I had such a great runny/walky thinggy today! I strayed from the plan and went for 40 minutes instead of 20 plus was (when feeling up to it) running for longer than just 90 seconds. At one point I even ran for 5 minutes straight. Scoff if you will but for me it’s so great! And my typical knee/leg pain (that I’ve been to the doctor about and will tell you all about one day) was almost entirely iced and foam rolled away at the end! Hooray!
I have been craving beans and pasta for weeks! Who knows why these things happen they just do. Apparently so was Dani Spies http://www.danispies.com
Here’s what’s in this dish.
Whole wheat bow tie pasta
Best ever Brussel Sprouts
Raw, unpasteurized Cottage Cheese
Mint (Which wasn’t totally great)
The Brussel Sprouts ! Wow! Cut the core off your sprouts and then slice the sprouts pretty thinnish. Put oil (I used olive) in a fry pan over medium heat. Add your chilli flakes and give ’em a chance to get to know the oil a bit better. Add the sprouts plus minced garlic. Cook til soft/brown in spots. Seriously, the last time I made these I couldn’t even wait til I had something to mix them with. I ate half of them out of the pan and then wised up to what was going to happen and threw the rest in a bowl. Gahhhh! So good! So good! They almost taste like sesame seeds. Oh yeah – then throw everything else in the pan except the mint and cheese (save those til the end) let it all get hot and roasty then dig on in!
On a side note, can you believe I forgot to put that delicious looking coconut in my lumpy this morning? D’uh!
