Nutrition for Runners: Beef and Sun Dried Tomato Flatbread Pizza

I’ve been slacking on these posts lately but today I got around to trying something new that was worth posting. This is my latest attemp at making a recipe from the Runner’s World Athlete’s Palate Cookbook. For any runners who are interested in healthier nutrition options I would recommend this book. I got it for Christmas two years ago and I still go back to it.

I decided to try this one tonight because it was the one pizza recipe in the book that I had not yet tried and I figured that anything involving back steak had to be good. 

This recipe was really easy to make. I prepared it while my two year old was watching Lady and the Tramp on DVD without her noticing I was in and out of the house to grill the steak. If you are interested in this recipe you can find it on pp. 150-151 of the book. 

I made one alteration to the recipe by using green onions instead of roasted shallots. I think the green onions worked just fine.  My wife and my two year old certainly did not complain. I definitely plan to make this recipe again. 

Also, if you are a craft beer fan like I am I will mention that a pale ale paired well with the meal…
