A cookbook for the gourmet endurance athlete.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

When it comes to diet and nutrition, for most endurance athletes it is not so much about taste but rather about the nutrition power of their food that provides them with the nutrients to train and succeed at their sport.

But The Athlete's Palate Cookbook attempts to appeal to the gourmet side of these committed sports enthusiasts by bridging the gap between nutrient-rich food and delicious flavors.

Featuring over 125 recipes from A-list chefs like Bobby Flay, Cat Cora and Charlie Trotter, training hard no longer has to mean fueling workouts with flavorless foods.

Written by Yishane Lee, a columnist for Runner’s World, The Athlete's Palate Cookbook is filled with healthy and delicious recipes for all phases of training along with labels for quick-and-easy meals. It is perfect for any runner, cyclist, swimmer, or triathlete who wants to train hard while eating well.
