The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) has helped to create many sporting champions, including the top-selling cookbook Survival for the Fittest - The Australian Institute of Sport official cookbook for busy athletes. But you don't have to be an athlete to enjoy the nutritious, easy-to-make and energising recipes. The cookbook is great for busy families who want healthy, tasty food without spending hours in the kitchen.

As part of its role as an AIS sponsor, Nestlé developed the cookbook in conjunction with the AIS Department of Sports Nutrition. Every recipe has cooking times and nutritional information as well as beautiful and inspirational photos of the food. Just like the recipes you see on this site.
The cookbook has helped give AIS athletes the winning edge in the international sporting arena. It is also a wonderful way for you to enjoy fast, delicious food. Due to popular demand, a second companion cookbook to Survival for the Fittest has also been produced.

The second official cookbook from the AIS Department of Sports Nutrition, developed in partnership with Nestlé.
Following the overwhelming success of the first cookbook Survival for the Fittest the AIS athletes and active Australians wanted more! They wanted more recipes to try and some of the athletes wanted to share their own recipes or have their favourite dishes reworked into healthy meals.
The result is a stunning second edition, featuring more quick, nutritious, energising and tasty recipes. Some of Australia's top athletes have contributed to the cookbook. Winning recipes include: Nathan Deakes' Minestrone; Michael Klim's Curry in a Hurry; Sarah Ryan's Asian Salmon Salad; and Petria Thomas' Mexican Chicken Cannelloni.
Taking inspiration from the first cookbook, Survival from the Fittest is the second cookbook from the AIS Department of Sports Nutrition, in partnership with Nestlé. The result is nutritious meals for active people who believe that healthy food can taste great.
