What People Are Saying

Sports Dietitian

“Grocery Shopping on a Budget: Save Money, Save Time is a must-read for every athlete from high school to the professional level! Most of my athletes know nutrition is important to perform at their best however HOW to practice a performance enhancing diet can be confusing, time consuming and expensive if an athlete hasn't been taught the SKILLS to execute a solid nutrition plan. There are hundreds of Sports Nutrition Books on the market yet I have never seen one that provides the athlete the simple step by step instructions Grocery Shopping on a Budget offers. Grocery Shopping on a Budget: Save Money, Save Time will be a resource I require all my athletes to have as part of their game plan.”

I believe that Grocery Shopping on a Budget for Athletes: Save Money, Save Time is a must-read for every athlete from high school to the professional level!!!! This will give the athlete and the coach the necessary tool to maximize potential in their athletes.”
