Bacon For My Run & Later
Bacon During a Run & Bacon Gel
After my 5 mile run on Monday, I realized that I wasn't fully recovered from my cough and sore throat so I've been taking it easy. Because I wasn't sure how far I'd run on yesterday's 8 mile come-back run, I brought along a snack - bacon! Sometimes they have bacon at ultra aid stations and I like to test food out on my training runs. I didn't have any problems eating it and, of course, it tasted good!
Did you know that there is a bacon-flavored energy gel? VFuel Maple Bacon is on my wish list!
Even though I was able to wear shorts yesterday on my run (try not to be too jealous!), there were some chilly nights so I made Bean and Bacon Soup (Taste and Tell). It tastes like Campbell's bean and bacon soup and since I used canned beans (Navy), it was quick to put together.
To go on the side of my bacon soup, I made a BLT Salad (Skinny Taste). It's made up of BLT ingredients, minus the bread, and topped with avocado. Visit the Skinny Taste blog until Monday for her Skinny Taste cookbook and kitchen scale giveaway!
