Now that my half marathon training is really progressing, I stay rungry. The monster inside my belly, who wants to eat everything insight, is usually not awaken until the day after a long run. But today he came out to play in full force.
So I started the morning by baking gluten-free muffins from scratch. I picked up the gluten-free mix from Stop & Shop, and it was really easy to make. All you need is six tablespoons of butter, one cup of milk (i always make with almond milk instead) and 3 large eggs (of course I use organic, cage-free). You can add any fruit or nuts, and I used organic blueberries. They were so tasty, I am happy I have lots leftover to take for breakfast.
So after indulging in those, and a caramel latte, it was soon time for my long-distance run. I had no motivation today and wish it wasn’t a long run day. I also wished I ran outside instead, but got on the treadmill even though I didn’t want to, so at least that is better than sitting on the couch (which I am enjoying doing now!)
It was really hard to complete 9 mile, and wasn’t feeling like myself. There were moments I really got into the groove of things, but I was just so tired. No runner should have to be subjected to the torture of running 9 miles on a treadmill in a basement with nothing to look at. Yeah, it was really boring, but I pushed through and got it done. I did have to walk for awhile so my time sucked, but I am so happy that I planned on doing it and completed it.
So of course right after, I became so rungry. I prepared a salad to take to work tomorrow, but my boyfriend was hungry too, so I decided to make a delicious dinner for the both of us since he wasn’t in the mood for a salad.
I saw this cool recipe for pizza muffins and just had to make them. And it is so easy to make.
Preheat your oven to 350 degree F. Place the crescents in the muffin slots and then pour on some tomato sauce. I use organic, this time from Nature’s Promise. Then sprinkle on some cheese. I opted for lactose free shredded mozzarella from Go Veggie! . My boyfriend wasn’t a fan of the fake cheese, but still ate a few. It’s probably only because I asked, but I love it.
Bake those babies for 13 to 17 minutes. Even though I know these rolls aren’t the healthiest thing to eat, if you love the way the dough breaks apart and love pizza, these are bite-sized pieces of heaven.
I defiantly deserved it after that run!
