When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with pro cyclists like Levi Leipheimer and Christian Vande Velde, he found a peloton weary of food. 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.
The Feed Zone Cookbook provides 150 flavorful 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.

* Portable whole foods, including Lim’s famous rice cakes and more

In a reversed triathlon format, she finished the 5K run, 15 mile bike ride and 500 meter swim in 1:27:18, about a minute ahead of the second place finisher. After a lack-luster run, Peasley came from behind on the bike and was the second woman into pool. “I was dissapointed in my run performance,” Peasley said. “Surprisingly, my legs felt fresh when I got on to the bike. I was able to pedal faster than I have at any race so far this year.” As for nutrition, Peasley still relied on Clif Shot bloks and Pure Sport sports drink. “I had to rethink my nutrition strategy, since the run was first and I usually fuel on the bike for the run. I front-loaded with extra Shot bloks before the race, and made sure I had a good amount of Pure Sport when I got onto the bike.” Next up for Marie is the Copperman Triathlon on August 6th.
