Reviews Run Fast. Eat Slow.

  • Sarah Stead
    This book is difficult to rate. Although it's a cookbook, I did read the content from front to back. If I were to break down my rating, I'd say 4 stars for the recipes, 2 stars for additional content, and 1 star for the writing style. 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 s...

    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 stil...

    I didn't know anything about this book before getting it from the library, except that a friend recommended it to me. Based on the title, I expected it to be about half advice on running, half advice on food. It's all food. That's not really a criticism of the book, because I probably could have read the back of the book to find that out, but more of a heads-up for anyone else. I find it hard to give this book a high rating. It doesn't really out...

    Excellent new recipe book geared toward clean eating for athletes, especially runners. I love the addition of the herbal remedies for various ailments, such as inflammation, upset stomach, common cold, etc. I am a firm believer that organic cures are the best for the human body. I find I heal quicker. I made the whole chicken recipe in less than 90 minutes with the cauliflower for dinner and it was fantastic. I found that all the recipes are simp...

    a cool book for athletes focusing on the runner. while there are no chapters on how to run faster it's under the concept that if you fuel yourself correctly then the speed will come naturally (or with a lot of hard work in training)haven't tested any of the recipes yet but to do like how each recipe gives you what part of training it is suited for ie speedwork, recovery, long run etc
  • Becky Fuller
    Lovely cookbook with what appear to be excellent recipes. If I attempted to do these recipes myself in addition to caring for my two small children I would ironically no longer have any time to actually run. Definitely something to aspire to though!

    Great tips and interesting recipes. Unfortunately I’m allergic to several key ingredients (soy, nuts, avocados) so I can only make a few recipes.
  • Gwen
    Nothing really groundbreaking, but I appreciated the authors' emphasis on "food as fuel" and that eating well can help with your training and some running-related ailments. (Caveat: I'm not a serious runner like the authors, so their needs are not necessarily my needs...) 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 t...

    I won this in a Goodreads Giveaway from Rodale Publishing.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.I really like the concept of this book - nourishing recipes for athletes. I'm not a foodie, ...
