5 Meatless Meals to Fuel With this Fall


It’s September which means that fall is fast approaching and so are the cooler temps and with cooler temps comes comfort food cravings too especially when you’re in training mode. 

Instead of settling for something unhealthy when you get hangry/rungry, make one of these super easy meatless and gluten free dishes to fuel your next run or workout. 

Meatless and Gluten Free Dinner and Lunch Recipes to Fuel with this Fall

Creamy Sweet Potato Pasta

Sweet Potato Pasta {gluten free, vegan}

Looking for the ultimate carboload? Look no further than this creamy sweet potato pasta.  Made with gluten free elbow macaroni and covered in a sauce made out of sweet potatoes without all the dairy, it is the perfect way to store all the carbs so you can run like a champ on race day. 

Spinach & Artichoke Pasta

Dairy Free Spinach and Artichoke Pasta {Gluten Free}

If you’re craving something more comfort food-like but you don’t want to wreck your stomach or break the calorie bank then this Spinach & Artichoke Pasta will hit the spot.  Made with dairy free cream cheese and a splash of wine, it tastes naughty but it’s not! Keeps your waistline and your tummy happy AKA win-win! :)

Dairy Free Fettuccine Alfredo

Dairy free alfredo pasta

Think you need dairy to make Alfredo sauce? Think again.  Since pasta dish is made with coconut milk instead of cows milk, it’s free of dairy and other common tummy trouble causing ingredients meaning that you can “indulge” without paying the price or sacrificing taste! I would recommend swapping out the broccoli for some fresh peas if you’re going to enjoy this the night before a race just to ensure no bloating or stomach discomfort.

Easy Vodka Alfredo Mushroom Penne

Easy Vodka Alfredo Pasta {gluten free, dairy free}

This is another Alfredo recipe but with a bit of a twist.  To give the dish some extra flavor, a splash of vodka is used.  Don’t worry, the alcohol burns off but it does leave behind some serious deliciousness that really takes the Alfredo flavor profile to a whole new level. 

Spicy Thai Cauliflower Fried Rice

If you prefer your pasta with a bit of a kick and know that your stomach can handle a little spice then this Spicy Thai Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry is for you! A mix of veggies with curry spice and riced cauliflower is a yummy way to fuel if your taste buds like a bit of sass!
