Best Books of the Month (Cookbooks, Food, and Wine) – Amazon
“Cook To Thrive is an extension of Natalie’s commitment to living an active and healthy lifestyle, and is filled with lots of fresh, fun ways to help fuel your body.”– MICHAEL PHELPS, world champion and 28-time Olympic medalist
“Growing up, I knew Natalie not only as a role model, but also as a mentor in and out of the pool. I remember my first trip with the national team, when everyone told me that if you want good food, always go where Natalie goes! This cookbook has been long awaited by everyone who has been fortunate enough to know Natalie and her passion and talent for cooking, and it is the perfect book for the firsttime chef or the cooking aficionado looking to learn something new.”– MISSY FRANKLIN, Olympic swimmer and five-time gold medalist
“In Cook to Thrive, Natalie proves that healthy eating need not be bland and boring. Her recipes are balanced for optimal performance yet flavorful and inspiring. We love that she incorporates delicious recipes from her Filipino heritage.”– SHALANE FLANAGAN AND ELYSE KOPECKY, New York Times bestselling authors of Run Fast. Eat Slow. and Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.
“If Natalie can eat and cook the way she does and be one of the fastest swimmers on the planet, then I’m all ears. Full of delicious recipes, thoughtful how-tos, and even a guide to meal prep, Cook to Thrive is a simple and cohesive approach to getting your cooking under control and (gasp!) actually having fun in the kitchen.” — DUFF GOLDMAN, baker and owner of Charm City Cakes
“Natalie’s book is a refreshing glimpse into what a world-class athlete cooks and eats, as it’s not all salads, superfoods, and supplements. Her recipes (a number of which are inspired by her Filipino heritage) are full of fresh, real ingredients bursting with color and flavor, as well as the occasional indulgence, because, well, good health is as much emotional as it is physical!” — LINDA LY, author of The Backyard Fire Cookbook and The New Camp Cookbook
“Swimmer Natalie Coughlin competed in three Olympic games (2004, ’08, and ’12), winning a dozen medals (including three golds)—more than any female American Olympian. So when she credits this breakfast, from her new cookbook, Cook to Thrive, as part of her recipe for success, it’s something we think you’ll want to try, too” –Parade
