That said, most of those dozen are pre- and post- workout foods, which was exactly what I was looking for. Many of her recipes used some interesting flavor profiles and are clearly presented. The index has so far been counterintuitive and unhelpful (I remembered seeing a pesto recipe, but you won't find "pesto" under P, though you will find "perofrmance" [sic] there. Instead, you will find "pesto" under "basil" or "sauces," etc.), though I suspect that is due to lazy editing on the publisher's end, not Steph's doing.
I expected more than a couple pages on information pertaining to eating for athletic performance, but it is a cookbook, not a nutritional guide, so I guess that is my error. I absolutely love that you will find macros for each recipe, and she also provides a little blurb for some of the less common ingredients, like yucca or lotus root. Another surprise was her smoothie section; what is typically a banal and useless section in a cookbook is anything but here; Steph includes some great ideas with some unusual ingredients.
To me, this cookbook reads like something great for someone willing to experiment in the kitchen, interested in using some of the recipes as inspiration, and looking to improve nutrient timing on a paleo diet.
I'm looking at the recipe for "Tex-Mex deviled eggs", and the recipe says that *per serving* you should get ~37g of protein. That's excellent! The problem is, however, that the entire recipe that makes 3 servings only uses 6 eggs total, and there is no additional source of protein in the recipe. Given that most regular eggs are about 6-7g of protein, using 6 eggs for the entire recipe only gives you ~36g of total protein. If you break that up into 3 servers, that's really only about 12g of protein per serving. There also seems to be some issues with the shakes recipes the author uses. She recommends using 1/3 cup of protein powder or 2 eggs, but the recipe's macros will claim it has 17g of protein total? Maybe if you have high protein eggs that's possibly, but if you're using 30g of protein powder the total protein should be much higher. These are just the specific examples I could think of off the top of my head.
Also, the total calorie count per serving isn't anywhere. I guess you could do the basic math yourself to figure it out, but you'd think in a cookbook for "athletes" that'd be something the author would want to include.
All told, the book is alright, but it definitely seems to have errors in it. The reason I bought this book was to be able to cook healthy meals to fuel an active lifestyle throughout the day without having to be the one to measure, weigh, and do the math for everything. Given that this cookbook seems to have some errors, it's kind of pointless for that purpose. It's good for ideas, but it seems if I follow some of these recipes I'll need to do most of the legwork myself to figure out the actual accurate macros. Disappointing.
The recipes are nice balance of familiar and new in both ingredients, techniques and flavors with lots of room for personalization where needed. There are a few ingredients that were new for me - nutritional yeast, maca, ancho pepper, and they sent me on a bit of a hunt but weren't that hard to find here in Omaha. We love it when we start to use something new. It stretches our culinary palette and lets us have a bit more flexiblity with the new capability. For us, it is a great launchpad to try new things and use familiar items in different ways.
Bottom line: Love it, am happy to recommend it, would gift it in a minute (but NEVER my copy! - that will need to be inherited)
