Now that I’m in full training mode I have been seeking out more recipes for energy and overall body health. I find this to be a little irritating and too time consuming at times. It seems for every search there is something that is supposed to give you more energy and be healthier etc. ad nauseam. For the most part I eat healthy and I love to cook and bake. Did I mention…bake. For me I’m always looking for things that won’t make me feel sick or dragged down. Once I’m in the running zone, I don’t have to worry too much about calories, but I do look after what I’m putting in my body. I judge a good meal by eating enough and I don’t fee like I want to crash afterwards. I think everyone knows what I mean.
I have been cooking with quinoa and man do I have way to much of it in my house right now. This next recipe is a little ditty I found on the internet. I know it came from one of the running sites or someone’s running site ~ so I give you kudos my friend! I’m not even sure of the real name but I’m calling it Chicken and quinoa with olive gremolata.
Not bad at all. I could have done with a little less of the parsley and mint that made the gremolata, but overall it was a really tasty dish. The recipe however made a LOT. If this dish appeals to you I would suggest halving the recipe or you will be swimming in quinoa. I’ve attached the recipe below in pdf. Enjoy and happy eating!
