Tri-athlete Desiree Ficker Is gluten-free

Recommended Posts

I was reading the October 2007 issue of Runner's World last night, and there was an article about tri-athlete Desiree Ficker, and it mentioned she was gluten-free! She has a website where people can ask her questions, and there's a few questions about what to eat on long workouts (this question comes up here all the time!) http://www.desireeficker.com/articles/category/nutrition

The magazine gives a sample of her diet.

Pre-workout breakfast: 2 pieces rice bread with butter or honey, banana, coffee

Post-workout breakfast: berry smoothie with soy milk

Lunch: chicken breast on spinach, tortilla chips

Snack: banana or grapefruit

Dinner: brown rice, fish or chicken, broccoli, carrots, zucchini

Dessert: vanilla soy ice cream

Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.
