Run Fast. Eat Slow.
As a person on a restrictive diet due to health issues, and one who prefers homemade whole foods to packaged and processed ones, frequently making the same recipes gets old. The authors, who are both runners, have several unique ideas for combining nutritious ingre ...more
I find it hard to give this book a high rating. It doesn't really outline a specific dietary plan or give you definite ...more
I could not have found a more perfect cookbook that matches my own views on healthy eating. There is no shortage of healthy fats (including butter!), there are vegetarian recipes, there are meat recipes that are paired with a large doses of veggies,and best of all, they all taste amazing (I do usually add a bit more salt than they call for, but they do tell you to adjust seasoning as necessary). I use this book weekly if not daily and I was so lost witho ...more
Are you an athlete looking for recipes that will fuel your workouts, help you recover, and work to nourish and support your body? This cookbook is a wonderful collection of healthy recipes and tips from a collaboration between an Olympic athlete and a chef, who both know the importance of taking care of their hard-working bodies. While I personally work to steer clear of animal products, which this cookbook does use in some of the recipes, I still found a good stack of recipes that I can't wait...more
Because this was an advance copy, it didn't feature full-color photographs that will be in the final copy. For me, color photos are crucial, so the final product will benefit people like me - those who need vivid photos to entice the brain, eye and palate. I also need visuals to motivate me to cook.

Okay, I haven’t run for days, but there is still hope! This recipe book has inspired me to make the effort to get back at it.
While none of the recipes wow-ed me (I was underwhelmed at their side dish options and yet *another* recipe for "bone broth"), I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the sauces and dressings chapter. I'm in a bit of a ...more

So with out further adieu I bough the book. All of the recipes have labels on the pages: vegan, vegetarian, gluten ...more
To Look At: There is not much too look at. Some of the recipes have photos, which are pretty standard. ...more
Most of the recipes are straightforward and don't need an excess of prep work. The Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookie is one that you needed an extra step of baking your sweet potato ahead of time. Not a big deal and wow, what great flavor! Th ...more
Let me start by saying I hate cooking. Hate wouldn’t even be a strong enough word to be honest. However, wanting to run farther and faster, I’ve begrudgingly come to accept that I will have to do this in order to accomplish my goals.
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 t ...more
