Marathon Training & Raw Food

Mile 4.5 water break!

Mile 4.5 water break!

Just had to share that last weekend I had a great solo run – 13.2 miles (that’s a half marathon!!) on a beautiful, dirt, hilly trail. I was running VERY slow, but I had a great time and it was FUN! Barcelona Marathon, I’m on my way!

On another note, I tried Kari Carr’s Mediterranean wrap recipe. This was my version of the cashew cheese:

Throw the following into a blender and blend until cheesy (consistency of hummus):

  • 2.25 cups of raw, unsalted cashews (I didn’t presoak because (a) what does that even mean? (b) why would one do it? and (c) who has the time?
  • 1 cup almond milk (I used almond milk instead of water because I thought, why not?)
  • handle of Italian parsley
  • sprinkle of chia seeds (they’re apparently good for you and give you energy, so this was another addition to Kris Carr’s recipe)
  • sprinkle of salt & pepper

I put the “cheese”, black olives, sundried tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds, onto collard greens for a super yummy (trust me!), healthy lunch. 🙂

My super yummy wrap! :)
