↑ Turkey Trot Meatballs
I need a lot of protein in my training. I crave it, and it keeps me full. The convenience and versatility of the meatballs are really appealing. You make a big batch, and have them around. My training is like Groundhog Day – it’s gruelling, and it’s pretty much the same thing every day for three months. Having a good variety of food options that aren’t bland and boring is really important to keep the taste buds happy. These are so versatile – you can even throw them on salads or in rice bowls.
Turkey provides protein that’s easy to digest, plus essential vitamins and minerals for energy production. Many people think only fruits and vegetables provide vitamins, but highquality meat is nutrient-dense. The cooking method also makes these a good choice for busy runners: Baking them is quick, and you don’t have to brown them first and then constantly watch while they simmer.
