And the winner is….

Ben Colligan!  Just shoot me an e-mail and I’ll set you up with Tim’s new book!

Earlier this week we hosted a guest post from Tim Woodbury of  He shared with us a delicious recipe for homemade pretzels made with chia seeds.

Chia seeds really hit the mainstream after Chis McDougall’s Born to Run was published a few years ago.  In the book he talks about how the ancient Tarahumara tribes of Mexico use the seeds while running ultra long distances in extreme conditions.  Because chia is packed with Omega 3s to help combat inflammation and retains water to help fight dehydration, they have now become an incredibly popular fuel for runners.

Inspired by the seeds himself, Tim has not only created the pretzel recipe, but a whole cookbook of chia driven recipes.  The eBook Running Recipes:  Chia-Powered Sole Food was released earlier this week, and Tim was generous enough to talk to me about the book and the benefits of chia.

  1. I would love to try out some of the recipes in this book because, as much as I love chia seeds, I haven’t had much success in evolving my recipe creativity beyond plopping a spoonful into a cup of oatmeal! I want to learn more ways to incorporate chia into my daily food.

  2. I would love this cooking ebook since I am just getting into chia seeds and chia seed recipes. My half ironman training is heating up and chia seeds are a great way to keep me fueled (especially while doing the speed limit cruising down Rock Creek and Beach Drive) :O].

    (also already have liked and shared this post)

    1. Hey Chris, Sorry you didn’t win, but good luck with the half Ironman! Which one are you doing? Keep us posted on how it goes!

  3. It would be fun to try these recipes although I’m not a runner. I would also like to see the winner be invited to guest blog about the first meal tried from the book! I would certainly be up to the task! PICK ME!!!

  4. Would <3 to learn some new recipes for healthy running nutrition. Also did #2 and #3 🙂 Glad I found yer blog!
