Puppy Chow and Pasta
Puppy Chow and Pasta....it must be a swim meet!
It's a meet weekend which means two things...puppy chow and pasta (OK...more than that...it means timing and swimming, and friendship too). Club meets usually start on Friday night and continue on Saturday and on Sunday. This meet doesn't have a prelim/finals format, so when the meet is over for the day...it's over until the next day. Our club hosts the meet which means that a few donations go a long way. So, I bought a big box of crispix and made some puppy chow to be sold at the meet. It's good for us (being a food allergy household) to have something we made as a food option since we know that it is safe.
We heard a nutritionist talk to the swim team last week and she did tell us that carbs the night before the event are not so important as carbs after the usual training. BUT, I think that the psychological boost from a meal of carbs is good too. So, pasta many times over the weekend. I'll post about that later.
