As runners, it is especially important to fuel our bodies and eat lots of high quality foods to keep our bodies in top condition to withstand stress. Although I love cooking, (and eating!) I am no chef. I love when others share their favorite recipes, so I thought I would do that for today’s blog. All of the recipes below are my favorites that I make frequently!

 

Let’s start with a salad:

I love, love, love this salad. Perfect for summer! Served with some French bread, this makes a perfectly light main dish for two.

 

Main Dishes:

 

Spicy Roasted Shrimp with Broccoli:

We eat this with brown rice. We love roasted broccoli!

 

Mediterranean Baked Chicken- Great for cooking for more than two. Swap out Feta for the Mozzarella.

So good! I love these with the ginger garlic meatballs, or on their own! http://simplyreem.com/ginger-garlic-meatballs/

 

Spinach Sauce Pasta:

I use Greek Yogurt in place of the cream cheese.

 

I love great tofu recipes. This one is pretty amazing!

Serve with rice. So tasty!

 

These skewers are always a hit when we make them. Dip into greek yogurt. The sauce is awesome!

My two favorite cookbooks right now are the Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon

and the Crazy Sexy Kitchen by Kris Carr

Highly recommend both!

 

Happy running and eating!
