TJ Tells It: Run Fast, Eat Slow Cookbook to Fuel My Journey

Post updated below on July 26, 2017.

Hi y’all,

I recently had the opportunity to meet the authors of Run Fast, East Slow, 4-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan and Chef Elyse Kopecky. Hearing how the book came about was very interesting.
The book has great recipes that I’m excited to work into my current fueling plan. Knowing that it shows how to eat the rainbow, eat full-fat dairy, and grass-fed beef makes me even more excited to adopt these recipes as part of my diet. I will update the post after I have tried some of the recipes.

If you have the book, comment and let me know which I should try! If you don’t have a copy, you can get it on Amazon here

Update (7/26/2017):

I tried the SUperhero Muffins, Sweet Potatoes Breakfast Cookies, Ginger Molasses Granola, and Sweet Potato Salmon Cakes. My ‘must try’ list is long and will be made very soon.

My favorite has been the Sweet Potato Salmon Cakes.  While I think it needs a bit more binder to hold together, they had a nice sweet but smoky and fresh taste. I will be making these again for sure!

The granola and muffins were very good as well. I substituted out the oatmeal for quinoa flakes due to dietary restrictions. It worked for all except the breakfast cookies. While the recipes came out well, I will have to make some additional adjustments because my system didn’t like the quinoa.

More to come very soon!

Telling you full-fat Greek yogurt will make you happy #onestepatatime,

TJ
