7 miles to the tune of some serious chilly wind this a.m. It was a little bit of a shock to the body with the dip in temps but it still felt good to get it in.
So it has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe with you! I have been super slammed with work, running and such but I’ve still found a little time to play in the kitchen.
Here’s what you’ll need to whip up a colorful, tasty pepper in no time!
-Bell peppers (I like the red, yellow and orange varieties. The more colors the better!)
-1 serving of cooked ground turkey, chicken sausage or soy/veggie crumbles. Whatever your favorite protein source is!
-1 cup of cooked quinoa
-1/2 an avocado
-Fresh cilantro, goat cheese crumbles, garlic
-Salt and pepper to taste
Cut peppers in half and empty out the seeds to form a hollow shell. Mix the cooked meat and quinoa together in a bowl, along with garlic, cilantro and spices. Fill up each pepper with the mix and then bake in the oven on 400 for 20-25 minutes until the pepper is softened and cooked through. Top with avocado, goat cheese and more cilantro. Serve.
Switching gears a bit…this weekend I’ve signed up for yet another FUN race! It’s *just* a 5K…but that distance is always a good tune up for me since I log so many miles from week to week. Me and a friend scored a great Groupon deal so I figured what better way to celebrate my favorite holiday with a little racing!
Of course I also have another long run to squeeze in there somewhere so this weekend will prove to be another fun adventure.
Oh and I ran this race last year! You can check out the recap here. Hopefully it will not be as crazy hilly as before…I think they have changed the course a bit.
Are you running any fun holiday themed races this weekend?
