I am adding a food section to TakesGuts2Run! What we eat is such a huge part of training and living healthy. To be honest, I have completely been slacking lately, eating crap! And I have been feeling the effects of it BIG TIME. So I will be adding to this section to help me get back on track, post some recipes to act like I know to how cook, and suggest products that I have found and love.
My goal is to eat MOSTLY organic, Non-GMO, real food. It has been really hard for me, but I am trying to cut out processed foods. It has been a struggle being someone who loves crackers (Goldfish, Cheezits, etc..) and working in an office where there are always snacks! I have been working on replacing products one by one to find organic alternatives to the brands I used to eat. My favorite organic find so far is Lundberg Organic Whole Grain Rice, which replaced my old chemical filled, though delicious, rice mix.
Check out how good these ingredients are for the Yellow Rice!
Ingredients: Organic Parboiled Brown Rice, Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Bell Peppers, Sea Salt, Organic Dried Onion, Organic Dried Garlic, Organic Dried Cane Syrup, Organic Turmeric, Organic Rice Concentrate, Organic Black Pepper, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Can't get much better than that for a boxed rice mix! They have a bunch of flavors and I have loved every one I have tried.
Here are the ingredients in my old favorite rice:
Ingredients: Enriched Long Grain Rice [Rice, Niacin, Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Folic Acid), Enriched Vermicelli (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Folic Acid], Whey, Vegetables (Carrots, Onions), Corn Starch, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Salt, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Chicken Fat, Corn Syrup (Dried), Cream Cheese (Pasteurized Milk, Cream, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes), Parsley (Dried), Spice, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Chicken (Dried), Sodium Caseinate, Natural Flavors, Disodium Inosinate Guanylate, Turmeric Extractive (For Color).

Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
