My Family Recipe Rocks Episodes
Runners Share Healthy Vegetarian Recipes
Corine and Danae find joy in concocting healthy recipes by substituting things like butter and sugar with nutritious ingredients that help keep the waistline thin. These two friends enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle that's not only centered around the kitchens but in marathon running as well.
The pair ran their first marathon together a few years ago and they have been doing it ever since.
"It is a stress reliever for me. It is a way to stay healthy and get exercise. It is a way for me to set goals for myself and strive to be able to meet those goals," said Danae.
Corine showed Joey how to make her vegan chili recipe. She has been making it for the last 12 years and she has never met anyone, including meat eaters, that hasn't liked the dish. Corine uses her homemade seitan, which is a vegetarian meat substitue, in place of the more commonly used ground beef in her chili. After you add all the ingredients, you need to let it simmer for two to four hours. But it is worth the wait!
Danae's recipe for black bean and corn salsa salad was passed down from her mom. It was something that she grew up eating. The dressing that adorns this salad is so simple, yet so flavorful.
For the finale, the ladies make an irresistible layered trifle featuring vanilla pudding, raw vegan brownie and peanut butter coconut whipped cream. It's a guilt-free dessert!
