Day ten: time to reflect and dish out...

"... to learn from it and to pass that on to others..."

I received that as a comment from a blogger-mate based on the other side of the world. Of course, he was referring to the latest in my world on two wheels. But it reminded me of one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place. I wanted to share some of my experiences with people that somehow would find this blog and somehow would change and improve something in their own lives.

Perhaps I haven't succeeded in doing so. Perhaps I never will. But I will keep trying, writing about my experiences and views, as a cyclist or not and on different topics, hoping that someone, anywhere, can one day sit back and say:

"- OK, I am learning something from this..."

Like I am!

Dish #1

On today's post, something on food. When I was growing up, everything, more or less, was related to large and delicious meals. Not the most balanced and healthy meals sometimes (too many desserts) and, as a compulsive surfer and the son of a restaurant entrepreneur, I ate too much, most of the times.

Today is a little different, and as a cyclist the subject always attracts questions on nutritional values and calorie counts. But I am not going to go into those details, I will let someone else do that and will just introduce a dish that is easy to make and, as one will find out and hopefully report on, as nutritious as it looks.

Tuna and Avocado Spaghetti

1/2 onion and 2 cloves of garlic

Broccoli (beans, snow peas or anything green)
and 1 avocado (thrown in last)

Frying with Olive oil

Tuna, spaghetti #5 and
cream (or low fat milk)

Add salt & pepper to taste,
1 x glass of Sauvignon Blanc

Bon appetite and safe riding!

Enjoying your posts Alberto

I would be interested in what your diet intake was leading up to the Grafton - Inverill and on the days you were doing your 200 k plus training sessions - before, during and after.
