Nutrition for Runners: Quick & Easy Chana Masala

Tonight’s recipe was my first attempt at making an Indian curry. If you are interrsted in the recipe you’ll find it on page 163 of the Oh She Glows cookbook. Of course that means that once again this is a vegan recipe.

This is not an overly complicated recipe but I would say it took me about a half hour to make. It was worth the effortand I was pleased with the result and will put this one in the rotation again.

We served it over rice the first night we had it. The following day I had it over a baked potato another good option if you are looking to carb-load for an upcoming marathon.

Tonight’s recipe is another one from the Oh There She Glows cookbook. This recipe is for a vegan energy bar. If you want to find the recipe you can find them on page 215 of the cookbook.

I made a batch of these last night and I must say this is a very easy recipe to make. It involves a very minimal amount of cooking. I made it during commercial breaks while watching the Amazing Race on tv last night.

I was quite pleased with how they turned out. They will make for great snacks at breakfast or before a run.

Nutrition for Runners: 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta

Tonight’s recipe is my latest attempt at making a recipe from the Oh She Glows cookbook. This one is probably one of the easiest recipes I have made in a long time. You can find this one on page 173 of the book.

For pasta I used fettucine but you could substitute in any kind of pasta you feel like making it with. Next time I might make it with penne or macaroni since they are easier for my kids to eat.

The sauce for this pasta takes about five minutes to make. The longest part of the recipe is waiting for the pasta to cook once you have the water boiling. It is a perfect recipe to make during the week because it is easy to make and also very tasty.

The only suggestion I have is that if you are making it to feed four like I was I would suggest making a little more of the creamy avocado sauce than the recipe calls for so you can mix it in well with all of the pasta.
