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.
