Ultramarathoner and author Matt Frazier (No Meat Athlete) returns with a hundred-plus vegan and vegetarian recipes in this comprehensive collection of meatless dishes for all times of the day and all types of workout regimens. Though readers don’t have to be triathletes to get the most out of the book, those with intense workout schedules are sure to appreciate Frazier’s focus on fitness with dishes aimed at fueling workouts (including DIY sports drinks to replace Gatorade) and speeding up postworkout recovery. As for the dishes themselves, they range from the rote and expected (avocado toast, veggie hoagies, Buddha bowls, etc.) to the ingenious, with recipes for potato-stuffed portobellos, garlicky rosemary soup, and Caribbean coconut collards with sweet potatoes. In almost every case, Frazier and Romine’s recipes are easily sourced and well within the capabilities of novice cooks, making for an easy entry into meat-free eating. Sage advice on picking the right dishes to work into one’s everyday meals, oil-free cooking, expanding one’s incorporation of greens, and putting leftovers to good use give readers the necessary tools to up their healthy-eating games.
