This one is truly a gem. It makes for an excellent post-run lunch, or a snack, or even breakfast! It is recovery food and it is the final proof that it does not have to be boring or tasteless.

I love to cook and I love how running allows us to have good, tasty food most of the time – and the … Continue reading Smoothie time!
