Hide (but Eat!) Your Veggies


Well, I had another somewhat sad showing of a run tonight.  I ran 5 miles but felt super sluggish.  I just swear it is that it was 70+ degrees again that was killing me.  I don’t know what I’m going to do when summer hits for real.

Isn’t it true that I saw some kind of ice-hat type of ingenious thing somewhere?  I swear a guy had one at the Badwater Ultra Marathon in Death Valley.  I like to watch shows about stuff like that 🙂 Maybe I could get crafty and make one.  I think the cold drips would be the best part!

When I got back I decided, as usual, that there’s no better way to get past a bad run and ready for tomorrow like something yummy!  I went to Trader Joe’s today and found a bunch of stuff I hadn’t tried before and decided to throw some of it together somehow to make something delicious.  I went risotto as it is always so good, and somewhat easy to hide vegetables in (ssshhh don’t tell my boyfriend there was kale in his risotto).  So yes, I made risotto that had kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, carrots and shaved broccoli stems in it.  It also had Parmesan so I’m not completely killing how risotto should be.  Plus I found a bag of good looking shredded parmesan, so less work for me. Yay!

I put together a little pic of some of my new ingredients, what the risotto looked like cooking, and the finished cheesy product. mmmmm.photo-4

I had a nightcap of Vanilla bean ice-cream with chocolate syrup and milk (I do kind of a make a milkshake in a cup and smash it all up) and it was just perfection.

How do you get all your veggies?

Any recipes that hide them especially well? (and are kinda easy?)
