Nutrition for Runners: Chocolate-Hazelnut and Goat Cheese Melt


For tonight’s recipe I went back to the Runner’s World Athlete’s Palate cookbook. It might actually be the first dessert recipe I have posted here. I ended up making this one because I was looking for something quick and easy that the kids would enjoy after dinner.

You can find the recipe on p.182 of the cookbook if you are interested in making it. I probably spent more time at the grocery store getting Nutella and goat cheese than I did making it so it certainly qualifies as a quick and easy recipe.

You won’t be surprised to hear that my kids loved this. Nutrition wise it does pack a decent amount of protein and carbohydrates although it is sweet so you won’t want to have too much.

Nutrition for Runners: Pasta Mediterranée

Tonight’s recipe is another one from the Runner’s World Athlete’s Palate Cookbook. This is the third or fourth recipe I’ve tried from the book and this one was another hit.


I think this one might have been the easiest so far out of the recipes I’ve tried. It is really quick. The only work involved in this one is chopping the eggplant and zucchini.

We enjoyed this recipe so much that we ate it two night’s in a row. I made the recipe exactly according to the book on the first night and found it to be light on veggies once I added the pasta. Tonight I chopped more eggplant and zucchini to toss in. I would recommend that if you want a lot of veggies in your dish.

If you have kids our one year-old loved. She ate it without issue both nights.

This is definitely one we will make again!
