We're getting closer to the Nike Women's marathon on Oct. 20. I am so excited to run my first official half! In the meantime, here are a few things I ate this past week. Tried some new foods and got creative with other food.
First up, I tried a hot dog made with buffalo meat. I love buffalo meat because it's healthier compared to beef with lower saturated fat and lower calories. Buffalo is also high in iron and B12 with good protein. I've eyed these hot dogs in the meat counter at Whole Foods for awhile now and decided to finally get one and try it out. There is nothing artificial in the WF buffalo hot dog so to me it's more like a fancy sausage.
Of course, I could not eat my buffalo hot dog the normal way with a bun. I got all Top Chef and deconstructed my hot dog experience. I boiled the hot dog for 10 minutes and then sliced it in smaller pieces and mixed it with Sonoma Brinery Traditional Raw Sauerkraut, chopped onions, and mustard with a sprinkle of red chili peppers on a bed of mustard greens I got at a local farmers market for a mustard bump.
