A first here on AricInTraining, a cooking demo. On the eve of my first triathlon for 2010, tradition requires that I produced an inspirational video, so I decided to take this opportunity to share my Triathlon Tuna Sandwich (TTS).
TTS is very simple and healthy sandwich I came up with the night before the 2009 Ventura Triathlon. After being inspired by a simple can of tuna and a bell pepper, the TTS came to life. You know, it worked!
1) Great source of low-fat protein
2) pro-biotics from the yogurt that helps settle my nervous stomach
3) The sprouted grain bread provides a great source of low-GCI carbs for long lasting fuel
4) the bell pepper and onion add the vegetable component.
Please check out my first cooking demonstration video below:
