Every athlete, especially runners, knows that deciding what to eat is one of the most important—and most complex—choices that he or she has to make in order to guarantee optimum performance. How much should you eat, when should you eat, and what foods should you eat are just some of the larger questions that an active athlete frequently ponders. How do you know what’s the right choice? That’s where sports dietitian and competitive runner Jackie Dikos’s Finish Line Fueling: An Essential Guide to Runner’s Nutrition comes in. Part cookbook, part nutritional guide, Finish Line Fueling helps you get the most out of what you eat. Recipes are divided into helpful sections that include not just the traditional meals of breakfast, lunch, and dinner but also pre-activity snacks, post-workout recovery nibbles, racing fuel, and carbo-loading meals for intense activity. Mouthwatering morsels such as Sweet Potato Avocado Deviled Eggs, Buckwheat-Oat Granola, High Heat Roast Beef, Vegan Pinto Bean Burgers, Wild Rice and Mushroom Pilaf, and Cilantro-Lime Burrito Bowl are just a few of the dozens of yummy and nutrient-packed recipes included here. Additionally, every recipe includes a helpful breakdown of the number of calories, fat grams, grams of fiber, grams of protein, and vitamin-types that it provides, as well as strategies to modify the recipe based on your age, gender, and performance goals. With additional sections on getting the most nutrients from your diet, foods to avoid, and the best food pairings, Finish Line Fueling is essential reading for every runner.
