I love simplicity, especially when it yields great results. I would like to think that this translates into the way I coach too, although I have to admit that it doesn’t always apply. I guess (as usual) it depends on the situation!
I have been making really simple dinners during the last week. I really enjoy cooking for others and this cooking for one thing is getting annoying… So keeping things simple seems to be the way to go right now. The ITU Sydney WCS race in on this weekend and after that Andrew is back for a few weeks, so it will be nice to have someone to cook for again, even if it just for a few weeks because I am going to Guelph for a week and Andrew will be traveling again for more races. Maybe the RTC Guelph athletes & coach won’t mind me using them as recipe testers though?! Besides, I need to earn my keep somehow :)
In somewhat related news, I will be done teaching and marking by the end of the month, so I will have a bit more time on my hands. Therefore, in addition to coaching related stuff, I will posting more sport science info and research (including sport nutrition) on my PT Performance Training blog. This site/blog will remain all about healthy recipes for athletes and active individuals, using whole foods – more practical stuff, while the other one will be more about science based practices, strategies and information. Just thought you should know!
OK, back on topic. Keeping things simple does not have to mean boring or lacking in flavor though! I was pleasantly surprised by a few new recipes I tested this week, and this is one of them.
Main ingredients are kale, yam, orange, chicken and cashew nuts. You can’t go wrong with all these ingredients mixed together, right? The cashews are there mostly for some crunch, so you can use another kind of nut or seeds if you like.
