Aut2Run 2019 and Great Post Workout Breakfast

Last weekend was one of my favorite events, Aut2Run, benefiting the Ventura County Autism Society. We had nice cool weather for this awesome event. I like to run distances where I don’t have to think about eating when running. :) So I don’t think I’ll ever be a marathoner. I do however, like to get out there and exercise for a good cause!

I love to make an veggie egg scramble post workout. My personal favorite is to sauté mushrooms and shaved brussels sprouts. I use 1 egg and 1 egg white.

Shaved brussels sprouts from Trader Joes or Gelsons (great convenience item!!) and sliced cremini mushrooms, sautéed until a little browned.

I like to put my egg creation over the top of some sturdy greens, chard, arugula, spinach and others. I picked these up at Gelsons,  Organic girl super greens . I also add a little avocado and a bit of pesto for that satisfaction factor. Addition of plant based fats helps keep us satisfied and helps to absorb those fat soluble vitamins.

Last but not least, pair it with a piece of whole grain toast and some berries for a delicious, nutritious and satisfying meal!
