein and carbs and it's really easy on the tummy. We also ate at 4:30 or 5, so it was plenty of time to digest.

Reid had a cider with his late lunch/early dinner, but since I was racing the next day I stuck with soda water with lemons, strawberries, and mint in a wine glass. Classy, I know!

What We Ate:
  • steak
  • baked potatoes
  • oven roasted asparagus
How We Made It:
  • Reid seasoned the steak with olive oil, black pepper, and my fave Lawry's Garlic Salt and grilled it on the gas grill
  • We baked the potatoes, coated in olive oil and sea salt, for an hour on 400
  • with 20 min left on the potatoes, I stuck the olive oil coated asparagus in the oven

It was our Early Bird Special steak dinner!
