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

    Have liked everything I've tried, wish there were time estimates on the recipes and pictures for everything. Also found it a little weird that there wasn't more of an attempt to provide meal plan or prepping ideas since it was billed on being relatively fast and easy if Shalane could d...

    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...

    The recipes in this book are great - I?ve made several so far and only one didn?t turn out (the banana chews...might retry, might not). All of the others have been easy and delicious. As other have said, the content other than the recipes is somewhat interesting but not really anyt...

    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...

    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! ...

    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...

    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...

    First, people who review cookbooks without trying the recipes should be suspended from goodreads. Second, this is a fantastic cookbook. I?ve made SEVERAL of the recipes and my family has enjoyed all of them. My son even liked the marinara that he could see vegetables in. Great...

    I'm a terrible cook, but I tried five recipes from this the first weekend I had the book and they all came out great! This is unprecedented for me. Some of the recipes are not my style ? we are not a spelt/teff household, for instance ? but enough are just healthful ways to prepare...

    I just happened to pick up this book when I saw it at my library. I had zero expectations, I've been disappointed by healthy cookbooks before, but this book was quite the contrary. Every recipe I made was delicious, and none have refined sugar which was great since I just omitted that ...

    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...

    I love this cookbook. It?s full of great nutrition advice and fantastic recipes. As a runner, it?s great to use the recipes in this cookbook to fuel up. Some of my favorite recipes thus far are the chai and the superhero muffins. I am looking forwards to continue cooking and baking...

    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 ...

    Borrowed from library first to make sure I would like recipes and use it. I was pleasantly surprised that many of the meals are pretty quick to make, which is a must for me. I love the layout and being a runner looking to improve my nutrition, I appreciated the breakout and explanation...

    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...
