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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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
