RED Episode #107: A Chat with Jeff Galloway, A Recipe from The Healthspan Solution, & Big Storm Coffee El Rayo
In this run segment, we talk to America’s Coach Jeff Galloway about tips for the current situation many of us find ourselves in as runners. He talks about how to stay positive and resources to keep us going and help in this stressful time. We are so grateful that he took the time to speak with us. You can find his timer and books as well as other resources he discussed at www.jeffgalloway.com.

Jeff asked us if we wouldn't mind sharing this. Here is a link to the website that Dr. Ruth Parker, his medical advisor from Emory University, sent to Jeff if anyone has concerns that they may need to be tested for the Corona Virus:
Dr. Parker’s explanation of the website:
“This COVID-19 self-screening tool has been released for free, public use. My health educator colleague, Kara Jacobson, and I did the ‘health literacy’ review of its content, building on work we did with this team years ago during the H1N1 epidemic. Its content is based on the best-available evidence, and the team that worked to develop it is excellent (the tech for its support was donated by a great tech start-up).
Its purpose is to help people check symptoms (on a smartphone) to see if they need to go to the ER….hoping to keep folks out who do not need to be there.”
Jeff also talked about looking forward to virtual races now and fall races as a way to stay motivated. He mentioned three fun race weekends in particular that he has been to in the past or is planning on going to again this fall.

We have been cooking from The Healthspan Solution by Ray Cronise and Julieanna Hever. This week we feature one of our favorites from the book, Lemon Tahini Broccoli Slaw. It is substantial and filling with chickpeas and has a satisfying smoky flavor with sun-dried tomatoes. There are so many textures in this salad and the lemon adds a tang that is very pleasing to the palate. We talk about the book and how it has supported our weight loss and fitness endeavors. This is only the first of several recipes we will share from the book in the coming weeks.
We have been asked recently about our daily coffee posts. We say we love coffee, but what are some of our favorite kinds? Today, we talk about the El Rayo Espresso Blend from Big Storm Coffee. Head Roaster, Chris Ramsey, was on our show last year to give us some fun demonstrations. Now we talk about this specific blend and its cherry and chocolate notes. Plus, the perfect way to take a French press on the go with you with the Espro Ultralight Coffee Press. Check it out!
