Let's be real, we've all bought that cook book that has a few great recipes and that's it. I have plenty of them in my cabinet. Sure they've got a few great recipes but I largely ignore most of the book because they're total crap. Not with Run Fast, Eat Slow. I've tried several recipes from all of the sections and they have all been a hit! In fact, I made the mashed yams with sage brown butter for Thanksgiving and people were going nuts for it! There's a few things I like about this book.
1. It tastes amazing AND it's healthy. I love eating healthy but my husband is much more difficult to convince. These recipes pack in some awesome food that's great for you and tastes great. I have yet to make a bad meal from this book.
2. It isn't difficult. Don't you hate when you buy a cookbook that wants you to do some professional level stuff and you're like "uuuhhhh what?" Yeah, not this book. It's all very straight forward and easy to make.
3. Each recipe has a "story." Shalane and Elyse explain the purpose behind each recipe. It helps you understand why certain things were added, what makes the recipe great, and the purpose of the recipe. It helps you decide between recipes (because they're all sooooo good) when you're like "man I really need some energy." Boom, drink this amazing green tea green apple smoothie! Awesome awesome stuff.
I've bought several of these cook books and have gifted them to people because it's THAT amazing. I've never been this excited about a cook book or cooking. While I've always loved to cook, this cook book has made eating so much better. Go on ahead and order yourself a copy. You won't regret it.
The recipes are great, and the writing is inviting for foodies and newbies alike. I no longer need to search Pinterest alone for great recipes. This book is a great resource for me. It is well organized and entertaining. The authors tell us the reasoning for using whole foods, including butter and oils. They avoid the time consuming calorie and macronutrient counting. They make eating healthy more approachable for everyone. I can't wait to use this book over and over.
