Overview

The Feed Zone Cookbook is a no-fuss guide to preparing good food that will change the way endurance athletes eat.

With refreshingly simple ingredients that measure up to the demands of training and racing, Biju’s recipes are easy to follow and big on flavor. His tantalizing mix of salty, sweet, and savory satisfies an athlete’s cravings and prepares the body for top performance.

Eat like the pros. Feed Zone meals are the perfect balance of science and practice from Dr. Allen Lim and Chef Biju Thomas.

When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with pro cyclists, he found a peloton weary of food. The sport’s elite athletes were underperforming on bland fare and processed bars and gels. So Lim set out to make eating delicious and practical. His journey took him inside the kitchens of the Tour de France and delivered him to a dinner party where he met celebrated chef Biju Thomas. Chef Biju and Dr. Lim vetted countless meals with the world’s best endurance athletes. Now they share their energy-packed, wholesome recipes to make your meals easy to prepare, delicious to eat, and better for your performance.
