Need a pre-race dinner that will give you the fuel and energy you need to take on even the toughest Spartan Race course?  Try this nutritious, delicious trio!

Warm up the oven at 375 degrees

Spread the coconut oil all over the chopped sweet potatoes. Place on a cookie sheet and cook for 30-40 min. Mix every once in a while to make sure they don’t burn in any sides. Add sea salt and lemon pepper before serving. You can even add a little touch of cayenne pepper or chili spices, if you like it spicy. Sweet potatoes are great veggies for athletes and Spartans! They are full of beneficial vitamins and low on glycemic sugars. I love eating these sweet potatoes before a race or a big training session. You should try it out.

While the potatoes are cooking boil some water to cook the vermicelli.

In a pan, warm up the sesame oil, add the onion, mushroom and soy sauce. Drain the noodles right away and drop them in the pan with the rest of the ingredients.

Serve with the sweet potatoes and a touch of your favorite green salad to make sure you get all your vitamins and minerals.

      Vegan and vegetarian diets offer a variety of benefits but are not the only healthy ways to get Spartan Performance Nutrition. You can substitute meat (especially of the lean variety) in any of the vegan recipes if you eat meat!

    So, I eat this how long before my race? 2 hours?
