I read through this book and immediately found a lot of recipes I'd like to try. Any cookbook that makes you want to head for the kitchen is immediately worth four stars. Let's hope the recipes pan out.

The only reason I'm not giving this five stars is because:
-- I haven't tried the recipes (yet).
-- I was not a fan of the athlete endorsements of the authors' work spread throughout the book. Beautiful photographs, but seemed a bit too self-congratulatory.
-- A bit too much jumping around (i.e., whe
I had a hard time planning these portable meals the first few times I made them but practice makes perfect. We use the rice balls and sticky bites for ultra running. They have been a hit on aid stations and among friends in training runs as well. Bottom Line: Real food is better tolerated and provides energy and hydration in a stressful state.

I read this and The Feed Zone Cookbook and I can't wait to try some of these recipes out on my workouts. I'm a triathlete and the normal gels, bars, and whatnot just aren't settling on my stomach anymore. These recipes looked very easy and are from ingredients that I would have in my kitchen normally. Can't wait to try them out.
Great recipes for on-the-bicycle eating and post workout snacks.
Shortcut ideas and tips & tricks around packaging your portables are excellent.

I certainly enjoyed some of the eye opening tips and facts regarding some very "well known" athletic fueling tips, and the ease in which these meals can be enjoyed while in the midst of endurance activities.

Good recipes that I can't wait to try this season! There was a lot of scientific nutrition talk in the beginning that I found hard to get through.
the science part was an a lot to absorb.
at the moment this book is to give me an outline on what to feed my junior cyclists during training...which it does.
biju's recipes are straight forward, adaptable and yummy.
Amanda Vance
Tasty ideas for long, slower workouts. It has been good to get away from gels and PB&J sandwiches. I don't however see myself utilizing these for races...I need a lot more refining for mess control.
Loved this - it had some great (and weird!) ideas. I want a copy for home!
