If I make lunch for myself and my friends, I try to make a light one. Did a copycat of Subways' chicken orchard salad sandwich that went over very well! Costco rotisserie chicken, apples, raisins and cranberries, little mayo... Perfect for a hot day.
Bacon wrapped hot dogs did well too, but had to take a nap after. An attempt at tandoori chicken did decently, too.
I've not seen that Gatorade stuff; will need to look next time I'm at the store.
Now I'm wondering if carb-loading the night before like runners like do is a good idea or not...
