Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Fit Food:
Mouth-watering recipes to fuel you for life
Hodder and Stoughton
The definitive cookbook for eating well to achieve optimum health and fitness, by one of the world’s finest chefs and fitness fanatic, Gordon Ramsay.
The dream combination – a Michelin-starred super chef who is also a committed athlete. Gordon knows how important it is to eat well, whether you’re training for a triathlon or just leading a busy active life. And just because it’s healthy food you don’t have to compromise on taste and flavour.
The book is divided into three sections, each one offering breakfasts, lunches, suppers, sides and snacks with different health-boosting benefits. The Healthy section consists of nourishing recipes for general wellbeing; the Lean recipes encourage healthy weight loss; and the Fit section features pre- and post-workout dishes to build strength and energise.
This is the ultimate collection of recipes that you’ll enjoy cooking and eating, and will leave you in great shape whatever your fitness goals.
In the words of Gordon Ramsay (p13) …this is not a diet book telling you what (and what not) to eat, nor is it full of faddy ideas about eating cabbage soup or living off grapefruits or eating like a caveman. It works on the very simple premise that what you put into your body makes a difference to how it functions. It also acknowledges that the body has different requirements depending on what you are expecting it to do.” Greta advice from an award winning chef turned ultramarathon runner, Gordon Ramsay.
Tasty recipes, I particularly like the section on “Nourishing breakfasts” which includes chia puddings, apple spiced porridge, toasted oat soda bread, frittata…and the “Boosting breakfasts” which include breakfasts shakes, frozen berry breakfast bowls, huevos rancheros ( a favourite of mine). These are easy to make, quick, fresh and delicious.
I am sure there is something that will appeal to all tastes and needs in this book.
