The Fit Foodie, Paperback


Derval O'Rourke believes that the secret to being your healthiest happiest self is to eat well and keep moving.

Derval discovered the importance of nutrition as an elite athlete.

After a poor performance in the 2004 Olympics she learned about food, fell in love with cooking - and then won a world title in her sport, hurdling.

She believes eating well made all the difference to her form. Now that Derval is retired from athletics and is a busy young mum, her focus is on fitting exercise and healthy, pleasurable eating into a hectic schedule.

The Fit Foodie is full of simple, delicious and totally doable recipes such as Laid-Back Lamb Tagine, Mediterranean Salmon and Spaghetti, Butternut and Bean Stew, Almond, Hazelnut and Pine Nut Bread and a stunning Chocolate Fondant Cake.

Derval also shares smart and inspiring advice on how to get organised so that good food and exercise are a seamless part of your life.
