I saw my coach last Friday at Imprint Pilates, and she informed me that I was looking a little gaunt in the face (*haha thanks coach! Don't sugar-coat it or anything*). So Carbs and Carbs Galore are on the menu. My ironman training has increased in mileage and intensity, so I need to make sure that I am fueling my body properly to get me through this long training cycle. So I am experimenting with some new recipes to ensure I am getting enough calories to keep up with my training and to keep my taste buds happy. This is one of my new favourite recipes.

 Udon Stirfry
Serves: 2-4 people
Cook Time: >20 minutes

Ingredients:
Udon Noodles - one pack per person
1 pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 cup of cremini mushrooms, chopped
1 leek, chopped
1 cup of spinach
2 tbsp fresh chopped parsely
2 green onions, diced

Sauce: 
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Scriacha Hot Sauce
1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely grated

Directions:
1. Add 2 tbsp of EVO, onion, leek, and garlic to a large pan. Cook down, and then add the mushrooms. Cook on medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes, or until the mushrooms soften. Reduce heat.
2. Bring water to a boil in a separate pot, and add the udon noodles. The brand I use has the noodles per-portioned, so I use one package person. Typically only takes between 5-10 minutes to cook.
3. Mix together all of the sauce ingredients and add to the mushroom mixture. Bring sauce to a boil and add the spinach, parsley, and green onions.
4. Top noodles with sauce and serve.
