Earlier this year, I received the book Finish Line Fueling in the mail. I’ve expressed my love for cookbooks MANY times in this space – so you can already guess that I was excited to receive this fun package. While I love exploring through most cookbooks, I was even more excited to dig into this cookbook because it is written by Jackie Dikos – a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in Indianapolis who specializes in endurance/running nutrition!
I’ve been reading through this book over the past couple of months in preparation for my next half marathon – the Indianapolis Mini Marathon in May. She really digs deep into the why behind proper nutrition for endurance athletes. There are meal ideas, suggestions for nutrient timing, tips for pre-race and race day strategy, and a TON of delicious recipes.
Recipes are divided into Breakfast, Bread, Salads and Soups, Main Dishes, Performance, Snacks and Sides, and Sweet Treats. I have so many book marks in this cookbook of all the recipes I want to try and tips I want to make note of. If you are an endurance runner/athlete – I highly recommend this book to fuel you to the finish line 😉
