On the Go Snacks for Busy Bee Runners.

I know, I know. So I rarely ever do FOOD posts anymore. Hey, look at my archives from back in the day. Y’all, I did foodie posts ALL THE TIME! So, I am thinking about bringing that back. Because not only am I an ultra runner but I love food. And I also love SOUL food – no, I am not talking about fried chicken, yams, and mac n cheese (but they, that is delicious too, YOLO) I mean food that is actually good for your mind, body and soul. And you have to feed your body good things in order to perform well as an athlete. So let’s chat about some of my favorite busy bee, on the go type of staples!

Yes, and that is the truth. Love me some avocado.

I like to keep ‘em around. Actually my favorite nuts are probably almonds and pistachios. I love pistachios because they take a little work to eat (I like that for some reason) and they just have a great flavor. I also love Tamari almonds from Whole Foods Market. They are delicious, you must track them down.

I love bananas because they are just quick carbs and I can gobble one up before a run. For some reason I prefer eating bananas before a run as opposed to after. After running I usually go straight to protein or more savory foods. But bananas always get the job done.

-Oven roasted chickpeas
Recipe here. Because they are ridiculously easy to make and you can cook ‘em and then cool off then put them in a baggie or tupperware to carry around throughout the day. Plus there are just so many seasonings and ways you can make chickpeas taste so delicious.

I am obsessed with dates, so much so that I kind of have to hide them from myself. But, they are FULL of fiber and goodness, and are sweet like candy. Really I like to eat a couple of these sometimes before a run for a quick boost of energy. And I also enjoy eating these as a snack during the day. Medjool dates are the best, you can even get ’em on Amazon.

Hey runners! What are some of your favorite on the go snacks?!

    1. I’m going to spank you! You are SUCH a mess!! I would tell you to get off my post commenting with such foolishness but I like you too much 🙂 #dontsmokekids We will make you quit one day. Until then I will just continue to influence you in a positive way. You’re welcome!

      1. Well, I did quit for 12 hours the other day. Mainly because I was too lazy to leave the apt and walk down the block to the shady bodega to buy a pack.

    1. I have before yes, slice in half put some sea salt on there (or cajun seasoning YES I am from the south is it obvious) and eat straight like that. I usually just eat half. But hey, again Texas/the south. We do ish like that.

  1. Those chickpeas sound amazing, going to have to make them soon! I am a garbanzo bean lover for sure, I love the beet hummus from the “run fast, eat slow” cookbook and am also a big fan of peanut butter and rice cakes for a quick and easy snack!
