Last night, the ladies decided to have a girl’s night, where we gossiped about the latest television hotties and consumed large amounts of red wine.
A few exhausting drunk hours later, the ladies finally flowed out my house, except for Michelle, who stayed a while longer. We started chatting about how we wished we had the energy we had when we were younger.
I told her I’d love to be 20 years old again and hit those nasty uphills on my routes. At my age, I feel like I may just peg at any moment climbing those abominations!
Michelle suggested I try eating an energy bar before I ride, which isn’t a bad idea if they weren’t practically the same price as 200g rump steak!
That’s when I decided to hit the net and research what I can intake to increase my energy. After finding some disgusting options, such as rice cakes and rye crisp-bread, I eventually found something worthy of my taste buds and stomach – a peanut butter sandwich.
Peanut butter provides carbohydrates, protein and valuable fats. It’s also very rich in Vitamin E, which is a valuable antioxidant that helps counteract the harmful free radicals produced during exercise. Besides that, it’s tasty
No wonder the kids always have so much energy all the time, they are balls of peanut butter inspired energy!
