Running on greens

Running and simple, healthy, nutrient dense food are my two passions. Lately the three key things I'm doing with my nutrition are 1. having a meat and nut breakfast 2. limiting carbs to post-workout and 3. limiting my sugar intake (which is mainly fructose). It's evened out my blood sugar and energy levels, and has prevented carb and sugar cravings, which means I can happily eat veggies and protein for most of the day. My diet's not perfect, it's a constant work in progress. These are my recipes - I hope you'll find some you enjoy too. Lauren xx
