I gotta admit I am wiped this week! I guess that’s to be expected this far into marathon training, I’m glad I’m tapering my long run this weekend before taking on the 20-miler next since I taking it a little easy resting pains here and there after Sunday’s 18-miler. And I’m starting to look forward to things settling down after the marathon … if they will before the holidays. I’m still keeping eats easy and fairly healthy with whole foods with the final intense mileage weeks and grabbed a simple stir fry sauce at Trader Joe’s last night – Island Soyaki.
I looked at other vegan sauces, but many had a lot of sugar and 100+ calories per serving which is a little crazy for a sauce. But this only has 25 calories per servings being mainly soy sauce and fruit juice with a tangy ginger flavor. I sauteed it with chopped broccoli, steamed spaghetti squash, and chopped tempeh for a fun, but healthy meal.
I’m also still on a huge potato kick using chopped fresh potatoes of any kind in simple dishes.
Tonight I simmered them in a wok with a little water with chickpeas, kale, and carrots seasoned with dill, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast for a simple 15 minute dinner.
And loved it! The potatoes still had a firm, hearty texture while being soft and it made for a satisfying dinner.
I had to share carrots and potatoes with the pups of course, Leela actually begs for more than Miko now when she was not such a fan earlier.
She’s finally adapting to a healthier diet and not being such a picky eater.
