Sinead Delahunty has learned many life lessons on the football field. Most importantly, she has mastered how to fuel her body healthily. Now, she shares over 80 recipes that are bursting with flavour and nutritional value to keep you ready for whatever life may throw at you.
Juggling a full-time job as a physiotherapist, an inter-county football career and a food blog, Sinead knows the pitfalls of being under time pressure. She shows how a healthy diet using wholesome ingredients is achievable for everyone by easily incorporating meal planning and the art of batch cooking into your routine. You will find numerous ideas for leftovers, plus down-to-earth guidance on food storage, and shopping lists for cupboard essentials and seasonal additions. Featuring mouth-watering recipes for everything from breakfasts, lunches and dinners to decadent (yet nourishing!) treats and desserts, plus tips and tricks for snacking, this is the cookbook you've been waiting for to get your nutrition on track.
The dishes are designed to energise your body before a workout, and repair it afterwards. Clear guides show how much space on your plate should be given to carbs, protein, and fruit and veg, depending on your level of activity that day. As a footballer, these recipes give Sinead all the energy she needs to train, recover, work and perform, but you don't have to be an athlete to benefit from this book. Delalicious will give your body the nutrition it needs, whether you train to compete or exercise for health.
The delicious, doable recipes embrace the natural food around us and will inspire you to eat for better health and boundless energy.
