Sports Illustrated "Best Health & Wellness Book of 2017"

Longtime health coach and yoga instructor Matt Frazier just teamed up with food writer Stepfanie Romine to create the "No Meat Athlete" movement and cookbook. This inspiring cookbook offers creative, delicious vegan recipes that are wholesome, affordable and don't have an extensive list of ingredients that will take all day to put together. Matt Frazier emphasizes that the food he writes about is "not a diet". Instead he discusses an enjoyable, sustainable, and healthy way of life. The book was chosen as a "Best Health and Wellness Book of 2017" by Sports Illustrated and it's already listed as a "Best Seller" on Amazon. com.  It's getting great reviews as well:

“[A] comprehensive collection of meatless dishes for all times of the day and all types of workout regimens. . . . An easy entry into meat-free eating.”
Publishers Weekly

“Without the right foods, athletes may appear fit on the outside while actually being extremely unhealthy on the inside. Fortunately, with a plant-based diet you can have the best of both worlds, and the recipes in The No Meat Athlete Cookbook will help you do it. I highly recommend this cookbook for active people and athletes at every level who want to perform at their best, while protecting themselves from disease with whole, plant-based foods.”
—Michael Greger, MD, New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die

“Clean Protein + Easy Recipes = Hot Body. Matt Frazier rocks it all in this superstar book!”
—Kathy Freston, New York Times bestselling author of The Lean, The Book of Veganish, and Quantum Wellness

Derek Jeter's Number Retired

Five-time World Series champion Derek Jeter is “one of the best players of his generation” per ESPN Magazine. During his twenty seasons with the New York Yankees, Jeter earned five Golden Glove Awards, Five AL Silver Slugger Awards, Two Hank Aaron Awards and was consistently a leader in the American League for hits and home runs. Today his No. 2 Jersey was retired at Yankee Stadium. Many former teammates, fans and others turned out to pay tribute to Derek. Although the Yankees are not always considered the most popular team outside of their home park, Derek Jeter developed a reputation for his professional behavior. He was seemingly respected by most everyone in sports. The athlete’s last at-bat in his career was at the home of a fierce rival: Fenway Park in Boston. That day the Boston crowd saluted the shortstop with a standing ovation.

Derek Jeter’s story is an amazing one. He is a gifted athlete who worked hard and tried to do his best for himself and others. Freading has several exciting books with information about him. Login and hang on for the ride:
