  • Cooking with Corey: Recipes Packed with Humor, Flavor, and Attitude, by Corey Irwin.

  • Vicki Matter: "Great Cookbook!" "This book is a great all around cookbook for any athlete and their families. It is filled with nutrition information that other cookbooks seem to lack, including food timing and different eating programs for different goals. I have tried several recipes and they have all turned out delicious. They even have fantastic desserts. This is definitely one of my standard go to books when I am asked "What's for dinner tonight?"
  • Tschoop: "Simplicity at its finest" The Athlete's Cookbook is set to give you a background as to who the Authors are and what their experiences are. They have definitely been there done that. They incorporate action and plans that are useful long term, not just for a one shot deal. There is a Q&A section for the most common questions. The book goes over the simplicity of the "Top 10 Foods" for athletes and why. There are goals of meal plans along with meal timing schedules that break everything down into a simple chart. The meal plans give you a step by step example of what to do and how to eat (along with recipes). What can be better than that. I love the variety of the recipes and how I can get my kids involved in what I am eating. They look forward to seeing what new dish or recipe we are going to be trying. I also like the Chef's Notes that are included throughout with the recipes. I would definitely recommend this book. So glad that I have it. I look forward to seeing where the journey that that The Athlete's Cookbook and I are going to take."
  • Wayne Lingle: "A really great training book!" "I love this book from the first page. I like that it started off with a little background on the authors. I like that it mentions that it isn't just for the full time athlete but also the 9-5 work athlete. The common man can benefit from this book. The recipes aren't just the normal American type food. It has food types from all over the world. I made the Tequila Lime Fajitas, I went with the safe bet from the start and was really glad that I did. It was the best tasting Fajitas that I have ever made. It has breakfast, lunch, dinner, entrees, desserts, and appetizers. ...The book has food plans for 3 types of plans, fat loss, endurance, and strength. ...This book helps with telling you why you should eat the way of an athlete. When is the right time to eat foods and what portions you should eat. It is a very helpful book and I am very glad I own it. I would recommend this book to anyone that is serious about losing weight and/or gaining muscle and endurance."
  • Kristen Lefkus, of SCBD: #SCBDReview: The Athlete's Cookbook: "I had the pleasure of reviewing the The Athlete’s Cookbook by Corey Irwin and Brett Stewart. Corey Irwin is a healthy gourmet chef promoting balanced nutrition and body fitness. She has teamed up with Brett Stewart, an athlete and personal trainer. Together, they have created great recipes that taste great and help to make the most of your workouts. ...One thing I love about this cookbook is that every recipe has an explanation as to why it is helpful as a pre or post workout dish. Select ingredients in recipes are explained as to how it will assist you in your fitness goals. I found this really interesting because rather than being a cookbook that says it will work, you get to learn why. ...These recipes were delicious and filling after a hard workout or even a long day at work. ...I really did feel a difference in these meals from what I would usually eat for dinner. At night I would not feel too stuffed and find myself eating more after dinner. The next day I always felt re-energized and ready for the day. I definitely recommend this cookbook whether you are an athlete, a gym rat, or just looking for some new recipe ideas!" More...
  • Susan, of Fit Bottomed Eats: Eating My Words: The Athlete's Cookbook: "That’s what I have in The Athlete's Cookbook — 160 pages of delicious recipes from masterchef Corey Irwin and notes on how certain ingredients benefit athletic performance and recovery. Whether you're vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, or just plain everythingtarian, you'll find something to fit your tastes. Let me tell you, friends — I’m obsessed with this one... For starters, the ingredients are simple and flavorful. In contrast to Brendan Brazier’s Thrive cookbooks, which are great but sometimes use hard-to-find ingredients, I could purchase all of my Athlete’s Cookbook ingredients at my neighborhood grocery store. Heck, I found most of the ingredients in my CSA basket, as was the case for the Baked Egg in Avocado with Pico de Gallo (p. 44): Baked Eggs Breakfast is served — and delicious! Or the vegan Kale-Potato-Leek Soup (p.50), which, thanks to fresh herbs, had an amazingly light and fresh flavor — perfect for springtime! I also appreciate the athlete’s notes given with each recipe. ...Though I made only vegetarian and vegan recipes from this book, the flavors impressed my omnivore friends and family. I've cooked about 15 recipes from this book so far, and all of have been fantastic. The biggest hit to date? The Beet, Orange, and Fennel Salad (p. 54). ...I’m ending my review on a positive note: Buy this cookbook. I hope you love it as much as I do." More...

  • Renny B.A. (@RennyBA): "If you like food and cooking, this is a must read!"
  • De(au)Gustibus"Delicious. I loved this recipe. It is not the traditional arrabbiata which is just with tomatoes and chillies, but it is an excellent and richer version. The red wine is essential and it makes the difference, so definitely use it in the sauce! ... I think this version is one of the best I have tried!"
  • Tracey: "This blog is just fantastic! And this is by far my favourite post! Mmmmmm! Tasty! ...Great food, great ideas, beautifully presented and a real treat to read! Thank you so much for the inspiration. I'm now off to try out some of those recipes!"

  • J. Selengut: "Hi Corey! I saw this recipe Friday afternoon just as I was contemplating the evening's dinner with friends. Hey, I just happened to have a few ripened avocados sitting at home. Home run appetizer! You seem to have nailed the composition of the sauce..., very close to how I've had it at several Japanese restaurants. I freshly toasted the sesame seeds, mmmmm."
