Elisa and I aren't food snobs exactly, but we both praise Michael Pollan as a demi-god and love to garden.
So when we contemplated what to eat on our ride, I knew that it had to be done right. Yes we had cliff bars, and PB&Js were brought along for last ditch energy food, but I decided that the only way this would be a satisfactory ride was if I jumped in the kitchen and cranked us out some delicious nosh.
I was worred about eating things that would make us feel sick, that were too heavy, or downright disgusting. After scouraging the internet, I decided to go my own way, and I think we were all pretty pleased with the results. I was so pleased with our meal that I decided to share it with you all.
1. Pita sandwiches with homemade hummus, red bell pepper, cucumber, and carrot
2. Pasta salad with red onion, yellow bell pepper, pine nuts, and balsalmic vinegrette
3. Mollases cookies
4. Various Fruits
It was amazing and pretty perfect for a ride - protein, carbs, vitamins and minerals, ginger for tummies, roughage, so good!
