It has been a while since my last post. Moving has been quite the 'project' and it has taken me until this weekend to finally (mostly) catch up on everything that had to be put aside as I packed up my life in Victoria and relocated to Vancouver. So, what have I been up to? A lot! I was in Montreal/Mont Tremblant for a week or so mid May to do bike fits. It was tons of fun, but a very packed schedule. Mont Tremblant is beautiful in the spring time, I can only imagine how pretty it must be as a winter wonderland...
Then, at the end of May, race season in BC 'officially' started with the Shawnigan lake triathlon. It was a proud day for me, with the Victoria crew representing well and the Vancouver RTC squad showing some great early season fitness with Carsten winning the Western Canada high school championships and Robert taking the overall sprint win. Both May and June have been very good racing months for the team, with several breakthrough performances - I will post everything on the PT Performance Training website sometime next week...
I am still getting to know Vancouver and the various training locations. Open water swimming is certainly different compared with Victoria! Jericho beach is pretty cool.
More training pictures and updates are posted on the facebook page, if you are interested in following along... Some BIG and AWESOME stuff coming soon to the Vancouver triathlon community! And now, a recipe. This past week, I have been thinking about how to make sweet stuff without using any sweeteners, of any kind. Not even stuff I normally consider OK in small amounts... (like coconut sugar or honey). I made this recipe this morning and it was fantastic. So, given the fact that I am finally adjusting to Vancouver life, I am back on the blogging train. Hopefully I will stay on it more consistently now :)
Goat cheese & Strawberry stuffed omelette
Yes, a sweet omelette. I had second thoughts about this one while making it, but after one bite - I was sold and I hope you will be too! Plus, it can be great after training! Just make the goat cheese/strawberry spread in advance and the rest will take less than 5 minutes to pull together... #realfuel (wait, do hash-tags work in blog posts?!)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp soft goat cheese
- 3-4 small/medium strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 1-2 small strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
- 0.5 tsp vanilla extract
- Place the goat cheese, quartered strawberries and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth. Set aside
- Heat a large non stick pan over low-medium heat (it really helps using a non stick pan!)
- Beat the eggs well
- Pour the eggs in the pan and spread a bit so they are spread evenly and thinly across the pan
- Let the eggs set. It will only take a minute or under
- Gently run a spatula on the side and under the omelette, then slide it onto a cutting board or large plate
- Spread the goat cheese-strawberry mixture on one half of the omelette, then top with the sliced strawberries. Fold over and serve!
