OK, here is a wee challenge to also open up some prompts for variety as we all get guilty of getting stuck in a rut.
so, share a dinner that you have this week… it should be your basic, quick and easy healthy meal and if i can give some tips to make it better i will if you like. lets get sharing some ideas…
for example. today this was our dinner. i actually made the curry yesterday and there was plenty for two days and the salad was fresh tonight. we often prep meals this way to make when we do spent the time cooking, count. we dont have curry that often! usually it is vegetables and meat/ fish and some roots. so this was slightly different and very tasty.
to put this in training-recovery perspective. yesterday was the 2 hour SST, today was a recovery run (nothing mad, half an hour) and 1900m swim with speed work. a fun workout. My boyfriend who does full IM had a 2 hour run today and yesterday a 4 hour bike.
Beef and red lentil curry with hearty salad of textures.
Curry was cooked in the slow cooker at 110 for 2 hours after sauteeing the basic ingredients. it then cooked itself. red onion, garlic, ginger, massaman curry paste, red lentils, aubergine cut into cubes, stewing beef (not much), canned tomatoes, coconut milk. (so this meal has protein, vegetarian protein, healthy fats, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory support. FYI aubergine with the skin on is mega high in anthocyanidins).
salad: roasted sweet potatoes in small cubes, roasted asparagus, fresh rocket (arugula) leaves, shredded red cabbage, toasted pumpkin seeds (and some rice vinegar), some giant sultanas (taste yummy in salad and add some carbs), lime juice and spanish extra virgin olive oil.
balanced meal with protein, carbs, healthy fats, ample veggies and mega antioxidants from the deep purple, green and orange pigments… this meal was thrown together with no pre planning only do something with what you have attitude.
