There are two reasons I tend to feel nauseated.
- Eating the wrong foods just before Jits class.
The best way to eliminate the first reason, is to keep going to class.
The second reason takes a lot more thought and work that I had not anticipated in the least.
Eating a McChicken prior to being caught in Shari’s closed guard wasn’t one of the smartest decisions I have made in my life. ***Cue in required bucket…just in case.***
I know. I know. McDonald’s is terrible food – as is any fast food – but you don’t understand!! I am always in a rush!!
(How whiny and obnoxiously brutal does that sound?)
So here I sit staring at my screen and while lately all I ever do is search for other women’s blogs on Jiu Jitsu…I find myself drawn to food and nutrition.
It’s time to make time and stop eating take-out. I will start to post different recipes that I find I enjoy and in turn hopefully so will you. Mom’s recipes are awesome especially because I grew up eating those foods but I am realizing that some of those foods are too heavy in my stomach – especially just before I am about to roll on the mat.
Lately I have been turning to drinking a smoothie no later than 5pm on training days, I call it my go-to smoothie (I am quite sure it has a real name somewhere out there). They seem to eliminate hunger, not add to the nausea and I still feel light enough to hop around the mat. The only problem is I am starving about an hour after class, so I will have to keep playing with food until I figure this out. As I find recipe ideas, I will add it to Fast Food: No Mas!. (For those of you not fluent in Spanglish, this translates to No More Fast Food.)
Comment below if you have any recipe suggestions and thank you for providing them.
