Best Post-Run Meal Ever

I haven't talked about running much lately. That's because I haven't run much lately. My life's been consumed with yoga, cookies and sewing my wedding dress (an update on that later!)

For those of you that miss my running posts, unfortunately, this post isn't about running. So, I'm sorry. Hopefully you won't mind much though, because if I know anything about runners, I know they love to eat....and this post is about food!

During training for the Cleveland Marathon, Brandon and I would make it a habit to go to the farmer's market on Saturday before or after our long runs and get a heap of Ohio City Pasta. Then, we'd take it home, cook it up, add some sauteed veggies and olive oil, throw it in a bowl and go to town.

We did that every. Single. Week.

Even though we're no longer doing 20-mile training runs, we still go to town on a bowl of Ohio City Pasta. Worth it!!

You can definitely play with the veggies that you add to the pasta with this dish. The best part is, it's quick and easy so you can quickly replenish those carbs after your run. This particular version is loaded with good stuff; kale, mushrooms, olive's a super macrobiotic meal that's' got everything you need if you're a runner. Carbs. Fat. Deliciousness.
