3 Questions for Chef Bobby Flay

Bobby Flay, Chef and Restaurateur has joined TeamAICR for the 2017 London Marathon. As he prepares for the race on April 23, we took the time to get to know him, beyond his impressive cooking skills. With a busier schedule than most, Bobby prioritizes and advocates for living a healthy lifestyle.

Although TV shows and a chain of successful restaurants may set him apart from the average runner, when it comes to food, fitness and staying motivated, Bobby fits right in with TeamAICR.

AICR:  I know you love running. What do you get from running and working out aside from just staying fit?

Bobby Flay:  Working out gives me focus, ultimately allowing me to be more productive in my thoughts. Many of my menu ideas have come from thoughts I’ve had during a daily run.“

AICR:  What’s your favorite go-to healthy meal?

Flay:  In the colder months, I like to make Irish Oatmeal with bananas and cinnamon and honey. In the warmer months, I am strictly a Greek yogurt and fresh berries smoothie guy.

AICR:  You use the phrase “small steps, big changes” – what’s the most important step you would say can help someone be healthier?

Flay:  Small steps are often the easiest way to get started, so I would suggest two easy rules for beginners:

1) 30 minutes of cardio 5 times a week

2) Try eating your last meal of the day a couple of hours earlier than usual. Once someone has successfully accomplished these, they can always add more as they go.
