Anyways............In my attempt to assist in Joe's marathon training, I've been trying to come up with different, healthy treats to make sure he gets the right balance of food. Joe used to be one of these people who thought a meal without meat wasn't really a meal at all. It's taken some time but I think he's finally coming round to my way of thinking.
So step up tomatoes stuffed with moroccan quinoa, which was really good actually! The quinoa, dried fruits and pine nuts were a good substitute for meat and the whole thing was light and tasty, if I do say so myself!
