This post is a shameless plug for the book Run Fast, Eat Slow by Elyse Kopecky and Shalane Flanagan.

For the first time in memory, the flu wiped me out recently. The two most restorative foods for overcoming this: Flu-Fighter Chicken and Rice Stew (with extra ginger and garlic) on page 108, and Long Run Mineral Broth, page 111.

More than just a great cookbook, Run Fast, Eat Slow informs and guides you through adequately fueling your body with solid, real food, nutrition. If you like to go long, hard and both, then this book by a couple of UNC teammates will help you.

Protein and nutrient dense

Superhero Muffins are now fueling my return to normal active life.

Balanced Movement Superhero Muffin variation:  We have been making these muffins, but substituting 1 cup of Buckwheat Flour for one of the cups of Almond Flour.  They are still gluten free, slightly less protein, more carbohydrate,  slightly more iron (Buckwheat: 21 g carbohydrate, 4 g protein, 1 g iron; Almond Flour 6 g carbohydrate, 6 g protein, 0.5 g iron; per 1/4 cup).  I also love the flavor of buckwheat and think it yields a fuller mouth feel, and a deeper, more balanced grain and nut flavor.  Plus you can get great buckwheat flour from the Old Mill of Guilford, a grist mill that has been in operation since 1767, not far from where I grew up.  Yes, I am a sucker for a good backstory.

If you are lucky enough to still have an independent local bookstore, support them, have them order it for you.

Brian and Andy helped me overcome a herniated disc that had me in pain 24/7. Within a few visits I was back to working out at full capacity without pain. Brian also helped me improve my run stride and movement of my posterior chain in the process. I'm stronger, faster, and healthier now having worked with them than I was before the injury.
