130 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.

What You'll Find Inside:


Kale and Black Bean Breakfast Burrito

Burritos are a beloved, protein-packed meal due to their abundant delicious ingredients. We start with fiberful black beans, and a stellar surprise, hearty kale. Next, we quickly braise our kale until tender, then scramble the eggs before folding the kale back in. We spread the bean mixture onto whole-wheat tortillas, add the kale-egg scramble, and finish with tomato.

Hot and Sour Rice Noodle Soup with Shrimp

This Thai soup contains generous amounts of shrimp and rice noodles—along with oyster mushrooms and cherry tomatoes—in a highly aromatic broth bursting with hot, sour, salty, and sweet flavors. To bring this comforting recipe to heightened flavor levels, we rounded out the classic flavor profile with more distinct ingredients: fish sauce, lime juice, cilantro, and Thai basil.

Skillet Macaroni and Beef

The perfect post-strength training or interval workout dish. This Skillet Macaroni and Cheese boasts the protein and carbs you need to maintain muscle and boost energy levels, served up in one deliciously satisfying meal. Mixing in crushed tomatoes to the elbow macaroni and lean ground beef gives this hearty meal extra bulk without becoming too heavy, keeping this meal right on track with your nutritional goals.

Editorial Reviews


Testers loved this machine, which had a slimmer, more compact footprint and shorter stature than other models and therefore took up less room on our counters. Its cooking basket was roomy enough for 1 pound of food and had a completely nonstick coating. We also liked that the bottom of the basket could be removed for even deeper cleaning, if needed. Its digital controls and dial-operated menu made setting the time and temperature easy and intuitive. It stopped cooking as soon as the set time was up, and its drawer-like design allowed us to remove food without exposing our hands to the heating element.
