The book will include two recipe indexes with visual keys for classification at the start of each recipe, with V (for vegetarian), VE (for vegan), GF (for gluten free), and more. The first section of the book focuses on nutritional information and staple ingredients every runner should know, and the second part of the cookbook illustrates how to turn these facts into delicious, quick, and nutrient-boosting meals through delectable recipes.
Every recipe will have an easy-to-follow icon system to identify key recipe attributes (i.e., recoveryfriendly; low-calorie; quick and easy), along with a nutrition guide that will offer readers tips on how to make the healthiest choices regarding that particular category of food. Divided by categories (Salads/ Soups/Stews, Sandwiches/Wraps/Burgers, Pizza/Pasta, etc.), these recipes are presented by types of dishes runner can look to for satisfying performance needs in appetizing ways.

I collect cookbooks and usually find one or two recipes from each that I use. However, this cookbook has so many wonderful recipes that I've made several already. I really like that they tell you what type of recipe it is - recovery, pre-run, low-calorie, etc. There are many fun snacks, too, that help keep eating right fun!
This book is really great-the recipes are packed with nutrition but aren't necessarily low fat, low calorie type things. Which is great, getting my family to eat "healthy" is a challenge, but the recipes in this give me the nutrition I need as an avid runner/cyclist but taste good enough that my family loves them too! The only thing I can say against it, you have to read the paragraph-it may say you need to serve it with rice but it'll never mention it in the recipe itself.
I am still "digesting" this cookbook, but I am impressed with the variety of good recipes I find here. They are giving me ideas for all manner of culinary things. Whether you are a runner or not, this is a good cookbook, not just for the library, but for the kitchen counter!
I subscribe to the magazine and always enjoy the recipes so I bought the book. I am glad that I did. I have tried many of the recipes, especially the smoothies, and they are all great.
Got this as my husband asked for it. I keep all of the recipes from the magazine. This so well put together and lets you know what each recipe is. Highly recommend to anyone that is a runner and loves to eat.
