After a long run or any other sort of workout it’s important to feed your body what it needs. After a long run for example it’s important to replace lost electrolytes and protein exercise within 30 minutes of the activity. Greens also provide a nice alkaline food to reduce acidity in the body. High quality olive oil is full of anti-oxidants and vitamin E and has been shown to prevent heart disease, cancer and diabetes!
I have found that a perfect recipe for this is to combine eggs and spinach in a tasty recipe that fuels your body up after a workout. I call it the spinach egg recovery lunch. Here is the recipe:
- 2 to 3 eggs depending on your protein requirements
- a really generous fistful of fresh spinach
- organic salsa of your choice
- salt & pepper
- a few drops of hot sauce (optional)
- 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
Easy 5 Minute Prep
Scramble the eggs and pour them in, immediately throwing your big handful of fresh spinach leaves on top. Don’t be shy with the amount of spinach! It’s really to taste so put whatever quantity you like. Stir like crazy and remove as soon as the eggs solidify. Don’t over cook the eggs to rubber. Remove from heat after only a minute and a half or when the eggs become solidified but not dried out.
Put it on a plate and use sea salt and pepper to season. Spoon some organic salsa on top and maybe a couple of drops of hot sauce if you like it spicy! That’s it…you are done!
