Dinner, No Movie

It’s my favorite time of the week. And to enter into the Sabbath, and celebrate the end of the week, I decided to make myself a healthy, tasty dinner that would make appeal to my senses and still be running-fuel appropriate.

Earlier, I posted a list of foods that runners should eat and this meal hits some of the high points. Roasted root vegetables, baked chicken breast and sauteed vegetables.

Organic carrots, sliced into chunks
Red potatoes (lower glycemic index than Russet potatoes)
Tossed with sea salt, pepper, paprika and olive oil and roast in the oven, uncovered, for about 40 mins.
Chicken breast with jerk seasonings. Baked  in a covered dish for 30 mins and then remove the cover so it can get some color
Broccoli florets. Blanched in boiling water and then lightly sauteed with Portabella mushrooms.

And that’s it! Dinner is served! A few minutes of prep work and let the oven do the rest. And because one of the most important things about food is the taste, you’ll be happy to hear that… Yes, it tastes delicious!

Eat right, feel right, RUN WRIGHT! 

So, what’s on your plate tonight?

PS. See, Mom. I do eat!

  3. Looks so yummy and healthy! I just came from a birthday party picnic so health wasn’t the high point of that meal..

    I love when I have time to enjoy a relaxing meal – and I think you’ve inspired me to make some potatoes for dinner! 🙂

      Yeah for potatoes! I’d eat them at every meal if I could.
