About "Runner's World Vegetarian Cookbook"

As a runner, you know that your food is your fuel—you have to eat well in order to perform well. But if you think it’s impossible to be a high-performing athlete and ditch meat, think again. Legendary ultrarunner Scott Jurek is plant-based and track star Carl Lewis is vegetarian. Being wholly or mostly meatless doesn’t have to mean sacrificing nutrition or performance—in fact, these whole-food recipes can help bring your body to peak health and fitness. Written by Heather Mayer Irvine, the Food and Nutrition editor of Runner’s World, this vegetarian cookbook not only contains healthy recipes but also in-depth information on how runners—regardless of their food-with-a-face preference—can eat more plants. In this cookbook, you’ll find delicious and nutritious recipes for every meal (and yes, even dessert!) that will help power your runs and recovery.
