From world-class marathoner and 4-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan and chef Elyse Kopecky comes a whole foods, flavor-forward cookbook―and New York Times bestseller―that proves food can be indulgent and nourishing at the same time. Finally here's a cookbook for runners that shows fat is essential for flavor and performance and that counting calories, obsessing over protein, and restrictive dieting does more harm than good.
Packed with more than 100 recipes for every part of your day, mind-blowing nutritional wisdom, and inspiring stories from two fitness-crazed women that became fast friends over 15 years ago, Run Fast Eat Slow has all the bases covered. You'll find no shortage of delicious meals, satisfying snacks, thirst-quenching drinks, and wholesome treats―all made without refined sugar and flour. Fan favorites include Can't Beet Me Smoothie, Arugula Cashew Pesto, High-Altitude Bison Meatballs, Superhero Muffins, Kale Radicchio Salad with Farro, and Double Chocolate Teff Cookies.

I have been researching different diets, trends, and meal plans for years. Michael Pollan's thoughts on food seem to resonate most with me as a whole diet (as in normal way of eating and not a temporary thing) that is sustainable and healthy. I am also a marathoner and like to see what athletes eat. Finally, Run Fast Eat Slow is a genesis of everything I believe in and hold important in one colorful and inviting place.
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.
Fabulous cookbook with great recipes & beautiful photos! One of the best parts (that I haven't seen in other cookbooks) is how each recipe has a purpose. For example "recovery snack" or "immediate energy boost" or for "speed-workout days". Well done Shalane & Elyse!
I love this book. The recipes are delicious (especially the Moroccan Lentil Salad with Cauliflower Couscous) and uncomplicated to make. You can also make a lot of these recipes in a rice cooker if you don't have access to a stove. The food leaves my stomach feeling good and keeps me energized for my training.
