Avoiding dairy and wheat
I am also wheat intolerant and find that eating a larger meal at lunch time serves me - I have a baked potato / chuck it in the microwave for a few minutes and munch on that with some chicken or something.
Also, Sainsbury's have a MASSIVE wheat free / gluten free range - although I can't stand any of the "breads", I eat corn crackers with a range of meats / baby potatoes and wheat free pasta (which tastes a little odd, but otherwise ok).
Rice is great as well, and I really enjoy the Free From Nuts and Fruits breakfast as well. Cut up a banana, chuck in some yoghurt and you are good to go!
I often have periods where i'm totally raw vegan. Just eating raw fruit, veg, nuts and seeds and i have more energy and can run faster and further when i eat like this. All fruit and veg is full of carbohydrate. A daily green smoothie made with pears, banana, spinach or other greens and hemp seeds (sprouted if you can or just soaked) and you'll be running like you've had a rocket put under you. Add sesame seeds for calcium, theres more calcium in a spoonful of sesame seeds than a pint of milk!
Most of the quorn range contains wheat so do make sure you read the ingredients beforehand.
The best bread that I've found so far is the Rossiky Rye bread (you can get it in either Waitrose or Sainsbury). It doesn't contain wheat or yeast (it uses sprouted grains instead). It's not as dry and crumbly as a lot of the WF breads.
Brown rice has a higher GI level than most carbs. Usually after a long run I make myself a smoothie of a pint of soya milk, any flavoured soya yoghurt, a banana, handful of ice and any berries I've got - very filling.
I've recently been diagnosed with coeliacs and I'm looking for a really good energy bar that I can try, so many of them have oats in!
Can anyone recommend any?
