Liz Yelling’s foreword to the book says it all
Foreword by liz yelling
Double Olympian; Commonwealth bronze medallist in the Marathon
“As a double Olympian, being the best you can be is not just about training hard. It is also about all the little things that make a big difference. For me, healthy eating and making the right food choices has always been instrumental to better running performance. It is just as important as my training and inextricably linked to it. Great food helps me train, race and recover stronger and faster.
Go Faster Food provides active people, serious or recreational, with hands-on, practical advice about how to eat for good athletic performance. It describes why a healthy and nutritious diet is vital for optimal participation and better training, racing and competition. Its easy-to-understand approach makes it a must-read for those looking to improve their general diet, but also those lookingto shave extra minutes off their best time. What makes this book great is that it’s not just another book on why exercisers, athletes and people passionate about their
health should make the right food choices; it also contains hundreds of great food recipes to put that theory into good real-life practice. It’s an essential piece for your running kitbag; a manual to eating well.
I love healthy eating and get great enjoyment from preparing a meal from fresh wholesome ingredients. Like most people I have a limited repertoire of recipes and I am very excited about adding to my diet with some new recipe ideas from Go Faster Food. The Turkish TurIu Turlu with couscous and tahini sauce and the American blueberry pancakes are two recipes I can’t wait to try. I am also pleased to see two of my favorite treats included, just with better names: the ‘go faster carrot cake’ and the ‘recovery rice pudding’.
Enjoy cooking up some better sporting performances with this great book!”
