The Feed Zone Cookbook FZC_96dpi_400pw_str_NOLOGO“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 helped me fill my gas tank for many years: everything from breakfast burritos in Georgia to rice cakes and scrambled eggs in the Alps. Some of Lim’s foods are scientific and others just feel good, but one ingredient was always present: passion from the Asian Equation.” — Christian Vande Velde, professional cyclist for Team Garmin-Cervélo

“If sport is your thing, the intro alone is worth the purchase of this book, as Allen shares complex diet theory in layman’s terms for all  to comprehend. One can totally rediscover the kitchen as a performance-enhancing yet delicious tool.” — Peter Stetina, professional cyclist for Team Garmin-Barracuda

The Feed Zone Cookbook is not just a cookbook; it’s a lesson about food. Allen and Biju teach you how to eat, when to eat, and what quality ingredients to use to make you feel better in training, racing and just life in general. This book has become a staple in my daily cooking.” — Kristen Peterson, professional triathlete

The Feed Zone Cookbook is a dream come true! I’m on the go non-stop coaching athletes, teaching classes, and training and racing, so Allen and Biju’s high-quality meals and snacks help me perform my best and keep me from crashing. The Feed Zone Cookbook shows you how you should be eating.” — Tawnee Prazak, MS, CSCS, elite triathlete and certified triathlon coach

“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

“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 

“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

“I wish Biju had cooked for me all those years I raced because it would have made me faster!” — Axel Merckx, former professional cyclist, Olympic medalist, and Belgian national champion

“There are two important forces at work here. An elegantly simple, practical application of macro- and micronutrients, and how they are used by our bodies. This is the wizardry of Dr. Lim. Chef Biju [contributes] romantic notions of taste; the use of our most familiar, simple ingredients; and a measured, sure-handed confidence in the kitchen. These elements are all brought together in a whirling, laughing, steaming, sizzling crescendo of an athlete’s most favorite thing: food.” — Jason Donald, former professional cyclist for Kelly Benefit Strategies-OptumHealth

“Biju is a self-taught chef who now works closely with Team RadioShack. He has spent the majority of his life preparing simple, yet highly nutritious food fit for the most demanding sport in the world. After flipping through a few pages of The Feed Zone Cookbook, it became apparent that just putting some thought into your next meal is all that is needed. [The book requires] no fancy ingredients or expensive products; you don’t even need a lot of time. Not only will you start to see huge improvements with your workouts on the bike, you’ll even improve your mood all around.  After all, you are what you eat.” — Craig Lewis for NBC Sports
