Triathlete Beth Gerdes’ training-friendly shrimp tacos

Gerdes shared one of her weekly favorites: healthy tacos. What I’m eating: Shrimp tacos with jicama slaw. Whose recipe: These shrimp tacos are a recipe that was originally made for me by Jess Cerra when we lived together. 24 medium-size shrimp, de-veined with tail off2 tablespoons cumin1 tablespoon chili powder1 tablespoon olive oil1/2 teaspoon sea salt1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper8 thick corn tortillas1 cup green cabbage, thinly cut1 cup jicama, cut into thin matchsticks1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantroJuice and zest of one lime2 teaspoons agave1 large avocado2 tablespoons non-fat plain yogurt1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco extra limes for serving. Prepare a baking sheet with foil and non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, toss the shrimp with the cumin, chili powder, olive oil and salt and pepper until well coated. Broil for about 2 minutes per side, until spices are golden and the shrimp are just cooked through, but do not overcook. To cook the tortillas, place directly onto the burners of a gas stove over the flame. If working with an electric stove, place tortillas in oven under the broiler for 30-60 seconds per side, until they start to crisp just slightly. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of queso fresco, and evenly divide the slaw over the top.

Fat-Burning Machine: Easy Carb Cycling For a Better Body

HOW CARB CYCLING WORKS. While it has a fancy name, carb cycling is nothing more than eating more carbohydrates on some days to help promote muscle growth and eating less carbohydrates on other days to help minimize fat gain and even promote fat loss. Low Carb Days: promote fat loss by tricking your body into burning fat for fuel keep your body more receptive to insulin, improving your body’s muscle-building response. If you can add and subtract, you can do carb cycling. Notice how both the High Carb days and Low Carb days are virtually the same with just one simple replacement: we replaced grains and fruit with greens. The beauty of our carb cycling plan is in its simplicity. On High Carb days, eat starchy carbs and fruit along with your protein, veggies, and healthy fats. On Low Carb days, don’t eat starchy carbs or fruit, but continue to eat protein, veggies, and healthy fats. If you get in the habit of eating crap food on your High Carb days, your body will be more prone to pack on body fat thanks to the combination of high blood sugar, high blood insulin, and high blood fat. Which, you know, kind of defeats the purpose of carb cycling. Instead, use our simple carb cycling rules to turn your body into a fat burning, muscle-building machine.

Gregerson TRI

As we lined up in the water, we couldn’t help but notice how nice the water felt compared to the air temperature. The lake water was measuring at 64 degrees that morning, but compared to a ~56 degree air temp, the water was luxuriously warm. The air horn sounded, and off we went! THANK GOD FOR WETSUITS! Although I have a sleeveless wetsuit, allowing my arms and shoulders to feel the water around me, the wetsuit did a great job of keeping me from going into hyperventilation shock in the chilly water. The only issue I was having was, because of the cool water temp, my goggles would not stop fogging up. Out of the water I came, 4th in my wave, steaming into transition. After clumsily taking my wetsuit off for what seemed like at least 5 minutes, I was jogging out of transition and on my way to the bike course. The first part of the bike course I measured carefully – not killing my legs on the little rolling hills going out, but setting up a decent enough pace to have a good ride. I hit the turnaround, not having stopped, and walked the water stop. I had been carrying a gel with me, and shot that down quick with another cup of water. I made my goal, hitting the last water stop without taking a break, and did a quick walk-through while grabbing some fluids.
