blueberries or fruit great to give you some energy or a light salad Smile x

Don't cry because it's over. smile because it happened!

I eat protein, usually in the form of 2 scrambled eggs, but lots of nutritionists recommend a small handful of nuts as well. One of the things about exercise is that it creates microtears in the fibers of your muscles, and in order for you body to repair those tears (and build more muscle), you need protein. More muscle is good becaues it makes us look more toned, and it helps us burn calories more efficiently by increasing our metabolism. It's probably also a good idea to make sure you're eating a sufficient number of carbs before doing a long, sustained aerobic workout so that you're body has enough fuel to keep you going. You'll burn calories more efficiently if you're body is working at it's best potential.

Cauliflower Grilled Cheese
I use ground pork rinds for "breading". They are excellent and make the meat even more succulent. I would think that it should work on cauliflower too (never seen the show so no idea)
