Boxing AND commonsense food? [The sound you hear is my heart pounding.]

Chris Algieri does a lot of stuff, but he’s probably best known as boxer. And now he’s an author, and it turns out that for many years he’s been a pretty good cook. The Fighter’s Kitchen was gifted to me by my coach, and I was so curious to try the Smashed Peas + Feta that I made two stops for ingredients on the way home from the gym. That afternoon I made two tasty lunches by combining ingredients I understood in a way I wouldn’t have thought of myself.

Don’t let the title intimidate you. I’m not planning meals “to sculpt a warrior body.” I just want the kind of lunch I deserve. This is a food book for fighters, but we are all fighters trying to get all we can out of life. So maybe you’re not training for the next world championship fight, but you still need better fuel to face today’s (hopefully less painful) challenges.
