Vegan fitness cookbooks

At Planthlete we understand that cooking the same old recipes over and over again can be boring. That’s why we have created a list with our favorite vegan bodybuilding cookbooks full of recipes that are healthy, easy and high protein. To give you some inspiration to cook the best meals ever!

The task to create such a list isn’t an easy job. In our journey to create this list, there seemed to be thousands of cookbooks available today. Of course, we haven’t read them all, so if you have any recommendations, leave them behind in the comments, we love to hear about new books everyday!

1. No Meat Athlete Cookbook

We are a huge fan of No Meat Athlete. This blog earns new fans every day by showing how everyone can become healthier and fitter by eating whole plant foods. The founder of NMA, Matt Frazier, wrote this book together with food writer Stepfanie Romine showcasing 125 vegan recipes suited for Planthletes! Whether you’re a runner or bodybuilder, you can find your healthy high protein meals in this book.  Starting out with the benefits of running on a plant-based diet (more energy, faster recovery, weight loss), he goes on to provide tips on how to make new habits stick and get all the nutrients you need. Frazier also provides meal plans and training plans for runners of all abilities, as well as guidance on improving performance and avoiding injuries.


This book by Mitchell may catch a few people off guard. The language might be either off-putting to those of a sensitive nature or it can make you chuckle if you have a thicker skin. It contains some swearwords and has a no bullshit attitude. Nex to the language used, it has some great recipes! Not everything is healthy. It’s mostly based on the Tex-mex kitchen and has some interesting recipes like the Smoked Almond and Chickpea Salad Sandwich is outrageously good. The recipes don’t seem complicated and the authors drop helpful hints all throughout.


This book is described as ultra-vegan. The book is based on the documentary Forks over knives, which we loved. And also the cookbook does not disappoint. The cookbook is about improving your and the planet’s health. It contains a diverse selection of whole-food, plant-based recipes. The book was organized by type of dish and included a section on “Basics” that covered all the sauces, stocks, broth, etc. Which is really useful. Also, this book is particularly good for people who want recipes that are not oily, soy-based or full of store-bought things.

4. The How Not to Die Cookbook

I think everyone is familiar with the book ‘How not to die’. This book may help those who are susceptible to illnesses that can be prevented.” From the physician behind the wildly popular Nutrition Facts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can help prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death. The book has a focus on the vegan diet. And now there is a cookbook that is based on ‘How not to die’. We are huge fans of Dr. Greger’s book, so we had to read this accompanying cookbook. It begins with a brief but thorough summary of everything in Greger’s initial book. He teamed up with a culinary expert named Gene Stone and has lots of beautiful pictures. It has some great whole food, plant-based recipes. Overall the preparation is straightforward and there are many recipes that don’t require a huge list of ingredients and are easy to prepare


5. Plant-Strong: Discover the World’s Healthiest Diet

Rip Esselstyn is best known because of his first book The Engine 2 Diet. This is something else The Engine 2 Diet explains why a plant-based diet is good for you and teaches you how to implement it into your life. It gives some room for the hesitant meat eater to ease into this way of life. This, however, is his cookbook. The book includes 150 recipes. We never would have picked up this book based on the title or the goofy cover. But however, we loved it! The book is divided into chapters which tackle each and every objection thrown at people who prefer to eat a plant-based diet, with lots of legumes nuts and fruit. And prefer to eat these ingerdients rather than meat, dairy, oils, refined flour, and sugars. The book is full of information, inspiration and all on a practical basis. The recipes are nice and list not so common ingredients to use in food preparation. There are many references to scientific researches, so the recommendations are backed up with information on real-world results of studies as well as personal experiences.


6. Vegan 100

Gaz Oakley has a famous vegan YouTube channel called Avant-Garde Vegan, now he also has a complimentary cookbook called: Vegan 100. On his YouTube channel, he posts fitness-related video’s every once in awhile. He even has a few very useful meal-prep videos that inspired us a lot. In his cookbook, it’s the same. It has some cheat day meals like Raw Cacao “Cheesecake” but also healthy nutritious recipes for Planthletes. The pictures are vibrant and gorgeous. It’s all incredible-tasting food that happens to be vegan. Most recipes are easy to make, but there are definitely some that are great for dinner parties when you want to impress your guests and have a little extra time to prepare everything. In short: Delectable, beautiful and packed with dishes that are good for you. We highly recommend it!


7. The Plantpower Way

Rich Roll does it all, he describes himself as Plant-powered Wellness Advocate, Bestselling Author, Ultra-Athlete & Podcast Host Rich Roll. We call him the ultimate Planthlete. Together with his wife Juliet Piatt (who is a chef) they have created a family lifestyle guide with 120 plant-based recipes.
The Plantpower Way shares the joy and vibrant health they and their whole family have experienced living a newly plant-based lifestyle, which they didn’t live by before. Bursting with practical guidance, inspiration and beautiful photography. But beyond the plate, at its core, The Plantpower Way is a plant-centric lifestyle that finally provides families with a highly accessible, easy to follow roadmap to long-term wellness and vibrant body, mind, and spirit health. The Plantpower Way is claimed to be better than a diet: It’s a celebration of a simple, delicious, and sustainable lifestyle that can give families across the country a whole new perspective and path to living their best life.
