What's Cookin' (Read 231 times)

    This thread is about all things food be it the healthy vegan's or the double chocolate milkshake, anything goes

     

    My first addition is my post run shake.  I run right before its lunch time so this acts kind of as both post run and the beginning to lunch.  Throw everything in the blender with some water and blend for a minute or so.  I usually eat a salad about an hour after this shake.

      I have a good quinoa recipe.  Greek Quinoa with Avocados:

       

      • Cook quinoa (I cook it with vegetable stock)
      • Mix feta cheese, tomatoes, avocados, spinach and red onion.  Make the "dressing" by combining extra virgin olive oil (I use avocado oil for this) and lemon juice (same ratio), salt and pepper.  Combine the quinoa with the ingredients, add the dressing and combine.  Enjoy.  I like it hot but it can be made cold (it is a salad after all).  Great pre-long run meal.

        And this is one of my favorite vegetarian comfort foods.  You can serve it over brown rice, potatoes, quinoa, basically anything:

          My everyday hot cereal in the morning.  I make my own cereal mix but you can use whatever you like, I used to use steel cut oats, I like this better.

           

          Cook your cereal/oats to the directions on the box.  When ready add a bit of water and add the rest of the ingredients.  Season with salt and pepper and whatever else you like, sugar, cinnamon, I like blackening seasoning, really wakes up the oatmeal and I like more savory foods.  I usually eat two eggs to go along but its already got the right amount of runner's protien, good fats and lots of good complex carbs.

            Here's the link to the sweet potato and black bean enchilada recipe I mentioned on the other board.  I've made it several times now and it's always delicious.  Also, to save time, I don't roll up the enchiladas; just layer it like lasagna--it tastes the same and works much better for me because I use brown rice tortillas, which have a tendency to break when you roll them if they're not warm enough!

              Oh yay!  These are my FAVORITE cookies to make : Nutella cookies w/ seasalt sprinkles

              I used Dark Choc Dreams PB last time, and have also used a combination of unsweetened cocoa or carob powder and peanut butter to achieve basically the same effect but have it be less sweet.  I use Earth balance butter and sub applesauce for the eggs.   They taste awesome, even w/ the healthified version.

                a quick and easy recipe i use for a weekend lunch or late dinner after runs :

                 

                1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

                1/2 carrot chopped

                one medium stalk of celery, chopped

                very little chopped onion

                pressed garlic

                olive oil, enough to coat the pan

                 

                sweat until peppers and carrots are bright and not to tender. It usually takes at least 7 or 8 minutes over medium heat

                 

                add one can of canned salmon (i guess canned tuna would work but i cant stand the taste of it), a squirt of olive oiul, sea salt and pepper to taste.3-4 minutes stirring occassionally.

                I add a little grated manchego cheese (because i am a cheese addict).

                 

                toasted pita or by itself.

                    yeah the sweet potato's peaked my interest. Bought everything today and trying on Sunday night with corn tortillas but thinking of making an individual lasagne style in ramekins and freezing them

                      i made refried beans in the crock pot yesterday and put those into an enchilada casserole (I swear enchiladas aren't the only thing I eat!).  Beans were super easy:

                      2 c dry pinto beans, rinsed off

                      1 onion, peeled and halved

                      1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped

                      2 cloves garlic, minced

                      1/2 tsp sea salt

                      big pinch of pepper and cucumin

                      6 c water

                       

                      just throw it all in the crockpot on high for 8 hours, then remove the big chunks of onion that are left and mash it with a potato masher. I was really happy with how good these were, and they freeze nicely!

                       

                      ps. My iPad is acting weird and made all sorts of crazy typos on me with auto correct. I think I caught everything, but in case I didn't, sorry!

                          I wrote all these down! I'm going to add ingredients to the shopping list for today's grocery trip! I made a healthy protein-packed version of oatmeal cookies last night that turned out okay. They aren't as sweet or soft as store bought processed cookies but they make a good substitute. I'll come back and edit this post with the recipe as soon as I get back from the store. Smile

                           

                          Peanut Butter Banana Oat Cookies

                           

                          2 ripe bananas, mashed

                          1/3 cup peanut butter

                          2/3 cup applesauce

                          1 scoop protein powder (vanilla) * optional

                          1 tsp. vanilla extract

                          1 1/2 cup rolled oats or instant oatmeal

                          1/4 cup chopped nuts

                          1/4 cup chocolate chips *optional

                           

                          Preheat oven to 350*F. Mix banana mash and peanut butter until combined. Add applesauce, protein powder and vanilla extract. Mix until thoroughly combined. Add in oatmeal and nuts and mix. Add chocolate chips. Let dough rest 10 minutes. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto parchment covered cookie sheet and then flatten. Bake 20-30 minutes, cool 5 minutes. Store in an airtight container.

                            Joshlynn - great idea to have a post on food ! so for your post run shake what is the theory - is it that protein is better after the run (for muscle repair) and carbs are better before the run

                             

                            Also, can i also pose a question in the spirit of this forum- what food does everyone like before their long runs ?

                             

                            i like a banana or for a really long run - bagel with peanut butter

                              DTF - All I read is you want a 3-1 to 4-1 carb to protein ratio post run.  Mine isn't quite that but I eat dates during most of my runs which are straight sugary carbs so once I calculate that in I'm right in the range.  I recover much better now, I mean not even close compared to when I was using gatorade, gels and cliff bars.

                               

                              Pre-run I eat the hot cereal above, 2 eggs and a pot of coffee (working on cutting that down) but I need about three hours after I eat or I'm running with it in my throat.  When I run first thing I'll just eat some toast and jam but I'm not a morning runner

                               

                              Roll - No idea on the cleanseing, i don't quite understand it.  I have a good friend who does a juice cleanse twice a year.  She loses a bunch of weight during the cleanse and two weeks later she's right back to the same weight.

                               

                              Forgot to soak my beans last night so need to wait on my enchilada's for tomorrow :-(

                                2 cup rolled oats

                                1/3 cup brown sugar

                                1 tsp. baking powder

                                1/2 tsp. salt

                                1 cup berries

                                2 cup milk

                                1 large egg

                                1 ripe banana

                                3 tbsp butter, melted

                                1 tbsp vanilla extract

                                 

                                Preheat oven to 375*F. Grease 10 x 7" baking dish and place on baking sheet. In large bowl mix oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half of the nuts and half of the berries. In another bowl whisk milk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract. Put oat mixture in the baking dish and spread evenly. Top with berries, sliced banana, and nuts. Pour milk mixture over and gently shake to settle. Bake 35-40 minutes. Sprinkle with brown sugar before eating.
