    Great tips and interesting recipes. Unfortunately I?m allergic to several key ingredients (soy, nuts, avocados) so I can only make a few recipes. ...

    Great layout. Easy to read, user friendly, encouragement for new tastes, delicious and healthy recipes with the active person in mind. Okay, I haven?t run for days, but there is still hope! This recipe book has inspired me to make the effort to get back at it. ...

    This book caught my eye because I am forever on the hunt for healthier recipes and I loved the idea of this book. I read through the foreword which explains how these 2 women got to know each other as college athletes and what prompted the writing of this book. Most of the recipes ...

    I've held off on getting this cookbook for a while because as a vegan, I did not think there would be a lot (if any recipes) that were relevant for me. However, after some more in depth review reading and then a trip to the book store to flip through some (okay-all) of the pages, I was...

    Lots of good recipes. I will try a few. I'm glad I got it from the library and didn't buy it. It was kind of pricey for a cookbook. ...

    Loving the recipes in this beautiful cookbook! Tons of photos and personal stories/tips from the authors. Appreciate that there is a section about what these foods do for your body as well as a section on food for healing what ails you (will definitely be checking the recipes for stres...

    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...

    Elise checked this book out of the library after a runner friend of ours made and shared with us two recipes from it--a salad, and the sweet potato cookies--both of which were great! We haven't ourselves made any recipes from it yet (besides a very good salad dressing), but the philoso...

    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 e...

    This is the cookbook I've been looking for I could not have found a more perfect cookbook that matches my own views on healthy eating. There is no shortage of healthy fats (including butter!), there are vegetarian recipes, there are meat recipes that are paired with a large doses of...

    I made a deal with myself toward the end of the year to eat healthier. I started seeking out cookbooks that are healthy and anti-inflammation. This book has a lot of really good information on nutrition. I have made many recipes from this book and all of them have been really good and ...

    This book inspires me to incorporate more healthy fats into my diet - for my skin and hair and for the nourishment that females need to remain well balanced nutritionally. I loved seeing the pictures of Elyse and Shalane and their friendship. It?s more than just a cookbook - this is ...

    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! ...

    4.5 stars. I liked a lot of things about this book. For one, these recipes are for anyone who subscribes to more of a ?whole foods? type of lifestyle, the recipes are great examples of how healthy food doesn?t have to be disgusting or flavorless, and the authors do a good job tea...

    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 non...

    To Read: Yes, if you are an athlete or want some inspiration, but it?s not a particularly interesting read for non-runners. It is interesting to read about the real-life of an Olympic athlete, and one of the authors, Shalene Flanagan, is an Olympic medalist. But there is not a lot of...

    Fresh Recipes for Endurance and Healing Let me start by saying I hate cooking. Hate wouldn?t even be a strong enough word to be honest. However, wanting to run farther and faster, I?ve begrudgingly come to accept that I will have to do this in order to accomplish my goals. I ...

    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 li...

    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...

    A book about nutrition from people who try real hard to show you they are well qualified to be "beloved family members". The book is chock full of useful and relevant information beyond the fact that the two have achieved that special level of getting married. Relevant information like...

    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 ...

    This book has some recipes that I?m really excited to try. I love that they give recipe ideas to combat certain ailments (hello achey muscles!). While Elyse and Shalane are huge supporters of buying organic, minimally processed foods (and I think that?s great and love the idea of i...
