Nutrition for Runners: Strawburst Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

Tonight’s is my latest attempt at trying one of the recipes from Eat & Run by Scott Jurek. I was intrigued by this one due to the anti-inflammatory ingredients (pineapple, ginger and tumeric). I’m not nursing any injuries at the moment but I figured this would be a good recipe to try as I am heading into my heaviest weeks of training.

If you are interested in trying this recipe you can find it on page 173 of the book. I had to make a couple of substitutions to my version – a bit of soy sauce used instead of miso and a 3-6 blend of oil instead of 3-6-9.

My wife was not a big fan of how it looked when it was finished but my kids enjoyed some with me. It has a sweet taste to it due to all of the fruit in it and you can also taste the ginger.

The best part about it for me is that the recipe makes 3 servings. Even after having a serving and sharing some with my kids I still have a serving in the fridge to enjoy after tomorrow night’s run home from work.
