The enhanced version of Cook For Your Life features stunning full page layouts and video throughout. Let Ian share his food philosophies with you, while you cook.
Ian Thorpe has long been known for his incredible swimming achievements. Less well-known is that he loves to cook. But Ian has learnt through years of competition that he can’t just eat anything and achieve the elite level success that he has become known for. Healthy eating is something that he has always had to keep in mind to perform at his peak. Whether he swims competitively or takes a break he has been able to apply all that he has learned to his diet and health. A lifetime love of cooking teamed with a refusal to give up the flavours of his favourite meals led Ian to develop a plan that allowed him to eat the delicious foods he loves and to maintain a healthy, lean, strong body. In this, Ian Thorpe’s first cookbook, he shares the recipes that keep him trim and healthy, as well as his philosophy on diet gathered from experts on nutrition and diet over all of his years of elite sporting success. Ian Thorpe has devised his own succesful formula for a healthy diet, it is balanced and achievable and has kept him looking great and feeling great.
I was skeptical initially....
When I heard that Ian Thorpe had releases a cook book, I through what would someone out of the pool know about cooking?!? But now that I have read the book from cover to cover. it is a very well laid out book with very easy to follow recipes that he explains well. The concept of the book is brilliant, and sure it's been done before, but Ian really hits the nail on the head with this book. I'm very happy that I purchased it and can't wait to get cooking some of the recipes from it.
The only criticism I would have for it is, if it's supposed to be a get healthy cook book... a lot of the recipes are serves 4-8. Would have been nice to have seen it aimed at serves 2-4. With the mention that you could easily double this for a BBQ or Dinner party.
I have to agree with him... The 3 day chickedn sounds amazing, can't wait to try it for myself!!!
