    As Eric said just prepare larger portions and take it as leftovers.

    Here are some real easy ones:
    buy a 2lb bag of Tilapia, thaw, put on a pan with some salt and pepper, cook at 400 for 15 minutes
    buy 4 sweet potatos, wash, put in microwave for 14 minutes

    Once everything has thawed out you have four separate meals, prepared in under 20 minutes
    Tilapia??

    Ewww.

    Yeah an older man was lighting a cigarette coming through a parking lot and missed stopping before the street and hit me.
    There was that and the three concussions I had in three weeks when I was in my early 20's

    Not that impressive? I know you're not that much bigger than me, and I weigh 124 right now. With the power I can put out, sitting behind someone cranking out 400w on the flat doesn't feel "not really super impressive" at all. It feels like hanging on for grim death.

    As for 4.9 w/kg, I would LOVE to have 4.9 w/kg. That's plenty enough to be a domestic pro sprinter. I tested my threshold (20 min, not FTP!) 4-5 weeks ago at ~3.26.

    Uh, sorry, were we talking about nutrition? I got done with a long ride this morning, followed it with a pint of chocolate milk and a ham and cheese sandwich. Pre-ride was oatmeal with milk and sugar. More training tonight, too! Hmm, I should buy some fish, seeing the posts about tilapia fillets is making me want more fish in my diet.

    BTW just for clarification I did say north of 400W
    Sprint numbers put me in a little different class

    And as for fish? We buy so much fish and chicken it is ridiculous. We try and use only salt and pepper for seasoning (sea salt).

    Grolby next time throw some eggs in there
    .
    Here is a typical breakfast (wife eats the same thing)
    3 eggs
    1/2 cup of egg whites
    2/3 cup of steel cut oats
    Maybe some strawberries or a banana

    If it was right now that car would have been ****ed up

    Well, I'm just taking 400 as a lower bound.

    And most mornings lately I'm eating 2 or 3 eggs. Usually 3. It's actually driving my gf crazy, she hardly ever has one, and they're gone before the weekend half the time. Usually I do steel cut, no time this morning. I really think they're much better to fuel a whole morning than rolled oats - takes much longer to digest (lower glycemic index?), so you aren't starving 45 minutes later, more protein and fiber from the seed coat still being there. I typically use rolled oats when I'm in a hurry because they cook so much faster. Instant oatmeal is a joke (but don't tell my gf I said that!) - rolled oats take 5 minutes to cook.

    Re: oatmeal, my gf just introduced me to the trick where you make a batch at night (not instant), then just reheat them in the morning. Why didn't I think of that??

    Up to now I only did instant b/c I was lazy, but now I can still be lazy AND eat the good stuff.

    A good trick for me during work is to keep oatmeal on hand. I typically just fill my coffee cup with oatmeal and water then microwave, hit it with honey/nuts/dried fruit depending. Eggs,chicken and fish are bought like nobodies business. I grab Salmon when on managers special as well!

    Most of my rides, I find bananas just about the easiest thing to eat quick. I do end up stuffing them back in my jersey depending on the situation which can be messy.

    Oatmeal in bowl, water up to the top of oats, microwave on 60% power for 3 minutes, done.

    Do you enjoy "severe gastro-instestinal disturbance"? That's what my copy of Cycling Science from 1986 says it does, in the article about stuff the US team tested for the Olympics. They passed on the bicarb for the Olympics even though in testing it appeared to help for some track events like kilo. The side effects were just too awful. They did inflate the track bike tires with helium, to save 10g.


    I put the salad dressing in a seperate container and toss it into the salad before I eat it. If it sits around with the dressing mixed in the lettuce wilts.

    That works (4 min for thick rolled oats).
    You can use a rice cooker for steel cut oats. The smell encourages you to get up, assuming you're hungry that is.

    Helium in tires. Silly for a couple reasons.

    I don't put the salad dressing on the salad until right before I eat it as well. I don't think I was clear on that part.

    Me too! And this may sound dumb but what's the difference between a threshold and FTP test? Isn't it possible to do a 20 min FTP test? The only downside is that it's only 20 min instead of 60, so it's not as 'detailed' as it could be if it were an hour.
