Review

"This evidence-based book comes at the perfect time, as the interest in fueling performance with plant-based foods is gaining popularity. The research supporting a plant-forward diet for improving health is well accepted, but many athletes are unsure of how plant-proteins will support their fitness goals and training. The information is in an easy-to-understand format and takes a deep dive into plant-based proteins, answering one of the most common concerns athletes have - how can they get all of the essential amino acids to fuel their sport. It is a comprehensive guide for any athlete looking to follow a plant-based lifestyle and includes how antioxidant and phytonutrient-rich plants benefit training and recovery. Athletes and exercise enthusiasts can now put this information into practice with the confidence to follow a plant-based diet for overall health, training, and excelling in sports."

Heather Mangieri, RDN, CSSD, Sports Dietitian and Author of Fueling Young Athletes

"This book gives you the why and how when it comes to incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet, with easy to follow meal plans and strategies. As a sports dietitian working with collegiate and professional athletes, there is a physical benefit that many of my athletes feel when they begin to incorporate more plant-based foods, whether they are in the form of carbs, protein or fat. This book breaks down the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits by macronutrients and color groups. It leaves the reader with activities to assess their own diets and to understand where they could potentially improve. If you've heard about the benefits of eating more plant-based foods but are unsure of how to add them into your diet, this is the book for you."
