Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin offers healthy recipes in her first cookbook


Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin was competing in French Polynesia when she was served traditional Polynesian poke.

“Every single place we went — French swimmers, European swimmers, local swimmers and us — they gave us Polynesian poke,” Coughlin said. “It was so good… One of the last days I was there, someone showed me how to make it.”

That recipe is one of many in her first cookbook “Cook to Thrive: Recipes to Fuel Body and Soul,” released earlier this year. She describes it as “a little bit of everything.”
