For the endurance athletes: mangoes

Whether you are a long distance endurance runner of a frequent, steady 5K jogger, you are well aware that the energy sustaining your efforts comes mainly from carbohydrates. And while fruit high in fructose and total carbohydrate are to be avoided for those with high level of blood sugar, endurance training requires healthy loads of yummy carbs. Mangoes, among the sweetest, richest fruit out there, are perfect candidates for inclusion in a pre-training meal: in addition to the 28g of carbohydrates, they are a fantastic source of vitamins A, C, and B6, alpha and beta-carotene, and omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. So don’t forget to include half a mango in a smoothie, add some light leafy greens–spinach or kale, some ground nuts and seeds, and enjoy a peak in energy and stamina.

I hope you are enjoying the end of a busy day with some vegan gluttony! My end of the day snack is a juicy, savory, crunchy and very fresh summer salad made with hearts of palm, capers, olives, roasted red peppers, fresh yellow peppers, and the mandatory tomatoes, all tossed in aged balsamic vinegar. Vitamins C, A, B, fiber, healthy fats, and numerous minerals, tasting fantastic. Have a wonderful night, and thank you for stopping by.
