As part of the tour for their new cookbook, Run Fast. Eat Slow., Olympian Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky paid visits to a few of our Fleet Feet Sports locations last week. In honor of their visit, I tried out a few of the Olympian-tested recipes. The results were delicious, energizing, and incredibly easy! This book has already become a staple in my house.
Because you should always start with dessert, we chose to feature Shalane and Elyse's recipe for Cocoa-Coconut Macaroons first. These sweet little morsels will leave you feeling indulged but not weighed down. They're just rich enough to "squelch even the most problematic sweet tooth," as the authors put it. Eat them as a quick snack or bring them to any holiday gathering to easily impress a crowd.
