  1. Very cool! I still need to dig into some of the recipes, just haven’t had a chance yet. I look forward to reading this.

  2. Amy

    Great idea! As a veg runner myself, I will be looking forward to seeing how the recipes turn out! Here’s an idea for a name for your project: “Taste Testing the Tarahumara”. Good luck!

  3. In case you haven’t come up with a name yet, here are some suggestions –

    Putting Pinole through the Paces
    The Tarahumara Test-Drive

    Someone else needs to come up with something better since I already have the book!

  4. Taming the Tarahumara
    Running through the Tarahumara

  5. Michelle

    How about Tasting Tarahumara? or The Trials of Tarahumara? or you could make and test the meal only on Tues/Thursday and call it Tuesday’s Tarahumara? Totally Tarahumara?
    Runtastic Tarahumara?

      Love these suggestions! Keep em coming and I will announce the winner with my first review next week!

  6. Sean K from Tampa

    Good luck!

    How about:

    Tarahumara Tongue Teasers

  7. Rd

    The Chia Chronicles

  8. Cool project, Courtney!

    Hmm, here are my name suggestions…

    Fuel For Thought

    No Meat Feat

    Courtney Cooks

    Carver and the Tarahumara

    This is fun!

  9. Tessa

    I like “Courtney Cooks (something)” I was thinking the same thing!

  10. How about The Taramuhara Project? Simple yet effective ;)

    Good luck!

  11. I like
    Testing Tarahumara
    Blazing in the kitchen with Frazier
    Courting the verdict on Frazier

  12. David Dutrow

    How about “Chia Fed,” a play on the pet rock of the plant world? :)

    Sounds like a great project. I can’t wait to see how it goes!

  13. Courtney,

    I know nothing about food, but am intrigued by the Taramuhara super foods you mention. What on earth are they and how do they work? I’m interested to hear more about the recipes and your experiences with their effects. I feel unqualified to offer you a name, though I loved the Julie and Julia project idea and movie…You have so many ideas in your theme – super foods, immunity, exercise, recipes, cooking, Matt Frazier and his book, you and your cooking techniques…which of these are your main interest/focus?


  14. Faith

    How about “Chasing Chia”

  15. Pinole, Chia and Iskiate…Oh My!! :)

  16. What about “Courting the Tarahumara”

  17. Steven

    Hello Courtney,

    Thanks for taking on this fun project. My suggestion is “Tarahumara for the Terrafirma Runner”

  18. jv

    Great day, love the idea. The name is so obvious I can’t wait to get my copy of the book; Courtney & Chinole, your welcome. Thanks for the inspiration.

  19. Krista

    Can’t wait to see this! How about, “Be more with Tarahumara!”

  20. “Cooking for Distance, Running for Fun”
    “Frazier’s Fuel: Tarahumara in the Modern Kitchen”

    Picked up my first bag of chia seeds a while back, along with some cacao nibs. Can I say that I’m already so addicted to the latter?

  21. Tom Swingen

    Here ya go Eat to Play & Play to Eat

  22. sarah

    Running with the Raramuri
    Be more with No Meat: cooking my way through Matt and Christine Frazier’s new cookbook

  23. Hi Courtney,

    This aounds awesome! It’s so nice that you are challenging yourself in this way and we get to come along for the ride (well, run, I suppose) :-)

    I’m looking forward to your follow-ups on this fantastic endeavour.


    • Courtney Carver

      Thanks Karen. I am posting my first recipe review and announcing the name of the project on Wednesday. Stay Tuned!

  24. Becky

    Looking forward to your recipe reviews! Just a few ideas that come to mind….

    “The Superfood Project”

    “Supercharged Chia”

    “Pining for Pinole”

    “The Chia Challenge”

    • Courtney Carver

      Thanks Becky. Great ideas! First set of reviews will be up on Wednesday. (along with the name announcement.)

  25. i totally missed he has a cookbook! i have to order that!

    i kinda think it’s about improving your life, so i’d call it something like “super foods, incredible life.”

    great idea to do this!!!

  26. How about “Ch-ch-ch-choosing Chia”? (Couldn’ resist!) Sounds like a great plan. I had the pleasure of meeting Julia and chatting with her several times during her last few years. A lovely person, definitely a carnivore! So, as you noted, not a great many recipes for vegetarians and almost none for vegans (all that butter, you know!).

  27. what an awesome idea!!! i will definitely be following!!!

    • Courtney Carver

      Yippee! Thanks Elizabeth. It should be fun. (let me know if it’s not, and I will change things up!)

  28. gabriela

    Hey Courtney,
    I just ran into your project and I´m looking forward to reading it. How´s it going?

    • Courtney Carver

      Gabriela, Thanks for your comment! It’s going great. I have a few reviews up and have really appreciated new ways to incorporate chia seeds into my diet!

    Veggin with Frazier (or Matt)
