On our final podcast of 2011 we review the latest VeloPress publication The Feed Zone Cook Book, by Biju Thomas and Allen Lim. Chef Biju and Dr. Lim vetted countless meals with the world's best endurance athletes in the most demanding test kitchens. Here, 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 includes:
I give the book and overall rating of A for delivering affordable, easy to make meals that inspire even the novice to ramp up their nutrition!
Also on the podcast today, I update my own training and discuss what you need to be doing as we head into the new year! In addition, I review the INOV-8 Recolite 190. An all-purpose hiker, this light weight sandal gets high marks on comfort and looks, and serves a suitable shoe for light running and cross training. At just 190 g, you'l be hard pressed to find a comparable sandal for everyday use and recreation. With all that INOV-8 packs into their shoes, the Recolites fill a variety of roles and are competitively priced around the internet. Compared to my Keen sandals, these are more sure footed and lighter. Definitely, a worthy buy. I rate them as and A- only for the slightly larger than expected fit; though seems to have little impact on my comfort or performance.
Finally, we want to remind everyone that the final Rudy Project Giveaway is up on Jan 1. Keep those questions and comments coming to our email. And don't forget to leave us a review on I-Tunes.
