Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow Book Launch Dinner Party

Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow Book Launch Dinner Party

It's hard to believe it but after months of waiting Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow is here. Happy publish day!! Our second cookbook was inspired by the stories and letters from our fans and your requests--for more Superhero Muffins, more recovery smoothies, and more nourishing meals that could be made FAST.

We started working on this book 18 months ago and it turned out more magical than we ever imagined. We developed these recipes while we had a lot going on in our own lives (I was pregnant with my second baby, Shalane was training for the NYC Marathon). This is the food that kept us well nourished so we could achieve our lifelong dreams. Therefore, we're even more in love with the recipes and inspirational stories inside our second cookbook. We hope your copy of our new cookbook is in route to you!! Today you'll be able to find Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. on the shelves in bookstores across the country or you can order it online. 

Last night Shalane and I celebrated our cookbook launch together in Bend, Oregon. There's no better way to celebrate than with a dinner shared with friends and family, of course featuring a few of our favorite recipes from the new book! It was hard for me to decide on the menu for our little dinner party since we have so many delicious favorites in the new book. Check out the menu below! 

Writing a cookbook is a true labor of love that takes the dedication of an entire team. Read more about the people who made this second book turn out more beautiful than we ever imagined by flipping to the Acknowledgements section in the back of the book.

If you cook a recipe from our new cookbook, share it with us and we'll repost our faves! Simply tag us on Instagram and use our trusty hashtag #runfasteatslow.

Happy Cooking!
