RED Quick Bite #30: The Farmer at Maple Street Biscuit Company in Jax

RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend got off to a great start.  We decided to experience as much of the weekend as possible by completing the Booby Trap Challenge, which is the 10K, 5K, and Half Marathon during the weekend.  And who are we kidding, we love the bling!  When we first featured The Maple Street Biscuit Company, we had just completed the 10K and the 5K.  And we were HUNGRY!  So we had a few of the tasty dishes this rustic community-focused restaurant has to offer.

EAT

We were starving when we finsihed our last race, and we had heard great things about The Maple Street Biscuit Company.  Apple butter is my jam! Pun intended.  And The Farmer has tons of it along with tasty chicken, bacon, cheese, and a homemade biscuit to boot.  Guy Fieri perfected the hunch, but can I?

DRINK

No featured drinks in this episode, but The Maple Street Biscuit Company has tasty coffee as well as fountain drinks and more. 

THAT’S A WRAP!

RUN

In this episode we show you what we do when we are off the road and training for upcoming races.  During the week, there are strength training, yoga, swimming, and running days.  This happens to be a day when we practice cadence drills.  A running drill in Jeff Galloway's training programs at www.jeffgalloway.com, this drill helps you create quick turnover during run-walk-run intervals.

EAT

No, this week we are not indulging.  We make spring rolls, which are a low-calorie snack or lunch option.  

These spring rolls include:

Rice Paper Wrappers

Steamed Shrimp

Sliced Red Bell Pepper

Pre-Shredded Carrot

Sliced Hot House Cucumbers soaked in Rice Vinegar

Sliced Jalapeno

Cilantro Leaves

That is what was in our version, which was inspired by this recipe from Food Network .

DRINK

This week, instead of a cocktail or craft beer, we show you what we do to jazz up water to keep us hydrated.  We add fruit to our water and often use no sodium sparkling water to vary up our beverages.  To have more fun, we put the water in these Star Wars tikis from ThinkGeek. 

THAT’S A WRAP!
