    1. 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. I started reading this book because I was looking for lunchbox ideas - the recipes are nothing like anything I normally make, so they picqued my curiosity; they do also sound delicious, with interesting and varied flavour combinations. What also interested me is the impressively researched foreword (over 70 pages!), wit [...]

    2. 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.

    3. 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 cho [...]

    4. 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 where [...]

    5. 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. I'm not a tri- athlete but I'm a meal-prep-er who came across this book by chance and am now looking at other cookbooks and books by the Feed Zone and Skratch [...]

    6. 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!

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    10. 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.

    11. 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 racesI need a lot more refining for mess control.

    13. 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.

    14. I can't wait to try out the recipes. I spent this time looking through and figuring how to incorporate them into my daily and training nutrition.
