I finally bought a copy of Run Fast, Eat Slow after seeing so many rave reviews online and I am so glad that I did. I’m a pretty good cook and so is my husband and as a result we eat in most of the time, but I’m always game for new healthy recipes.
I’ve made a few recipes from the book now and two things stand out each time:
- The food actually looks like the photographs in the cookbook. No fancy plating needed, it actually looks like the pictures. This isn’t a deal breaker, but I was surprised and impressed.
2. The food actually tastes good. Like, really good. This is mostly surprising because I often things that taste good are not actually good for you. See Figure 1.1 below
I even made adjustments like swapping out coconut oil for regular oil and all purpose flour for whole wheat flour or almond meal and the recipes came out delicious. It may be the first cookbook that I haven’t had a single bland recipe from. P even likes the recipes and has been happily devouring them as fast as I can make them, they’re that good. I’m looking forward to cooking my way through the book and adding more delicious (and healthy) food to our lives.
