Runner’s World Meals on the Run {What’s for Dinner?}

Runner's World Meals on the Run Cookbook. Perfect recipes for runners ready in 30 minutes or less.

Hey guys!

Hope you are having a great weekend. We are soaking in every last second. I’m hoping a walk in the woods or on the beach is on tap for today. I need some fresh air after a week of rainy, blah weather.

Back in October I was sent a copy of Runner’s World new cookbook to review, Meals on the Run (FYI – affiliate link). With the promise of 150 energy packed recipes ready in 30 minutes or less, I was hooked. I mean a cookbook that are not only fast to prepare but also help as prerun fuel or post run recovery is a runners dream. You don’t want to see me post run hangry!

This cookbook has something for everyone. Every recipe is broken down to Pre-Run, Recovery, Low-Calorie, Gluten-Free, 5-Minute Fix, 10 Minutes Tops, and Hydrating meals. Because all runners need to know what to eat before and after a run.

The recipes were contributed by elite runners like Kara Goucher, celebrity foodies Joe Cross and Mark Bittman, and many by registered dietitians and Rodale test kitchen. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me!

I’ve put quite a few of the recipe to the test.

The Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie, Sunny Side Up Pizza (eggs on pizza = yum!) and the Soba Noodles with Peanut-Sesame Sauce. Each one was absolutely delicious. And just like was promised – ready in 30 minutes or less.

This week, I’ve got more recipes from the cookbook planned. My belly can’t wait!

  1. This cookbook caught my eye! I have made quite a few meals out of the magazine–it’s great that they compiled them into a cookbook. I used to be a huge fan of Cooking Light–they had so many quick and tasty meals. That magazine has changed and I don’t find as many recipes as I used to. I’ll have to check out the cookbook!
