So today I did it…I bit the bullet and printed out my faithful Hal Higdon full marathon training plan. I am still on the fence about running a full with my husband deploying, but after night’s like tonight with my teen, I think I may have some mama drama that will need to be left on the trails this next year. I asked my husband if he could pack up one of us to deploy with him, but that doesn’t seem to be an option. Lord help us this next year, LOL…
I already have a good base with 6-7 miles done easy, so I have some time to decide. We shall see…
Tomorrow we are having a “healthy food” potluck at work, so I decided to make my roasted broccoli and quinoa salad. This salad is SO easy that I made it WHILE cooking dinner tonight.
2 bags of your favorite quinoa, I use a brown rice/quinoa mix-cook according to package directions
2 cups of roasted broccoli-season with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and roast at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the edges are nice and golden brown
2-3 green onions chopped at a diagonal
The zest of one lemon
1/4 cup of gruyere cheese (I prefer mild), cut in small cubes
1 teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar
1 cup of toasted pecans
Mix all ingredients well, and finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.
My healthy dish is ready!
What’s your favorite healthy dish to pass for potlucks at work or with family? What’s your best release for teenage girl drama?
