I fawned over Shalane Flanagan’s first book, Run Fast. Eat Slow. Her second book Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow, is equally as good. Although I think my favorite part is seeing references, quotes and pictures of her 2017 win at the New York City Marathon. This cookbook is full of recipes to help you feel comfortable in the kitchen making nourishing food designed to fuel your body.
Don’t think that you have to be an elite athlete to appreciate the recipes in this book. They really are for everyone and any household, with ingredients easily found at your local grocery store.
Even if you’re not hard at work preparing for a spring marathon, you’ll appreciate that this sauce is heavy on veggies, rather than a traditional Bolognese which skimps on vegetables. We are all better off getting more vegetables in our diets.
Adapted slightly from: Flanagan, Shalane & Elyse Kopecky; Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.
