Road to post-ride recovery
17TH OF FEBRUARY
Everybody likes some variety in food consumption. Here, I am thinking how to fuel myself after ride to speed up recovery as well as hit higher levels of good quality calories.
Everybody likes some variety in food consumption. Here, I am thinking how to fuel myself after ride to speed up recovery as well as hit higher levels of good quality calories. In past few weeks of training I have had an opportunity to go and shop for food available in Spain. Sure, you can get standard items one would consume day to day but I decided to go outside the box with my appetite.
For some, I am sure its completely normal, but I believe its nice to share my new discovery :) I have only used super simple spices as ground paprika, wild pepper, sea salt and curcumin (yellow stuff usually found in indian cuisine). Than I ve decided to cook only foods that are available fresh from the region or recommended by natives. Sometimes laziness might get in the way.... simply punch it out of the head, it is worth it ;) I have backed rabbit, fishes I ve had no idea that exist and of course I could not resist selections of dry cured hams form Spain, good steak, chicken and some basic regional sausages.
All was served with vegetables sometimes wine or beer, not much of spices, prepared usually on butter. I can honestly say the true taste of meat with fresh vegetables that are not chemically treated just to stay nice is superb. Below are some images, some viewers might find too graphic, but that is the real reflection of food I have cooked.
