Feed Zone Portables: A Cookbook of On-The-Go Food for Athletesby Biju Thomas
Synopses & Reviews
When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with professional cyclists, he found athletes weary of processed bars and gels and the same old pasta. So Lim joined professional chef Biju Thomas to make eating delicious and practical. When the menu changed, no one could argue with the race results. Their groundbreaking Feed Zone Cookbook brought the favorite recipes of the pros to everyday athletes.
In their new cookbook Feed Zone Portables, Chef Biju and Dr. Lim offer 75 all-new portable food recipes for cyclists, runners, triathletes, mountain bikers, climbers, hikers, and backpackers. Each real food recipe is simple, delicious during exercise, easy to make—and ready to go on your next ride, run, climb, hike, road trip, or sporting event.
Feed Zone Portables expands on the most popular features of The Feed Zone Cookbook with more quick and easy recipes for athletes, beautiful full-color photographs of every dish, complete nutrition data, tips on why these are the best foods for athletes, and time-saving ways on how to cook real food every day.
In his introduction to Feed Zone Portables, Dr. Lim makes the case for real food as a more easily digestible, higher-performance source of energy than prepackaged fuel products. He shows how much athletes really need to eat and drink at different exercise intensities and in cold or hot weather. Because the body burns solid and liquid foods differently, Lim defines a new approach for athletes to drink for hydration and eat real food for energy.
Feed Zone Portables includes
• 75 all-new recipes that taste great during exercise: Rice Cakes, Two-Bite Pies, Griddle Cakes, Waffles, Baked Eggs, Sticky Bites, Rice Balls, Ride Sandwiches, Baked Cakes, and Cookies
• A smart introduction on how real food works better for athletes
• More than 50 no-fuss gluten-free recipes, including great-tasting cookies and cakes
• More than 50 vegetarian recipes
With the recipes, ideas, and guidance in Feed Zone Portables, athletes will nourish better performance with real food and learn to prepare their own creations at home or on the go.
FEED ZONE PORTABLES
A Cookbook of On-the-Go Food for Athletes
Biju Thomas and Allen Lim, PhD
Food athletes crave, made from scratch.
Real food is a revolutionary idea in a sports world crowded with bars, blocks, and gels making bold claims about performance. While working in the trenches of professional cycling physiologist Allen Lim found a growing number of riders setting aside prepackaged “food” they were paid to promote in favor of small sandwiches, fresh pastries, and even leftover pizza. When the menu changed, no one could argue with the race results.
In Feed Zone Portables, Dr. Allen Lim and Chef Biju Thomas debut 75 portable foods that taste great, are digested quickly, and help you perform at your best.
Rice cakes, baked eggs, cookies, and waffles pack in the nutrition you need without the taste fatigue and queasy stomach that follow a fistful of sports bars and gels. Wrap up your favorite flavors with these made-from-scratch recipes, both savory and sweet.
Feed Zone Portables will forever change how you think about food and its role in performance.
