Fuel: Triathlon Tuna Sandwich


Aric In Training Makes a Tri Tuna SandwichA 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!

TTS has:

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:

Chop the bell pepper and onion to a consistency of your taste, mix all ingredients in a bowl.   Let sit for a few minutes to let the flavors mingle.  Serve on sprouted grain bread (toasted or not depending on equipment and taste)
