VeloPress The Feed Zone Cookbook: Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes

When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with pro cyclists, he found a peloton weary of food. For years the sport's elite athletes had been underperforming on bland fare and processed bars and gels. Science held few easy answers for nutrition in the real world, where hungry athletes must buy ingredients; make meals; and enjoy eating before, during, and after each workout, day after day.

So Lim set out to make eating delicious and practical. His journey began with his mom, 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 in the most demanding test kitchens. Now, in The Feed Zone Cookbook: Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes, Thomas and Lim share their energy-packed, wholesome recipes to make meals easy to prepare, delicious to eat, and better for performance.

The Feed Zone Cookbook provides 150 delicious recipes that even the busiest athletes can prepare in less time than it takes to warm up for a workout. With simple recipes requiring just a handful of ingredients, Biju and Lim show how easy it is for athletes to prepare their own food, whether at home or on the go.

The Feed Zone Cookbook strikes the perfect balance between science and practice so that athletes will change the way they think about food, replacing highly processed food substitutes with real, nourishing foods that will satisfy every athlete's cravings.

"Not only did Biju and Allen help salvage a disastrous start to my 2011 season and turn it into one of my best, they actually got me into the kitchen, cooking these recipes. — Levi Leipheimer, professional cyclist for the Radioshack Pro Cycling Team, from his foreword to The Feed Zone Cookbook

"The Feed Zone Cookbook is full of recipes from Allen and Biju that epitomize the athlete’s two greatest purposes in sitting down for a meal: to optimize performance and to maximize the pleasure that comes from eating." — Timmy Duggan, professional cyclist for the Liquigas-Cannondale Pro Cycling Team, from his foreword to The Feed Zone Cookbook

"Biju makes cooking high-quality, nourishing food easy. His recipes are mind-blowingly simply, but their flavors and quality are as high as a five-star restaurant. Biju will inspire you to want to cook." — Matthew Busche, professional cyclist for the Radioshack Pro Cycling Team and U.S. national road cycling champion

"Allen Lim has been an inspiration for the way I eat since I became a pro cyclist… Chef Biju has shown me how simple it is to prepare good, quality food despite the hectic lifestyle of a pro athlete. Together they have found a way to simplify that art of eating right for athletes without gimmicks or hard-to-follow recipes." — Lucas Euser, professional cyclist for Team SpiderTech and member of the 2008 USA National Team

"Anyone can train when things are going well, but only a true champion can train when everything is going wrong. Similarly, eating healthy isn’t always easy, but a healthy diet is fundamental to peak performance. The Feed Zone Cookbook will help you eat right." — Ian D. MacGregor, former professional cyclist for Kelly Benefit Strategies-OptumHealth

"When Allen and Biju rolled up in their RV to prepare healthy and simply foods [at the Tour of California], it was exactly what we needed. The food they prepared was a game changer." — Jason McCartney, professional cyclist for the Radioshack Pro Cycling Team and two-time U.S. national time trial champion
