Kastor’s Kooking

Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory

After reading Deena Kastor‘s recent book, Let Your Mind Run, I was intrigued by how important cooking and food was to her. So I googled and accumulated the list of recipes below:

Fig and Onion Pizza

See the source image

And yes, in one of the articles, Deena mentioned that she is writing a cookbook.

Personally, I don’t cook often or make complicated recipes.  I try to eat healthy but don’t always.

I should runfess that I haven’t made anything from Shalane’s cookbook yet and I’ve had it for quite a while.

But I am tempted to make the two recipes that I added pics of.  Pasta and pizza – two of my favorite carbs!!!

As you know, the Tuesdays on the Run link up has been retired. There is now a new link-up organized by Zenaida and Kim (Kooky Runner). The new link up is called Tuesday Topics and start today!!

Since today is Tuesday, I’m also linking up with these ladies.

I’m linking also up with Coaches Corner–Debbie, Susie, Lora, and Rachel!

and Wild Workout Wednesday with Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle.

Happy Running! Do you cook healthy? Have you made any of her recipes? Would you buy her cookbook?

  1. I have not made any of her recipes, but I have seen them. Many runners are foodies (but obviously not all).I have made recipes from Shalane’s first cookbook — my quibble with that one is that find that many of the recipes are actually rather calorically dense — great if you have a great metabolism like Shalane, but most of us don’t and/or are not running so many miles.

    Of course I would buy Deena’s cookbook. Better yet she could send me a review copy. 🙂


    • Since you can get so many recipes online, i don’t buy cookbooks like I used to. Besides when I cook, it’s my hubby’s standards like yesterday beef stew and tuna noodle casserole and eggplant Parmesan. Done for the week. 🙂

  2. Damnit, now I’m hangry. It’s like the Meatless Monday morning posts. Meanies 😀
    I don’t cook — but I love the idea of some of these and could maybe figure out the balsamic ch icken one


    • Yeah I’m more the eat out, take in rather than cook though I occasionally do and could do it more. Glad to have an easy going hubby who feels the same as I do. It’s not a deal breaker if I never cook again LOL


  3. Years ago there was something floating around social media about if you couldn’t marry for love, what would you marry for? I would go for someone who can cook hands down. Yes money could buy a chef, but one of my best roommate relationships was where she loved to cook and did it daily and I’d wash up


  4. A few of the linked recipes mention dates or figs….I have heard they can be a great fuel for people with tummy troubles. I go in phases with my cooking…I enjoy doing it, but we seldom ever have a full house, so the motivation to go all out on a meal is slim. Even if I make a nice meal for the hubs and myself, we’ll have leftovers for days (and I get bored after the third serving LOL


  5. wow! Excited to hear that you are actually interested in cooking. I also believe that food is an important part of training and over all health. So wish you lived close enough to come cook with me. Can’t wait to hear how it goes!
