So here is sample of my meals.
Breakfast - oatmeal with handful of walnuts, raisins, maple syrup, one banana, some berries and a handful of granola cereal. If I have a long run then I add more fruit. I love this breakfast. I get the fast carbs from the fruit and then the slow carbs from the oats. I tend not to have to bring extra fuel on my run when I eat this. I run about 2 hours after this meal.
lunch - this is still my biggest meal of the day and it varries what I eat. Usually some type of bean with a potato or rice with steamed veggies and tomatoes. I vary this up alot with different beans, tubers and veggies. Never dull. I am loving my bean burgers too. And I wait about a 1/2 hour and have a piece of fruit. If I don't run that day then I omit the potato or rice and add more veggies.
So that whole food combining thing has gone out the window. The other day I had a 20 mile run. I had my usual breakfast and lunch and when I was done my body wanted something sweet. So I listened to it. Immediately after my bean and rice lunch I had on huge sweet cantaloupe. I had no issues at all.

Our summer has been one of the driest in a long time. And warm. So our growing season here is awesome. Best garden I have ever had. I have been foraging my meals daily from what I grow. In the garden I have a ton of cukes, kale, peas, and potatoes. And we have acres of wild blackberries. I have been freezing a lot of berries. Nothing like eating fresh picked fruit and greens. This is how we all should eat year around. From your own garden. Unfortuately, I can't. Though people do so now I have to try to figure that out.
I have 5 pumpkins growing too! And they are already turning orange. Last year I waited until mid October for my pumpkis to turn orange and they never did. So I carved them green.. They still looked cool. Last years growing season wasn't as warm.
Running is going great. Hoping to pick up a race in October. Didn't do the 100 miler. So I will try one here again soon. I am in such great running shape right now and if I can keep it that way going into my 100 I should do REALLY well.
