Day 77: The pre-marathon meal


So I have been racking my brain about what to eat the night before my run. I know that is has to be carb heavy but not too calorie

I got a recipe from here is a link to her recipe.


It’s Koshari, a mixture of pasta, rice and lentils. It sounds like the perfect carbload without it being too heavy. I’m trying it out today just to make sure that I it sits well with me. I don’t want to risk anything before the race.

Here are the ingredients


  1. I cup lentils
  2. I cup rice
  3. 1 cup small pasta
  4. 3 large tomatoes
  5. green peppers, zuchinni
  6. I large onion
  7. Garlic
  8. Olive oil
  9. Dried mixed herbs

10. Spices (I just threw in a bunch of spices I had in the pantry. Cumin, curry powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper)

11. 1-cup pasta sauce.
