Another great recipe from our friend Jason over at CookTrainEatRace!
Homemade tortilla wrap with red cabbage, green pepper, white onion, chickpeas, fire roasted tomatoes and garlic. Avocado and Brussels sprouts on the side.  Delisch!!!

1/2c of whole wheat flour, 5 Tbsp water, 1/4c chickpeas, 1/2c red cabbage, 1/2 fire roasted diced tomatoes (I used sprout's)' 100g green bell pepper, 100g white onion, 100g Brussels sprouts, garlic to your liking, 75g avocado

1- in food processor add flour and turn on. Start dribbling the water in until the dough starts to come together. It will create a ball in the food processor.
2- remove dough and roll out fairly thin.
3- place rolled out dough on Pre-heated skillet. Allow to cook until no longer raw but not hard. About 3 minutes.
4- julienne the onion and bell pepper. In Pre-heated pan add in all the vegetables, chickpeas and cook for about 5-10mnutes until tender but not soft.
5- toward end of cooking process add in garlic.
6- as vegetables are softening place your wrap on a large plate and then spoon vegetable mixture into center of wrap.
7- lift one end over the vegetables and pull toward you. Fold insides and the roll away from you.
8- on a hot panini pan place wrap and allow to form grill marks. About 3-5 minutes.
9- as wrap is toasting place the split Brussels sprouts in a hot pan to brown.
10- once all is done place on plats. Sprinkle sriracha over the Brussels sprouts and add sliced avocado.
Please note that I do not use oil in my cooking.

Alexa is very excited to have qualified and been selected for the 2012 Badwater 135 miler ultramarathon, commenting: "As one of the youngest female contenders in the history of Badwater, I am proud to carry the torch for my coach Lisa Smith-Batchen and use the race to raise money for Sister Mary Beth Lloyd and the Dreamchaser Foundation.  Knowing that I can use my long distance running ability to raise awareness for a cause even greater than the race keeps me focused and motivated."

Inspiration Corner

With the Olympics around the corner we thought it would be appropriate to draw some inspiration from the great Jesse Owens.....

 "We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort."

-Jesse Owens
