I'm Elyse. I’ve spent 10 years inspiring athletes to eat more butter*.


My life goal is to teach women that healthy eating doesn’t have to be mind-consuming and stressful. My three New York Times Bestselling books co-authored with Shalane Flanagan have inspired a real food movement in the running community. We wrote the first fitness cookbooks to not preach weight loss, calorie counts, or measuring macros. As a busy, working mom with a big appetite, I know how challenging it can be to keep yourself and your family fueled with wholesome food.
