Orange, Ginger, & Turmeric Roasted Caulifower with Neomega Oil

After testing out the avocado oil last week I was dying to get my hands on Neomega's Avocado Oil infusions. I had tried quite a few of the options at a tasting and was in love! I had a sample bottle of the basil infusion which, having recently returned from Italy, was right up my alley. I could use it for a caprese salad, drizzling it over the fresh cheese and sliced tomato, or I could use it in a nice pesto, so many possibilities! But what I most interested in trying was the Orange Ginger Turmeric Infusion. Ginger and Turmeric are great in reducing inflammation and aiding in digestion, two things runners must have! This recipe was my first test and this is out it turned out!

Lime Coconut Curry with Neomega Avocado Oil

Finally back in the kitchen! After traveling for most of the last 2 months I jumped at the chance to sample some Neomega Avocado Oil at a tasting in downtown Raleigh. Being home I was ready to get back in the kitchen to try some new things so when I heard about the tasting I had to be there. But really all you had to say to me was avocado and I was sold. After running my first marathon in Indy last year I came home wanting only 2 things…a gluten free monster cookie and a bowl of guac. I missed out on the monster cookie but I did have a whole bowl of guacamole to myself...but that’s beside the point, finding avocado oil is just another way for me to get my dose of healthy fats from avocado!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi in a Sage Brown Butter Sauce

Having sweet potato gnocchi in a sage brown butter sauce sounds like something that would be reserved for a fancy italian restaurant but it's actually something quite easy to make. Easy and quick so it can be a healthy option on a busy night. Now that Nuovo has made a gluten-free gnocchi available in stores, I don't have to go through the hassle of making it from scratch. Plus using grass-fed butter with the recipe helps me up my intake of healthy fats. This whole meal took me about 10-15 minutes to bring together. The hardest part was just getting the timing right! The gnocchi cooks in seconds and the sauce only needs a matter of minutes. The longest step is probably chopping and preparing the kale salad! Enjoy!

Gen-UCAN Banana Pancakes

Lately I have been on a mission to make UCAN not only a drinkable pre-workout, post-workout, or general snack, but an edible one as well. I started with some simple UCAN Peanut Butter balls which I eat as a snack or pre/during run fuel. I then modified a new favorite banana pancake recipe by Cookie & Kate and this was the result!
