Nutrition for Runners: Kota Kapama (Cinnamon Chicken)

Tonight’s recipe is my latest attempt at trying a recipe from the Runner’s World Athlete’s Palate cookbook. Based on the success I have had with it so far I would say it is one of the best Christmas gifts I received last year.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one before I got started. My wife and I were just scrolling through the book and thought it sounded good. If you are interested you can find this recipe on p. 120.

I wouldn’t say it was a complicated recipe to make but it did take me a little longer than indicated in the book because there were several things to get ready at once and I had not made it before. I think it will be much easier the next time I make it.

The effort was well worth it because the chicken was very tasty and a big hit with the family. Here is a picture of the finished product, as you can see I served it over quinoa.


Nutrition for Runners: Roasted Squash and Quinoa

IMG_0465Tonight’s recipe turned out to be a great way to use up leftovers from last night. Last night we made this recipe and had plenty of roasted squash leftover to use for another meal.

If you want to make this recipe cook one cup of quinoa then add 1 tbsp each of cumin, coriander, ginger, 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 3 tbsp of olive oil and salt to taste.

Add in your roasted squash and it is ready to eat!
