About The Book

Transform your health and improve your endurance as a plant-based athlete with recipes and advice from marathon runner and nutritionist Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD.

Planted Performance lays the sports nutrition groundwork of plant-based nutrition for everyday endurance athletes looking to fuel their activity and aid recovery. Meal plans to cover every day in a training plan (including rest and recovery days), 68 simple and tasty recipes, and meal prep tips ensure plant-based athletes have the energy they need to bring them past the finish line.

Nutrition for everyday athletes is more than just the overall consumption of the right nutrients—it’s about when and how to get what’s needed to fuel their bodies—and the growing number of plant-based athletes need answers and advice about the proper amount of nutrients. Am I getting enough protein? How much iron and B12 are in meatless foods? Here to guide is Natalie Rizzo, a New York City-based media dietitian and owner of Greenletes, a compilation of vegetarian and vegan recipes and practical sports nutrition articles, to all this and more.
