The Gluten-Free Edge…Do You Want It Too?

The Gluten Free Edge for Peak Athletic Performance

Have you heard about the new book, The Gluten-Free Edge: A Nutrition and Training Guide for Peak Athletic Performance and an Active Gluten-Free Life?

I just finished reading it….AND I loved it SO much that I am giving away a copy of it along with a pedometer to motivate a  lucky winner into action.

The Gluten-Free Edge was written two people I highly respect and admire in the Gluten-Free Community.  Peter Bronksi, award-winning writer and endurance athlete, and also the co-author of Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking and founder of the blog No Gluten, No Problem; and Melissa McLean Jory, MNT, nutritionist, wilderness adventurer, yoga enthusiast, and founder of the blog Gluten-Free For Good.

This book addresses how you can gain an edge in sports and in life by going gluten-free. It talks about how science is showing more and more that gluten can have a negative impact on our health, regardless of whether or not we have Celiac Disease.

According to an excerpt from the book synopsis:

The Gluten-Free Edge is the first comprehensive resource to include:

  • What gluten is and how it negatively impacts health and athletic performance
  • The myriad benefits of adopting a gluten-free nutrition plan
  • What to eat during training, competition, and recovery
  • How to deal with group meals, eating on the road, and getting “glutened”
  • Insights from prominent athletes already living the gluten-free edge
  • 50 simple, high-octane recipes to fuel your performance

Whether you’ve been diagnosed with gluten intolerance or simply want to get ahead of the competition, this book is for your. Your own gluten-free edge is waiting.”

I love that many of our own local sports celebrities here in our town have been very vocal about their choices to go gluten-free. My own children feel like having a special diet is now more like a cool badge rather than something to be embarrassed of.  My oldest is even convinced that the reason he is “such a great baseball and football player” (his words exactly) is because he is gluten free. Of course, his reason to be so is not by choice, considering he has Celiac Disease.

This book is packed with amazing information backed by science, research, and history. It has amazing personal accounts from many of the elite athletes. And it provides a realistic approach to food as it relates to how to achieve peak athletic performance, not only for the serious athlete, but also for the weekend “warriors”.

Peak Athletic Performance and an active gluten-free life

Along with some amazing nutrient dense recipes, The Gluten-Free Edge also has a great list of whole, fresh foods, full of complex carbs, lean proteins, and healthy fats that are all completely gluten-free and that will leave you feeling full of energy.

    Kim,

    Wow, thank you for this endorsement. It means so much to me and to Pete, as well. We’re excited about the positive responses we’re getting to the book, and as a mom, to hear that things have changed enough that your boys feel being GF is what is giving them their super-powers absolutely makes my day (I say with tears in my eyes). That is what this book is all about — we want people to find the tools to thrive. Not just “get by,” but to really thrive and be a “great baseball and football player.” I love that!!

    Thank you!
    Melissa
