The definitive guide to eating well to achieve optimum health and fitness, by one of the world's finest chefs and fitness fanatic, Gordon Ramsay.
Gordon Ramsay knows how important it is to eat well, whether you're training for a marathon or just trying to live healthier. And just because it's healthy food, doesn't mean you have to compromise on taste and flavor. As a Michelin-star super-chef who is also a committed athlete, Gordon Ramsay shares his go-to recipes for when he wants to eat well at home.
Healthy, Lean & Fit provides readers with 108 delicious recipes divided into three sections--each one offering breakfasts, lunches, dinners, sides, and snacks--highlighting different health-boosting benefits. The Healthy section consists of nourishing recipes for general well-being; the Lean section encourage healthy weight loss; and the Fit section features recipes to fuel your next workout and post-workout dishes to build continued strength and energy. Whatever your personal goals, these dishes will inspire you to get cooking and improve your own health.
The latest book by Michelin-starred chef and TV personality Ramsay (Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking) was inspired by his own fitness and healthy eating epiphany, and includes a wide variety of intriguing recipes for nutritious meals and snacks. While his intentions are good, some of the advice feels dubious or dated. For those who can't resist chocolate mousse, for example, "Go for an extra long run the next day as penance," he suggests. His section titles may be morally driven ( "Guilt-Free Snacks" and "Well-Deserved Treats"), but they include appealing recipes: maple soy kale chips, Cheesecake in a Jam Jar, and carrot cake macaroons. Lean breakfast offerings include quinoa-stuffed mushrooms with baked eggs, and for dinner there's a single-pan chicken dish with lima beans, leeks, and spinach. Other dishes include salmon ceviche with grapefruit, avocado, and mint; a venison carpaccio with celeriac slaw; and duck breast with braised fennel and orange gremolata. Fitness-minded recipes are filled with protein and carbs for energy and include peanut butter and jam pancakes, Indian fish curry, and a sushi salad bowl. Ramsay's selection of creative recipes makes good on his promise to make nutritious, healthy eating delicious.
