Feed Zone Portables offers 75 all-new, easy, healthy recipes for portable snacks that taste great during exercise.

When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with pro 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 makeÃf ¢ ?s ¬" 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 shows why real food is 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.

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 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

Dr. Allen Lim and chef Biju Thomas are the authors of the best-selling Feed Zone Series of cookbooks including The Feed Zone Cookbook, Feed Zone Portables, and Feed Zone Table. Biju Thomas is the chef behind the menus of many successful restaurants in Denver and Boulder, Colorado. He has worked closely with professional cyclists includ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looking Forward to Trying These Recipes As someone who enjoys exercising a lot, I was interested in this book because it offered recipes specifically geared towards athletes. In this book all the recipes are portable or designed to be easily carried with you while exercising. I've read through the book and have noted quite a few recipes that I am looking forward to trying. I like the variety that is available and the fact that most of the recipes don't require too long to make. There are vegetarian and gluten-free options, so there should be something for everyone. I would definitely recommend this book for any athletes looking for portable meals that look delicious and can be used to enhance their training.

Editorial Reviews

"Food for a faster you. The recipes are simple, with generally eight ingredients or fewer, and take little time to prepare." - Outside "A book like this is invaluable. 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 "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 "Exercise physiologist Allen Lim, Ph.D. and chef Biju Thomas, authors of The Feed Zone cookbooks, have spent decades working with endurance athletes to find the balance between taste, sport-specific nutrition, and portability. One of their greatest contributions is the rice bar, a real-food version of the snack bar." - Men's Health "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 "More than 50 of the recipes are gluten-free, and most are vegetarian. All are designed for making quickly, and eating on the bike." - Bike Radar "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 "This book, co-authored by chef-to-the-cycling-stars [Biju] Thomas, is packed with healthy, at-home recipes for natural goodies that both satisfy hunger and keep you pedaling. Best of all, they're designed to go with you on the trail." - Dirt Rag "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 "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
