One of the most important and some would argue the most ignored aspect of an athletes training is their nutrition and dinner is a key element to it all. Dinner is a meal that usually has two purposes: refuel from an evening session and/or fueling your morning session. Unfortunately though, dinner is usually neglected because the thought of cooking and cleaning at 8pm is just too much. Trust me, I get it.
I came up with this cookbook and these recipes so that no one has an excuse to not have a healthy dinner on the table within 15 minutes. I share articles and ideas on how to organize your kitchen to help move things along, ingredients to keep on hand that make cooking much faster and how to lay things out so that you move smoothly – faster.
These recipes really do only take 15 minutes and they are separated into chapters for 2 servings and 4 servings. I also try to give vegetarian options for some of the meat dishes in the book.
Bonus: All the recipes have the fat, calorie, fiber, sugar and protein breakdown.
