The No Meat Athlete Cookbook: Whole Food, Plant-Based Recipes to Fuel Your Workouts—and the Rest of Your Life

The Experiment

 

I live a pescatarian lifestyle ninety five percent of the time – not religiously but as something that has naturally evolved and has proven to be beneficial on many fronts.

While living meat free in 2019 with the abundance of options easily available has become much, much easier than say twenty years ago, variety and thoughtful new recipes are always welcome in my household.

Penned by Matt Frazier, a health coach and yoga teacher, who teamed up with seasoned food writer Stefanie Romine, one hundred and twenty-five vegan recipes are laid up with a focus on variety, nourishment and affordability as well as covering the bases as far as breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks and sweets are concerned.

Needless to say that one does neither have to be an athlete, a chef nor a hardcore vegan to enjoy the recipes as most are easy to replicate and the book is free of ideology, i.e. informed by an approach devoid of guilt tripping carnivores and only appealing to elitists.

I specifically like the wide range of sauces and dressings that are they key to spicing up any plant-based diet. It does not hard that the book also offers not only a sound foundation for athletes that are looking for nutritional fuel to optimize their performance but also a good starting point for ones ready to kickstart and branch out with their eating habits and looking for a fun and practical  guide into some new areas of plant-based cooking with accessible ingredients, easy cooking techniques, and flexibility for certain dietary restrictions, such as no-oil and gluten-free options.
