Fishy Recipe friday

This morning, school was delayed 2 hours so I definitely slept late. I really wanted to run, but the 30 degree weather didn’t sound too appealing.

Breakfast

Instead of running, I made myself a yummy protein pancake. I love these so much! I first found out about them from Sarah. And now I just love them so much!

On top was Greek yogurt, almond butter, and stevia mixed together. It’s a lot tastier than syrup or just almond butter.

Lunch wasn’t anything special because I was short for time and threw some vegetables together and a boiled egg. Not picture worthy.

Workout

When I got home from school, I came home, put my running clothes on, and headed out into the 55 degree weather and ran an amazing 5 miles in 45 minutes. Quite proud of myself.

I warmed up a mile (10:30 pace always) then tried to run between 8:45-8:20 pace. By the end of my 5 miles it all averaged out to 9:00 minute pace. Happy Audrey.

Dinner

Okay, let’s get to the good stuff! I am making clean and delicious salmon cakes. I love these! And the recipe is from Kath so check it out here.

I changed it up a bit so here’s what I did:

Ingredients

  • 2 14oz cans of salmon
  • 4 TBSP bread crumbs or flax seed
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 TBSP Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp spicy brown mustard

Directions: Preheat oven on low broiler. Mix everything in a big bowl. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Make cakes/patties out of the mixture and you should get about 12 according to how big/small you make them.

I love salmon so much! If I could eat it all the time, I would. I like fish in general, but salmon is definitely my all time favorite.

Okay, that’s the end of that deliciousness.

I’ve got a planned long run of 10-11 miles tomorrow and will get back with you on that plus details of my upcoming race which is exactly 1 month away from yesterday! Eek!


Question of the Day

Do you like fish? What’s your favorite type?

Anyone got a race coming up?
