Fuel Triathlon Training With Pasta

Oct 16, 2007 |

While at the grocery store yesterday, I was reminded of the low price of pasta. A 16oz box of pasta costs less than a dollar, if I buy the store brand, and a jar of sauce costs another dollar. For about 2 bucks, I can make a big pot of pasta that has nearly 2,000 calories in it. It reheats well.

Though the pasta is especially high in carbs, it also has a noteworthy amount of protein. The carbs are great for fueling triathlon training.
