From world-class marathoner and 4-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan and chef Elyse Kopecky comes a whole foods, flavor-forward cookbook that proves food can be indulgent and nourishing at the same time. This 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, 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.

Everything I've made out of this cookbook has been delicious, even when it seems like it shouldn't be. Fig Jam Cookies, made with whole-wheat flour, almond flour, tahini, sesame seeds, and coconut oil? Delicious! Moroccan Lentil Salad made with carrots, apricots, and olives? Delicious! Highly recommended.

Great mix of recipes that focus on nutrition and performance over weight loss or light versions of recipes. Most recipes use easily accessible ingredients and simple cooking techniques.
