Nutrition for Runners: Nuts and Bolts

Tonight’s is for an easy to make healthy snack. The version is based on the first recipe found on this page.

In order to make our version healthier my wife made the following changes to the recipe:

  • Added sesame sticks
  • Used unsalted peanuts
  • Used garlic powder and onion powder instead of garlic salt and onion salt
  • Used fresh pressed coconut oil instead of vegetable oil
  • Instead of celery salt used a Mott’s Rimmer for Caesar’s – not sure this last step made the recipe healthier but it was the only alternative we had.

 

Nutrition for Runners: Roasted Veggie Quinoa Bowl

Tonight’s recipe is a vegan one. If you are interested you can find the full recipe here.

I usually post recipes that are quick and easy to make. While this is a good recipe and I do recommend it I will point out that it is not as easy as some of the other recipes I have posted here.

Unless you are more efficient at chopping broccoli, sweet potatoes and kale than I am or are not watching a 6 year old and a 3 year old while doing it you will need some time to prepare this meal.

Once the preparation was done this made for a great meal. The different textures and flavours mixed together very well and it was filling.
