Synopses & Reviews
A cookbook and training manual dedicated to the most important part of the day for any athlete — the morning — from the New York Times bestselling authors of Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.
Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky believe (and science confirms) that what you eat at the start of the day impacts everything: your mood, your work output, your cravings, your sleep, and even your long-term health. In Rise and Run, they turn their focus to the most important meal of the day, with over 100 recipes for nutrient-dense, indulgent breakfasts, recovery drinks, packable snacks, and best-of-all: twenty-four new Superhero Muffin recipes (both savory and sweet!).
These veggie-forward recipes can also double as lunch or dinner. Think Savory Red Lentil Oatmeal, Tempeh Sausage, Brunch Power Salad, Pesto Zucchini Superhero Muffins, Everything Bagel Muffins, and homemade breads, biscuits, cookies, and bars. Every recipe includes make-ahead tips for busy families, and they are crafted with the ideal balance of protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats to keep you sustained. But Shalane and Elyse don't just leave it there. Along with recipes, they share expert advice from trainers and pros, as well as morning rituals, intention-setting tools, predawn running tricks, and injury-prevention advice. And, to top it off, Rise and Run includes a fourteen-week marathon-training program designed by Shalane that will have you breaking personal bests.
This book will teach athletes how to spend more time chasing the sunrise — without sacrificing the most important meal of the day.
"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." Library Journal
