WIAW - Panzanella Salad

It's Wednesday, and I am creeping closer and closer to Marathon Glory, so Food, Fuel, and Nutrition are more important than ever.

So let's talk food. I have an AWESOME Panzanella Salad recipe for What I Ate Wednesday over at Peas and Crayons. This is perfect running fuel, because it obviously offers a higher level of carbs than you average salad. Plus the smoked salmon provides protein, there are tons of veggies, and the pepper are a great source of vitamin C.
