Written By: Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD

Meal plans to cover every day in a training plan (including rest and recovery days), 68 simple and tasty recipes, and meal prep tips ensure plant-based athletes have the energy they need to bring them past the finish line.

Nutrition for everyday athletes is more than just the overall consumption of the right nutrients—it’s about when and how to get what’s needed to fuel their bodies—and the growing number of plant-based athletes need answers and advice about the proper amount of nutrients. Am I getting enough protein? How much iron and B12 are in meatless foods? Here to guide is Natalie Rizzo, a New York City-based media dietitian and owner of Greenletes, a compilation of vegetarian and vegan recipes and practical sports nutrition articles, to all this and more.

Planted Performance is a cookbook not just for vegetarian or vegan athletes, but also for meat eaters looking to integrate more plant-based dishes in their diets. Packed with nutritional guidance, you’ll quickly become a stronger, better athlete before, during, and after race day.
