As part of our move well, feel well, live well philosophy at Taylor Pilates and Fitness, how you fuel your body is a critical element in your overall health. But, it’s not always easy to find simple-to-prepare, healthful dishes that everyone will love. To help remove the strain of figuring out what to eat and inspire you with new ideas, we have three cookbook recommendations we encourage you to try.
If you want to “elevate your kitchen game” check out the New York Times bestseller, Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook. Doesn’t the thought of roasted beer and lime cauliflower tacos or pumpkin chili leave your taste buds tantalized? Not only are these recipes good to eat and good for you, but this cookbook also gives you techniques to shop on a budget. Whether you need inspiration for sides, snacks or your favorite meals, you can find lots to choose from in this book’s 100-recipe collection.
Since 2009, many people have changed their lives with the Whole30® program, a 30-day challenge to focus on eating whole, real, unprocessed foods and eliminating sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes and junk foods. Whether you want to jump into the 30-day program or just want new recipe ideas, the 150 Whole30 compliant (and delicious) recipes in The Whole30 Cookbook will help you fuel your body with nourishing food. Check out the variations of the recipes to turn one dish into two or three meals.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not a runner or a vegetarian, you won’t be disappointed with the recipes in The Runner’s World Vegetarian Cookbook. Every one of the cookbook’s 150 tasty recipes is chockful of performance-boosting nutrients. These whole-food recipes will support your body to peak health whether your goal is to run a 5K or move well at your Pilates or functional fitness class. There are very few people who wouldn’t benefit from a more plant-based diet.
When you’re ready for a break from the kitchen, we invite you to find comfort, strength, and ease in your body. Call or text us at 303-472-6743 to set up a Pilates or functional fitness session.
