The Spud Fit Cookbook

A Whole Food, Potato-Based Guide To Eating And Living

Spud Fit: A whole food, potato-based guide to eating and living is far more than just a book of meals – it is a primer for long term, successful and sustainable lifestyle change. With contributions from more than 80 of the world’s foremost leaders in the plant based movement, you’ll learn everything you need to know to take control of your relationship with food and your life. Gain boundless energy and health, look and feel younger – all while eating as much as you want!

In 2016 the story of Andrew’s quest to eat nothing but potatoes for the entire year went viral. Over the course of that year he regained his health, lost 55kgs (121lbs), cured his chronic depression and – most importantly – dealt with his lifelong debilitating addiction to food. He has since inspired countless others to take control of their health and their lives, all with help from the humble spud.

The Spud Fit Challenge was borne out of Andrew’s desire to remove addictive foods from his life once and for all; if an alcoholic should quit alcohol then maybe a food addict should quit food? He continues to avoid addictive foods by enjoying a wide variety of delicious, whole foods in all their forms, without any need to count calories, analyse portion size, measure or weigh food (or yourself!), restrict intake or overthink anything at all. The simplicity of this concept is key to the Spud Fit philosophy and forms the basis of this book.

The king of comfort foods remains at the centre of his diet. In The Spud Fit Cookbook you’ll find over 100 Whole Food Spud Based recipes with contributions from some of the most knowledgeable and influential people in the plant based world, people who are leading from the front in all walks of professional life from Olympians to nutrition scientists.
