If you equate ‘sports performance food’ with kale smoothies, calorie-counting, and unadorned hunks of protein, this book might change your mind. Richard Ingraham’s flavor-packed recipes are attention-grabbing for what they include – lots of spices, a wide variety of vegetables, meat, and fish prepared in creative ways – than for what they leave out.
