Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.: Quick-Fix Recipes for Hangry Athletes by Shalane Flanagan is February’s Athletic Bookworm Pick
OK, I know: a cookbook for the Athletic Bookworms read for February, WTF? I had the same thought when I first got Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.: Quick-Fix Recipes for Hangry Athletes by Shalane Flanagan out of the library a couple weeks ago. I skimmed through the first few pages, then started taking screenshots of recipes, really getting into it…but more than the recipes, I was loving the narration that went along with them (though the recipes were so good, it was one of those, ‘$hit, I’m taking pictures of every page’ moments).
Tip: I would recommend buying this book in hardcover. It’s not much more $$ and there’s something so nice about holding a cookbook and being able to reference it vs your iPad when in the kitchen. Also, the book is gorgeous. I bought it as soon as my digital loan expired, and it’s been in CA with me the last few weeks.
I also LOVE the use of Hangry in the title, because I feel as though it is speaking directly to my soul.
So, my challenge for this month: I’d love to see us all actually getting in the kitchen and cooking! If you do get this book and make a meal, post it on Instagram and hashtag #AthleticBookworms (and tag me, @mollyjhurford) and at the end of the month, I’ll send you my nutrition book plus a few of my favorite not-made-from-scratch athlete snacks!
On that note…If you’re looking for a guide to basic athlete nutrition to go along with this cookbook, check out Fuel Your Ride!
