For the Fitness Buffs

Today we have our first guest recipe submission, and anyone who's ever started a new blog will be able to tell without looking who it's from.

Bingo! Mom.

I thought about calling her the Chickenless Hen or something, but "hen" sounds offensive, so it's just "Chickenless Chick's Mom" for now. Everyone say, "Thank you, Chickenless Chick's Mom."

A word of warning about this recipe... it's not for your average twenty-minutes-on-the-treadmill-with-the-AC-blasting-in-your-face-the-whole-time morning workout. It's for a chickenless workout, which consists of spending at least an hour engaged in vigorous, sweaty exercise. I cannot be held responsible for your skyrocketing cholesterol in the event that you eat this stuff under any other circumstance.

Breakfast Spaghetti


Olive oil

About 1 cup leftover cooked spaghetti or rice

1 whole egg

¼ to ½ c egg whites

Soy sauce

Cider vinegar

Sprinkle of turmeric


Whip egg and whites with about 2 tsp each of soy sauce and vinegar, sprinkle in turmeric. Use more condiments the more you are going to sweat. Experiment!

Heat pan with a little olive oil, sauté spaghetti or rice.

Pour egg mix over spaghetti, cook until set on bottom. Cut in half or quarters with your spatula and flip each portion to brown on the other side. Makes 2 large servings or 4 small – eat prior to workout and save some for second hour of [exercise]. Do not keep out in heat more than 2 hours. Needless to say the more organic the ingredients, the better.

Note: The above picture was taken of this recipe being executed in the same style as the baby quiches from my previous post; the original looks more like a big ole spaghetti pancake.

And now, surprise! A bonus Chickenless Chick's Mom Original Recipe...

Homemade Sports Drink

This came about because I was shocked that my orange Gatorade powder contained partially hydrogenated soybean oil and yellow #6. L


Per 24 oz insulated bottle:

¾ to 1 cup orange or pineapple juice

(The juice contains the potassium and sugars you need for cramp control and energy - experiment with how strong you need your drink.)

1/8 tsp sea salt

(1/8 tsp salt per hour works for me when it’s hot out. Be chickenless! Experiment with proportions.)

1 tsp organic vinegar

1 tsp lemon

1 tsp honey


Fill with ice and water. Shake REALLY well. Saving a mouthful of salt for last sip is NOT yummy.

Beat the eggs. Whip the cream. Show no mercy.
