    One of the more nerdy things about me is that I love reading a good cookbook. Seriously, sitting down and reading cookbooks cover to cover-highlighter in hand, ready with a sticky note and grocery list is one of my favorite pastimes. Mason gave me this one for Christmas and I devoured it (see what I did there?) in just a couple days. Most people know Shalane Flanagan's name because of her worldwide marathon success (and being the first US female to with the NYC marathon in 40 years), not because One of the more nerdy things about me is that I love reading a good cookbook. Seriously, sitting down and reading cookbooks cover to cover-highlighter in hand, ready with a sticky note and grocery list is one of my favorite pastimes. Mason gave me this one for Christmas and I devoured it (see what I did there?) in just a couple days. Most people know Shalane Flanagan's name because of her worldwide marathon success (and being the first US female to with the NYC marathon in 40 years), not because of her nutritional and culinary skills. But in this (and her previous cookbooks), she teams up with Elyse Kopecky to deliver several hearty morning meals to fuel our bodies before we take on the day. The first third of the book reads like a memoir, with personal tips for implementing routines and stocking your kitchen/pantry. It's honest and peppered with little pointers. I love the categorical recipe index (found on page 34-35) with things like: cold and flu-boost immunity, chronic inflammation, sore muscles-recovery, digestive ailments, low energy/mood swings, hydrate smarter, and others. They also provided a seasonal breakfast meal plans (which look so perfect for each season!) and a 14 week marathon training plan with plenty of injury prevention and race-prep tips. Perhaps what I love most about this cookbook is the emphasis on EATING!! Sounds silly, right? But as a person who grew up in the fat-free obsessed 80's and 90's, I was raised with very unhealthy (and inaccurate) information about food. As someone who only saw thing like "real butter" in our kitchen during Christmas Eve meals, it's been so eye opening to learn the benefits of fat in foods. As Elyse says in "Eat Fast, Cook Fast, Eat Slow", "...a diet rich in whole food fats (even saturated fat) is essential for a healthy metabolism, balanced hormones, and satiation- all of which prevent weight gain. Nourishing fats are essential for brain function. Studies show that fat helps prevent depression, balances our emotions, and improves concentration." Flanagan and Kopecky aren't afraid of incorporating fat into these healthy recipes and I love that. Shifting that mental idea from "Diet and exercise" to "Fuel and train" has been life changing for me-- and this book definitely hammers that idea home! I haven't tried many recipes yet (just got this less than a month ago!) but here are my faves and some that I can't wait to try. *Superhero muffins * Popcorn trail mix * Crispy rice peanut butter bars * Breakfast Power Bowls * Basic black beans * Savory red lentil oatmeal * Sheet pan brunch * Lemon electrolyte water * Pumpkin pear butter * Marathon Mocha Anyone else out there LOVE to read cookbooks as much as me? I'll post a review of Run Fast Cook Fast Eat Slow soon!!

    I usually try out cookbooks through the library. Too often I try 1-3 recipes in a cookbook and then neglect the rest of the content! I needed to step up my everyday, take it to work breakfast repertoire. So I pre-ordered Rise and Run having loved their first two cookbooks. (I know the ginger molasses granola from Run Fast Eat Slow by heart!) I set the goal of try all 24 of the SuperHero Muffin recipes in Rise and Run. I really love that there are savory options as well as sweet. So far my favori I usually try out cookbooks through the library.

So far my favorites have been apple cheddar and sweet potato kale. The coconut pineapple and pumpkin streusel were great sweet options. The homemade breakfast sausage is terrific too. The recipes are very easy to follow and don't need any special equipment and are pretty much made with pantry staples. I do wish weights were included for the dry ingredients especially for the baked goods. I went to the King Arthur Baking site and wrote in the weights equivalents for all the recipes so it's faster to put together the muffin recipes with a scale. I also wish the recipe index was more inclusive of ingredients, not just titles. For example, it would be great to see all the muffins that use sweet potatoes to make picking a recipe easier.

    This is part training recommendation and programs, part commentary about juggling family and training, and part cookbook. I have all of Shalane and Elyse’s books and constantly go back to each one.

    Another fantastic cookbook in the series! I’ll be coming back to these three books over and over and over.

    For elite runners looking for additional muffin options.

    SUCH A GOOD COOKBOOK AND MORE! I’ll be as fast as Shalane if I eat all the Superhero Muffins right? Plus her training plan! Sleep tips! And recipes for various health concerns/ experiences. I’ve loved everything I’ve baked and cooked so far and have other recipes lined up. Clean eating and fuel for movement at its finest.

    Can I give 6 stars? This is how I aspire to eat! I cook from the authors’ other two books all the time. So many more nourishing recipes that satisfy all the cravings but provide you with lasting energy. Geared for runners but very beneficial for anyone that is active and wants to treat their body right.

    I’ve made several of these recipes now, and I confidently say that this is one of my favorite cookbooks ever! My favorite recipe has been the apple maple butter baked oats, but all the muffins have also been very good. I was skeptical of the vegan red velvet ones, but they were delicious! I want to try them with the healthier frosting recipe next time. Also, this has been a great way for me to get through some of my pantry items that I rarely used like almond flour, hazelnuts and flax meal.

    I got this mostly because my early mornings have been chaotic lately and I could use some ideas on improving them. This didn't provide that. However it did have some interesting recipes and the advice on a running exercise program can adapt fairly well to cycling. So it was worth reading. If I were a more serious runner or athlete, I imagine it would be of considerably more use.

    Good, wholesome, healthy recipes. A bit more involved with some harder to find ingredients than in previous books.

    Will I try recipes in this cookbook to mix up our breakfast routine? Yes. Will I ever make that many different breakfast muffins? Absolutely not. Aka it got repetitive but it clearly fills a need
