1 medium eggplant
1 bunch broccoli or 2 c. frozen broccoli florets
1 bell pepper (orange or red)
1 onion, diced small
1 garlic clove, diced
1 tbsp ginger, grated or diced
2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
1/2 cup edamame (optional)
1 cup quinoa, dry
2 cups water
1 pkg firm tofu*
1/2 cup edamame
2 tbsp teriyaki sauce
1/2-1 tsp chili garlic sauce
1 tbsp peanut satay sauce
1 tbsp braggs liquid aminos or lite soy sauce
*Feel free to substitute ~5-6oz meat of choice
Boil 2 cups of water in a small pot. Add the quinoa and simmer until water is absorbed and quinoa is fluffy. Set aside.
Divide up your tofu into 1" cubes. Saute over medium high heat until golden, stirring occasionally to brown all sides then set aside. Meanwhile, dice up your broccoli, eggplant, pepper. Warm frying pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil or coconut oil. Add your onion, garlic and ginger and saute for ~1 min. Add your remaining vegetables and saute about 5 minutes. Add your sauces and tofu and saute 2-3 more minutes to allow the flavors to combine and veggies to soften. Serve over a bed of quinoa and enjoy! Yields 4-5 Servings.
Portion size tip: I use anywhere from 1/2-1c. quinoa with 1c. veggie mix depending on my appetite :)
Time saver tip: Cut up the veggies and cook the quinoa in advance to cut down on cooking time for busy nights!
Hopefully I'll have more recipes to share in the coming weeks! Stay warm friends!

Another year has flown by, which means it's time to sit back and reflect on the past season. It has been a season of challenge in many regards, and most definitely not the season I had hoped or planned for. Thinking back to my coaching meeting in January, coach Jim and I had discussed taking things to the next level and I set some pretty high goals for myself. That remained the plan through June, until I through a complete 180 by dropping Chattanooga and deciding to focus on my health. I can vividly remember that day, sitting next to the pool after a short workout when coach asked if Chattanooga was still in the cards. I don't remember whether or not I actually responded, but I do remember the emptiness and defeat I felt in that moment knowing in my heart that the answer was no. I consider myself a "fighter"... being Italian makes me stubborn to the core and I am very loyal to the commitments that I make. However, in that moment God was calling me to let go of my own personal plans and trust in Him instead. As humbling and difficult as it was to walk away from Ironman training this past season, I'm incredibly glad that I did.Hearty Miso Soup
