Rest week food is similar to rest week training. The same, but less. Actually, you can shift away from carbs (add protein % & maintain fat %) a bit since you're not using them for fuel this week, but that's not really necessary. Don't over-think it.

That's about as much protein as I can find. One question though:

That's not much protein if it was just one egg.
And I agree with Fat Boy's comment.

Sounds good, what would an example of this be like?

@rkwaki - Aw really? Darn, I'll add another egg from now on then.

I know you are a young fella living with your parents. A couple of staples I would encourage you to speak to them about getting in the house are:
1. Lots of Eggs
2. Liquid Egg Whites
3. Protein Powder
4. Ground Flaxseed

If you are eating eggs mix two eggs with 1/2 cup of egg whites, some steel cut oats and turkey bacon for breakfast. Protein Shake (1 scoop) and ground flaxseed (1 tablespoon) for post ride

OK, on the yogurt side, go with unsweetened greek yogurt (much better carb/protein ratio). If you need it sweeter, add berries or some stevia (granola usually has plenty of sugar). For snacks, eat 1% cottage cheese or beef jerky. Avoid corn or potato chips. Eat fewer sandwiches of things. If you want a hamburger, then just eat the burger. If you _have_ to have bread with it, then just use one side and make the other side a big leaf of lettuce. Get 'low carb' whole wheat wraps and make your 'sandwiches' with those.

Nuts are also a good snack. They don't have much protein (compared to say, jerky...they're mostly fat), but most nuts (not peanuts) have a lot of good fat in them. They also stick with you fairly well as opposed to chips or something that your body burns in about 2 seconds. Baby carrots are also one of my snacks (although they are pretty much all carbs, it's not much).

My hectic life the last few weeks has forced me towards less home cooked and more quick and easy stuff.

I've gotten a lot of my protein from canned tuna/sardines. Any opinions? I get the water kind, not oil so it's typically 1-2g fat to every 20g of protein. I usually toss it in a salad or eat it w/ eggs and toast.

Good choice. Watch you don't get stinky finger.

Get the sardines in virgin olive oil (not soybean). FAT is not a bad word if it's the right kind.

So I've tried out the sweet potato thing a couple times over the last 2 weeks or so. I wash it, salt the outside, wrap in in saran wrap and then nuke it for 3-4 minutes (depending on size). I shoot for small sweet potatoes, about the size/shape of a banana. I cook them at night and then stick them in the fridge for the morning ride.

The salt on the outside it key. Gotta have a little. Also, you'll want to tear the plastic wrap open a little before you stick it in your pocket. They're tough to open otherwise. Beyond that, it's an easy thing to to carry and eat. If you like sweet potatoes, then it's a good, mild snack that isn't the normal bar or goo.

I missed this the first time around. Good info in here, only got through a couple pages so far. I'm currently in the "I don't know what I'm doing but I'm heavier than I want to be and this season is a wash anyway so let me try to diet slowly while training hard and see what happens" mode. So far as good. Down a few lbs, still getting faster.

We got one of those drink smoothie making blender things. It is getting a lot of use. Here is a typical breakfast now (quantities approximate):

1 banana
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup cherry juice
2 big collard green leaves
1/2 cup oats
3 eggs
handful of almonds
sprinkle some cinnamon and some salt

Everything is raw. Blend it all up and drink it down. Tastes great (honest), takes about 3 minutes to make, 1 minute to clean up after.

Love me some sweet potatoes while riding! I also do the same with regular potatoes and a little bit of parm.

Today's breakfast:

All in a blender:

a cucumber
several handfuls of kale
Several clumps of broccoli
a chunk of ginger
several cloves of garlic
4-5 stalks of celery
some pineapple
some blackberries
a banana that my middle one took a bite of and left
1/2 cup flax seed 'milk'
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
ice

It tastes OK. Not great, not bad. It would be better without the garlic, but that's supposed to be good for you. It makes a complete blender full of 'Soylent Green'. Down the hatch. I don't have any real recipe per say, it's just a matter of what's in the fridge that needs to go away.
