But I can't find the correct spelling of portobellos anywhere!
As adapted from "ohsheglows"
- 6 portobello mushroom caps
- 1 cup tomato/pasta sauce
- 1 cup of chopped red pepper and yellow pepper
- 1/2 cup chopped vidalia onion
- 6 basil leaves
- 1 tablespoon red chili flakes
- 1 cup raw cashews (soaked in water for atleast an hour)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp rice bran oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Make the vegan cashew cheese ( puree the raw cashews, sea salt, rice bran oil, 2 leaves of basil, garlic clove, nutritional yeast, and lemon juice) and set aside. Now, preheat the oven to a broiler setting. Put parchment paper on a baking sheet. Wash mushroom caps and place with the concave part facing up (so you can fill it). Make sure to remove stems. Put 2-3 tablespoons of your tomato sauce into each mushroom and follow with the vegan cashew cheese. Put as much cheese as you want! I put a lot and it was soooo good! Next, add your chopped vegies, then top with minced basil and chili flakes. Broil in the oven for 15-20 minutes, just make sure to watch it. My oven broils at a very low temperature so it took a bit longer.
I planned on doing a 12 km run this morning before work--> It didn't happen. I woke up at 7, ate my overnight oats, then went back to bed :( . I went to work feeling so horrible that I didn't run. But I remembered that quote from Jillian Michaels, and when I got home I did the run. And I killed it!
Distance: 12.01 km
Average Pace: 5:31 min/ km
Average HR: 158
Max HR: 171
My last km was done in 5:02 ! Yaii! At the end of the run though, my stomach was really starting to ache. I think it had to do with my stomach bouncing up and down for so long. But I just had to keep running because I was still so far from home. I've really been feeling a lot better during my runs (except for this sore stomach) , my spirit is up, and I am starting to enjoy the run, and the peacefulness and alone time it gives me. I hope it can stay like this :)
Now for some core power yoga!
