The Everyday Athlete
Recipes to Boost Energy, Performance, and Recovery
Whether you play tennis for fun, hit the weights after work, are a regular yogi, or are aspiring to be more active, you are an everyday athlete. In conjunction with clinical dietician and nutritionist Alicia Romano, we developed recipes to give you energy and endurance for the activities you love using science-backed levels of carbohydrates, protein, healthful fats and tons of flavor. We've also packed our recipes with make-ahead and storage information, plus we've included menus for dietary specifications like “plant-based” or “dairy-free.” You’ll learn what to eat when (and in what portions), pre-workout, post-workout, for snacks, and on every day in between.
"Pre- and post-workout meals, energizing snacks and other healthy nutritional recipes … ATK has honed in on a specific and healthy cookbook."
