1.0 out of 5 stars Crap!, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Feed Zone Cookbook: Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes (Hardcover)
As i train 7 days a week, for triathlons, i thought this book would be perfect for me. I already eat to support my training but wanted some recipe ideas as im bored of eating the same stuff. The book has a repeatative problem. Pancakes with this, pancakes with that. The same recipes with slight variations and to be honest, who dosent know how to cook pancakes?! It also has a major sway towards sausage and bacon. A large portion of the recipies contain sausage or bacon, now as someone who pays an intrest in nutrition, i know that the body cant process pork very well, its also extremely fattening, why its in nearly every recipe its baffling. The use of fruit and vegetables in this book is limited. I cant see how the recipes are either nutrionally balanced or suitable for athletes!!! I wouldnt recommend this book to athletes or anybody else.

Maybe you should write your own book? You seem to know everything?

Thank you for this helpful review.
Although just having a curious look at what such a book could possibly offer, since I love cooking ... I'll now skip even borrowing this book, since as you state correctly, vegetables and fruit as well as nuts & seeds offer an abundance of enzymes, minerals and vitamins; —not to mention organ meats such as beef liver or heart (delicious stew ; ), fatty fish like sardines, tuna, nat. smoked mackerel and wild salmon and of course seafood.

It is remarkable how the importance of a diverse whole food nutrition for recovery is either undervalued, neglected or even foolishly replaced with artificial shakes and bars ...
