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.

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.

"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." You will be rewarding your body with the goodness within these pages. 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. I told Allen to change the name to Gold Medal Oatmeal. It took a team to win--I left my nutrition to the experts and they left the ride to me." -- Kristin Armstrong, professional cyclist and 2-time Olympic gold medalist, 2-time UCI World Time Trial Champion "Good food may only be a portion of what it takes to ride professionally, but to me it has been truly life changing. Eating real, flavorful, and simple food was a revelation." -- Tim Johnson, professional cyclist for Cannondale P/B ""Feed Zone Portables" introduces an entirely new genre of food for training and exercise, fit for the road, trail, snow, or anything in between. Take a few minutes to cook yourself with real food and you will notice the benefits in both flavor and your performance." -- Timmy Duggan, professional cyclist for Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff, USPRO National Champion and Olympian "Having personally handed out hundreds of "Feed Zone" rice cakes to some of the best athletes on the planet, I can attest that there is a direct correlation between these portables and improved performance and recovery. Simply put, this is very healthy, creative food developed by smart people who care...and the taste is sublime!" -- 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, p
