This coming Saturday is one that we look forward to all year long, simply because it’s Blue Ridge Race Weekend. My siblings from Maryland and Pennsylvania come in with their families and we run, eat and relax together. Our little running club, The Buddy Syndicate (BS, for short) has trained for a year to run the Blue Ridge Marathon Relay and darn it, we were ready!
When the race was cancelled, we opted for the virtual race to be run on race day. Why not? We had no other plans! Then Roanoke City announced they were closing the greenway, so we made a collective last minute decision to run the race in advance of the closure.
Our friend Sue, who is an awesome marketer and graphic designer, created a masterful design for our commemorative shirts. Here’s the front. I love that each little ‘bug’ has it’s own personality!
And the back:
While COVID-19 is messing up everything; we haven’t abandoned our routine of eating real food, made in nature. Here is this week’s menu:
Almond Flour Pancakes with Chocolate Chips – These are for Mark, since I’m still intermittent fasting in the AM. We omit the stevia, add one teaspoon of vanilla, these chocolate chips and serve with fresh fruit on the side.
Veggie Packed Fried Rice – New Recipe! We use coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari as a substitute for soy sauce. Whatever sauce you use, reserve a little to drizzle on top when serving.
Easy Baked Enchilada Chicken – I couldn’t find green enchilada sauce without inflammatory oils, so I reduced salsa verde on the stove to thicken it.
Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – Crunchy and refreshing, this salad will be on repeat until the weather turns cool again!
Mediterranean Sheet Pan Salmon with Zucchini Noodles – We searched every store in town for the za-atar and found it at Kroger. I imagine it’s available at their sister companies in the US.
The Bomb Paleo Chili – Load this up with grated veggies – perfect for using up slightly-less-than-fresh veggies before they keel over entirely.
Nothing new to report in this department. The usual fruit, veggies, hummus and popcorn.
Strawberry Pina Colada – New Recipe! I don’t change a thing about this recipe. It has just the right amount of sweetness.
Have a wonderful week, everybody!
