    Biju Thomas is the chef behind the menus of many successful restaurants in Denver and Boulder, Colorado. He has worked closely with professional cyclists including Levi Leipheimer, Lance Armstrong, and Christian Vande Velde to improve their eating habits for better performance. Biju is also a contributor to Map My Fitness, one of the largest social networks in the sports industry.

    Allen Lim, Ph.D. is sports physiologist for Team RadioShack pro cycling team. Prior to RadioShack, Lim worked with Jonathan Vaughters and the Garmin pro cycling team. Lim has worked closely with the top U.S. cyclists, including Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, Christian Vande Velde, David Zabriskie, and countless others. He continues to shape the future heroes of the sport in his work with the Livestrong Developmental Squad, which in includes standout Taylor Phinney. Lim’s experience is not exclusive to men’s professional cycling. Early in his career he worked extensively with women’s cycling teams and much of his research has been outside of the sport of cycling.

    The Feed Zone Cookbook offers 150 athlete-friendly recipes that are simple, delicious, and easy to prepare.

    When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with professional cyclists, he found a peloton weary of eating. 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. 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.

    The Feed Zone Cookbook includes

    • 150 delicious recipes illustrated with full-color photographs
    • Allen Lim’s take on the science and practice of food
    • Portable whole foods, including Lim's famous rice cakes and more
    • Dozens of quick-prep meals for before and after workouts
    • Shortcuts, substitutions, and techniques to save time in the kitchen
    • Over 100 gluten-free and vegetarian alternatives to favorite dishes
