Eat. Train. Race. Travel.

Welcome to Athlete Food - our continuous adventure to seek out healthy food around the globe and at our own dinner tables. Hope you are inspired to get on a plane or get out the plates and cook a healthy dinner tonight!

Athlete Food Lunch Club

The first meeting of the Athlete Food Lunch Club was held today.  The idea is a workout followed by a healthy meal.  The host gets to choose the workout and the food.  The guests have to come prepared to sweat and to eat.  We think it's the perfect combination!  Plus, it's a way to add a little fun into the routine of training.  Of course we might have to expand this to dinner and add some wine too!  Here is today's menu:
 

Our gracious host today was Sarah Piampiano, top American amateur in Kona,

fomer investment banker and brand new PRO triathlete. 

Note the wooden bowl in the pic below!

We flew through an 8 mile run at a little over 7 minute pace, took a trip to Trader Joe's,

and then Sarah whipped up her version of Chicken Provencale - chicken breasts in a white

wine and tomato sauce (see recipe below).  Bec assembled the cheese plate and Laurel provided some

chocolate and snapped some photos.

 

Chicken Provencale, from Williams-Sonoma Healthy Cooking 

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts halves (4-5 oz each)
   - Sarah's Note: I use chicken tenders or thinly sliced chicken breasts.   
1/3 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 cup - 3/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup peeled, seeded and chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried marjoram or oregano
 
In a large pan over medium heat, warm the oil.  When hot, add the chicken, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook, turning the chicken once, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes on each side.  Add the wine and bring to a boil.  Add the tomatoes and chopped marjoram or oregano and return to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low, cover partially and cook until the sauce has thickened a little and the chicken is throughly cooked (5-7 minutes).
 
Serve at once
