The fitness influencer and creator of the #1 bestselling Food & Drink app, FitMenCook, shares 100 easy, quick meal prep recipes that will save you time, money, and inches on your waistline—helping you to get healthy on your own terms.
We like to be inspired when it comes to food. No one enjoys cookie-cutter meal plans, bland recipes, or eating the same thing every day. Instead of worrying about what to eat and how it’s going to affect our bodies, we should embrace food freedom—freedom to create flavorful meals, but in a more calorie-conscious way; freedom to indulge occasionally while being mindful of portions; and freedom to achieve wellness goals without breaking the bank.
In Fit Men Cook, Kevin Curry, fitness expert and social media sensation with millions of followers and hundreds of thousands of downloads on his app, shares everything you need to live a healthy life each day—from grocery lists to common dieting pitfalls to his ten commandments of meal prep—as well as his personal story of overcoming depression and weight gain to start a successful business and fitness movement. This guide also includes 100+ easy and flavorful recipes like Southern-Inspired Banana Corn Waffles, Sweet Potato Whip, Juicy AF Moroccan Chicken, and many more to help you plan your week and eat something new and nutritious each day. With Fit Men Cook, you can create exciting, satisfying meals and be on your way to losing weight for good.
After all, bodies may be sculpted at the gym, but they are built in the kitchen.
Curry, creator of the FitMenCook app, laces his hardcover debut with hashtags, Instagram-worthy photos, and listicles on topics like the five most common pitfalls of dieting. Which is not to say that the work lacks moments of depth. There are motivational pep talks, confessional tales of coping with depression, and hard earned bits of wisdom ("You simply cannot outtrain a poor diet"). Curry's meal plans are full of sturdy and flavorful ingredients and recipes designed for those who want to cook a couple times a week in batches large enough to last several days. The entries are labeled to indicate their dietary qualities, including gluten- and dairy-free options and high-protein and low-carb selections. One of Curry's self-proclaimed signature dishes is chicken crust pizza. Instead of flour, a dough of pulverized poultry, grated parmesan, and herbs is molded and baked before being sauced and topped with mozzarella. Alternatively, whole wheat flour, ground turkey, and reduced-fat cheeses come together in a thyme cheeseburger breakfast casserole. And a healthy-ish white mac 'n' cheese employs whole wheat noodles along with goat cheese, greek yogurt, and crumbled turkey bacon. Curry's mission speaks volumes to readers in need of a workable diet to accompany their fitness plan.
