    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.

    OK, I am not the target demographic for this book (which is aimed at endurance athletes such as road cyclists, rock climbers etc), but I found this book surprisingly interesting.

What also interested me is the impressively researched foreword (over 70 pages!), with detailed discussions about human metabolism and biochemistry. Scientific and creative all at once, I found it the most interesting book I have come across in a long time.

    Don't skip the introduction of this book—the authors describe the science behind sports nutrition in exceptional and clear scientific detail. It sounds like a chapter from Maffetone's "Big Book of Endurance Training," but follows with specific recipes supporting the scientific principles. The recipes taste good and pack well for rides, but often don't work well in the heat of the desert.

The rice balls fall apart, the egg and meat dishes are unsafe after 5 hours in 90+* heat, anything with chocolate melts, and many of the recipes don't taste great when hot. I stick with my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but now use the "Feed Zone" method of flattening slices of bread, dressing them, and rolling them for ease of eating on the go. Note that many of the recipes freeze well in the portable "containers" so you can make a complete batch to use over several long rides.

    This is a surprisingly technical cook book. I'm definitely not one of the athletes this book is made for but it offers a lot of low-carb, high-protein foods to take on the go. Some are pretty complicated and there is a variety of meals largely sweetened by fruits or maple syrup which isn't my favorite. There's also a lot of information about weight, how to get the most out of your work out, and what it takes to stay active. A bit too much work for a casual runner like myself but definitely intere This is a surprisingly technical cook book.

    I purchased this book not because I'm an athlete (I don't require a snack on my hour long walk) but because we travel a lot and need snacks other than pretzels and corn chips. The little homemade grab and goes in this book look to be the perfect homemade snacks to keep us on track. I haven't tried any as I just purchased and read the book on our last trip but I will start preparing some and freezing them for our next trip. They also will be perfect to have in the freezer for home snacking or a q I purchased this book not because I'm an athlete (I don't require a snack on my hour long walk) but because we travel a lot and need snacks other than pretzels and corn chips.

    Looking for real-food fuelling options for my long runs and upcoming ultra. Got to try some of these.

    A good balance of the science behind the choices and a varied collection of recipes. Plenty of options and information to keep you fueled for years to come.

    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 read through this book and immediately found a lot of recipes I'd like to try.

The detailed information on sports nutrition that kicks off the book is pretty impressive. I'd love to see something by these authors that's a more generalized approach to diet and nutrition; I'm at the point where I wish there was the equivalent of Soylent Green or rat "lab blocks" for humans, because I'm so sick of trying to figure out what I should be eating (and what I shouldn't). Also, it should be mentioned that, as a book, this is a beautiful design in terms of font use, and layout of recipes and photography.

    I was intimidated by the "Introduction" (50+ pages) but I am glad I read it before diving into the recipes or appendix of nutritional information. Everything was written in such an inviting and friendly way. It is clear with science, numbers and facts (calculating calorie deficits to glycogen storage in the body) to back up their recipes.

Recipes that work. Great ideas for kids, families, athletes, and to-go meal & snack prepping. Just a lot of foil and ziploc bags :( though I have altered some portables into small tupperwares.

    I've been cycling for a few years now and on long rides it's imperative to eat a small snack every hour or so. Starting to tire of the limited options of premade food, and especially tired of the condition known as gut rot I decided to look for homemade alternatives. This book came highly recommended by strangers on the internet. The book is full of great recipes, I've made a few of them and they are simple to follow and taste great!

    Pretty handy recipes. Better than gels and bars any day. I have been tweeking the recipes a bit to add whole grains for more fiber and nutritional value. Of course this lowers the glycemic index and is not the best choice for an endurance athlete in need of sugar and far from a bathroom. However, there are other instances and applications where the complex carbohydrates and fiber can be useful. Definitely one to keep on the shelf at the house.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. Tasty ideas for long, slower workouts. It has been good to get away from gels and PB&J sandwiches.

    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.
