Terrapin 5k and Music Fest Needs a Health Makeover

Written By: The Nutritarian - Aug• 09•12

Who offers runners and athletes cheesy quesadillas and sprinkled donuts to go with Magic Hat beer after a 5k race?  GROSS.  I traded my food ticket for extra beer and made a delightful feast at home that was satisfying and nourishing.  Here is the quick, healthy, and easy recipe replacement:


  • Lundenburg Elbow Rice Noodles
  • Portabella Mushroom slices
  • Fennel (fresh, cut into even, bite size pieces)
  • Fresh or frozen broccoli or any veggie you have in in the fridge (optional)
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Turmeric
  • Kosher salt


  1. Boil the water add noodles and a pinch or two of salt.
  2. After a minute or two, add the mushrooms, fennel, and broccoli or other veggies add immediately if it is raw broccoli since that would take longer to cook than spinach or frozen broccoli.
  3. Add one or two more pinches of salt.
  4. Mix half or entire cup of Fage Greek Yogurt, a pinch of salt 1/8 teaspoon of tummeric, a sprinkle of cayanne pepper and a few shakes of jalapeno flakes (use fresh ones if available for extra kick).
  5. Drain noodle and veggie mix and combine with yogurt sauce.
  6. Enjoy the most delicous and nutritious post race adult mac and not cheese indulgence.
