Flanagan and Kopecky follow-up their bestseller Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow with a recipe collection focused on breakfast. The authors, both experienced runners (Flanagan is an Olympic medalist), believe that what you eat in the morning can affect your mood, workout, cravings, and general health and well-being. This is a helpful guide to making delicious food to get the day going; the recipes aren’t just for runners but for anyone looking for hearty breakfast ideas. Of course, the recipes aren’t only for breakfast—they can be served throughout the day. Many make great pick-me-up snacks, such as Apple Cheddar Superhero Muffins, Second-Breakfast Fried Rice, and Summer Veggie Frittata. In addition to the recipes, which include vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, there are tips and advice from trainers and pros, including how to prevent injury during runs.
VERDICT A beautifully photographed and well-produced resource with useful advice for runners and for those looking to make satisfying recipes for breakfast or any time of the day. The authors are encouraging throughout, and their latest is suited for home cooks of all levels.
