Coach Lora Erickson: Lettuce Explain Podcast Guest

As you might remember, last month I participated in the Oceanside 70.3 Ironman event.  It is always so enjoyable to get away from the cold of Northern Utah and enjoy warmer temperatures.  While I was there I was able to visit one of my long time friend and she invited me to be interviewed on her new podcast.  I was so excited to participate and talk about my triathlon experience.  My friend and her friend, both dietitians, started the Lettuce Explain podcast and cover great nutrition and fitness topics.  It can be found on iTunes, Stitcher Radio or Google Play.  I was interviewed for Episode 008 which was released today.  Here’s a link if you’d like to listen.  It was so much fun!

Gluten Free Protein Energy Bites – Courtesy of Celiac Runner

Energy Bites (gluten-free)
Makes 15-20
Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey or agave
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1 cup gluten-free oats
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter, honey, and vanilla in a medium size bowl.  I find it easier to combine if I melt the peanut butter and honey first.  Add shredded coconut and gluten-free oats to mixture.  Stir to combine.  I set mine in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes before adding in the chocolate chips; otherwise, the chocolate chips melt if you chose to melt your peanut butter and honey.  Once cooled, add chocolate chips and roll into 1 inch size balls.

These are the perfect snack to fuel you for a workout or get you through the day!  I often eat these before a race.  They freeze great so I can keep myself stocked up for a couple of weeks!

Blonde Runner Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

My good friends and family that know me well know that I love pizza. It is absolutely one of my favorite foods of all time! I’m always trying to find ways to make it a little healthier and have experimented with many homemade pizzas. I have always wanted to make cauliflower pizza crust and I finally got around to it. It turned out really good. My family couldn’t even tell it was cauliflower! 

Here’s the recipe: 

First start with 2 cups of cauliflower finely chopped (I used my Blendtec but a food processor would work great too). I microwaved it for 4 minutes until it was soft. Then I put it in a kitchen towel and rang it out to get all the moisture out of it. Next I added one egg, approximately a 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and some seasoning (garlic, oregano, basil, chives, about a tablespoon each). Mix well with your hands and spread out on a pizza stone. Bake on 450° until golden (about 11-15 minutes). Then top with sauce and your favorite toppings and bake for another 7-9 minutes, or until done. Cut into slices and enjoy. The good news is it is also gluten-free so my celiac friend could enjoy it with our family too.
