Reviews for Feed Zone Portables
A Superb Resource
This book is an inspiration for anyone who wants to keep their on-the-go eating as 'real' as possible.
The opening section is an informative, clearly written overview of how nutrition and hydration work, generally and in the context of athletic activity. It explains how simple, home-made food can be superior to super-scientific sports bars, gels and drinks, without being puritanical or preachy about it.
I've only just started to try the recipes, but I can see that there's enough straightforward stuff in there for the non-cook not too feel intimidated. Obviously if you enjoy cooking, as I do, all the better.
Its authors are based in the USA, and, for athletes not based in north America, quantities need to be converted and getting some ingredients may be a challenge, but substituting is easy enough and suggestions are made.
I highly recommend this book. by Jason Harrison
