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.

    This product as just what we needed to throw away all the gut churning, wind producing gels and energy bars that mid to long distance cyclists need to refuel mid ride. Easy to prepare, tasty recipes with real ingredients.

    Comment on this review

    "Food for a faster you. The recipes are simple, with generally eight ingredients or fewer, and take little time to prepare." -- Outside "Primarily designed for cyclists to eat while riding, [these recipes] work just as well for runners when they've stopped running for exercise and started running to get to where they need to go on time." -- Runner's World "You won't look at on-the-bike fueling the same way again." -- Triathlete magazine "More than 50 of the recipes are gluten-free, and most are vegetarian. All are designed for making quickly, and eating on the bike." -- BikeRadar.com "This is the perfect book to plan what to eat on the bike, especially if you've found yourself dreading having to eat one more packaged bar or energy gel on long training rides. The recipes are also really easy, making it perfect for those who don't like to spend lots of time in the kitchen." -- Active.com "The genius of "Feed Zone Portables" is this: The book sits at the intersection of reality and practicality. With a little pre-planning, these items (all easy, all developed in Thomas' home kitchen) can be taken with you for nourishment on a hike, on a ride--or simply to work or on a road trip." -- 5280 magazine "Whether you're like me or just a casual Sunday cyclist, you're going to love "Feed Zone Portables." Don't be surprised if you ride longer and harder than ever before." -- Taylor Phinney, professional cyclist for BMC Racing Team and 2-time Olympian "My gold medal ride in London was fueled by Biju's Oatmeal." -- Kristin Armstrong, professional cyclist and 2-time Olympic gold medalist, 2-time UCI World Time Trial Champion "Eating real, flavorful, and simple food was a revelation." -- Tim Johnson, professional cyclist for Cannondale P/B Cyclocrossworld.com ""Feed Zone Portables" introduces an entirely new genre of food for training and exercise." -- Timmy Duggan, professional cyclist for Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff, USPRO National Champion and Olympian "I can attest that there is a direct correlation between these portables and improved performance and recovery." -- Davis Phinney, Olympic bronze medalist, USPRO National Champion, 2-time Tour de France stage winner "After being introduced to The Feed Zone, I began to realize there was another way to eat that actually nourished me as an athlete. I didn't have to live off of processed bars, which dehydrated me and upset my stomach." -- Matt Segal, professional rock climber for North Face Athlete Team "Recipes from Feed Zone are my new, not-so-secret training tool. They deliver huge taste and even bigger performance benefits." -- Rebecca Rusch, professional cyclist and 4-time winner Leadville Trail 100, 3-time 24-Hour Solo Mountain Bike World Champion "I never bonk when I have rice cakes in my pocket." -- Evelyn Stevens, professional cyclist for Team Specialized-lululemon, 2-time U.S. national time trial champion
