I wound up having a very high carb meal for...linner? Lunch at 4 pm. It was butternut squash with a head of garlic, 1/2 lb diced chicken, 1/8 cup tomato sauce, 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 onion, basil, parsley, salt & pepper. I had no idea the squash would be such a carb load. It was fabulous. And afterward, I felt like I could run a marathon. Three hours later, I walked a mile and did my taekwondo class, which was a high-energy class -- and I had a terrific time. My kicks were higher, my stretches were stretchier, and I felt stronger than I have in a while. Maybe it was because of the 80+ grams of carbs I had three hours earlier. Maybe not. But I felt (and feel) terrific. (Today will be a <150 g carb day. Rah!)
