It doesn't take much to realize that I have not posted to this blog in about 4 years. That's a long time, right? Well, actually the past 4 years have gone by in a blink of an eye and these days my life looks pretty different. I have an almost 5 year old named Gracie and 6 month old Ruby. These little lovely's have my husband Jeff and me playing a balance act of family, work, and being an athlete. I wouldn't change it for the world.
I wish I could share and let you know the exact recipe for success ( there isn't one) but I can telyl you that one of the biggest factors for us keeping up on life and still being able to train and compete is good nutrition!
Fall is officially here and the cooler temperatures tend to lend us to warming dishes that are also known as comfort food. Traditionally speaking, comfort food is high in calories and has not so healthy fats. However, there is another way. You can still have nutrient dense meals that also satisfy an active lifestyle and the soul!
CREAMY SUN DRIED TOMATO
PARMESAN CHICKEN (NO CREAM)
For The Sauce:
*Substitute milk with almond, rice, oat, or coconut milk. Alternatively, if using cream in place of milk, do not add the cornstarch mixture. You won't need it.
**For a gluten free option, find GLUTEN FREE Cornstarch where available
And there you have it! I love this dish for a lot of reasons. It feels like a comfort dish but is truly a super high protein and low glycemic meal thats great for keeping your blood sugar stable in between training when you don't really want a bunch of simple carbs in your meal. I served this dish with steamed broccoli but any green veggie would do or a nice nutrient dense salad. YUM!
