      Ok everyone I  attempted to shoot some videos, not successful. With that said I am only giving you the recipes for right now. I am going to keep at it, and try to figure out this final cut software. I apologize for the infrequent posts. I am up to my face in life. This race on the 19th is all I can think about. Unfortunately I also have to work, pack, move, and have a full schedule of classes booked. Don't get me wrong, these are all good problems to have, it's just not leaving much time for anything else.  All of the following recipes are under 150 calories and include small amounts of healthy fat. They are from a knife skills class I recently taught.

I am planning on posting a training summation before the race and then a race report. I am off for a run in this lovely 20 degree weather, luckily I have my under armor ninja mask to somewhat protect my lungs. I guess mother nature had a case of ADD when I said, "The weather needs to cool down, I would rather run in 28 degrees than 70". 28 not 20 and it appears that snow has started to fall, at least there's that. I will talk to you guys soon.

For now here are the recipes:                                        

Dressing for cucumber salad
Yields 1/2 cup  
4 tbsp red wine vinegar
3 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp EVO

put everything into a bottle and shake vigorously until a temporary emulsion is formed

Cucumber salad
Yields 4- 1/2 cup servings

1 english cucumber
2 green onions
1/4 red onion
2 to 3 tbsp dressing

After removing the plastic from the cucumber, slice it into half long ways, then slice in half once more creating 4 long pieces. Remove the little nub from each end and angle your knife in a little and slice each piece on a bias. Remove the end from the green onion and slice the same way as the cucumber. Finally, slice the red onion very thin and toss everything together. Season with salt and pepper and mix in the dressing.


  1. Flip Video... I'll let you use mine when you get here.

  2. My camera shoots full 1080, about 35 min. But when I put a recipe together there has to be a lot of editing.
