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.
I love it because this is just the kind of nourishment runners (and athletes in general) need to keep going day after day. I love the author's philosophy about eating well and eating real food instead of counting calories.
I bought this book when it was first published and started telling my running friends about it. A few of them bought the book. They loved it. (When Shalane came to the Shamrock Sportsfest in Virginia Beach we were so excited to meet her!)
Then they started telling more of our running community about it. Now I feel like I know at least 20 people with this book. We even started a Run Fast Eat Slow cooking club! We have been getting together to cook the food out of the book to share and bring home!
I love the kale farro salad, the beet smoothie and the broccoli soup. However, that sweet potato cookie is the perfect thing to eat before a morning run. I'll eat one or two upon waking, then foam roll, and then I am primed for a good run! I look forward to cooking more from this great book!
If you are training for a marathon, as I am, then the purchase of this book is non-negotiable. You need this every bit as much as you need a comfortable pair of running shoes and breathable wick fabric. If the reward of Runners High Lasagna is not incentive enough to push yourself through 26.2, then nothing is. This book proves for once and all that eating healthy can be a joy, not a tribulation.
I read this book cover to cover and nearly all of the recipes sound like something I can weather. Some ingredients like bison (not available in the Middle East) and farro (not even sure what that is) I won’t be able to try but the lion’s share are readily available and I’m even making a list to go to their grocery store right now to start making changes. I liked that they said what could be frozen AND how to defrost it. I loved that they discussed runner ailments and the recipes that specifically target those ailments.
I heard about this book on the Run The Year (Run 2017 Miles in 2017) Facebook page as many were getting it as a Christmas gift so I gifted it to myself.
