Running fuel: Peanut butter, banana and flaxseed on toast

Running fuel: Peanut butter on toastOne of my favorite things about running is the fuel part. Actually, it can be a challenge to figure out what’s gluten free, what’s portable to take to work (I’m an evening runner), and what’s going to keep me me right a couple of hours before a run (or longer). Here’s one of my go-to’s:

  • 2 slices of spelt bread (I know, spelt isn’t technically gluten free. But I’m able to eat it with no problems.)
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (natural would be better but I use Jif)
  • 1 tablespoon of raw, whole flaxseed
  • Half a banana
  • A cup of coffee, of course

Calories: 454. So tasty, and promise it’s prettier than my low-lit cubicle allowed it to be seen.
