Week #1: NYC Marathon & Vegan Recipes

About a year ago, after reading Rich Roll’s Finding Ultra, I switched to a vegan diet.  I’m not super religious about it but I don’t consume milk or dairy products, including eggs, and don’t eat meat, but already having been gluten-free for the last five years or so – and my life being made so […]

Cheating on Chipotle

One of my family’s favorite eating spots, particularly after a track meet, is Chipotle.  The food seems fresh and I’ve been able to order gluten-free food easily: get a burrito bowl.  Now that I’ve adopted a vegan diet, Chipotle is not quite as fun.  The vegetable burrito bowl is okaaaaaaay, but it’s not the same […]

Ok, it’s maybe not the greatest name for this recipe but the name captures the unusual character of this dish. I adapted a recipe I found online […]

Vegan Fresh-a-cini Protein Delight

Ribbons of raw zucchini and carrots play the role of the flat fettucine noodles; marinara sauce (simple: Hunts Garlic and Herb) replaces the cream-based alfredo sauce, and the protein punch comes from red quinoa and raw cashews. My own creation. Steps: 1) Start the quinoa (keen-wa) in the rice cooker (1 cup quinoa, 2 cups […]
