The Feed Zone Table Cookbook by Allen Lim
Enjoying a homemade meal with friends and family is a great way to nourish the body for life and sport. Dr. Lim and Chef Biju know that eating together promotes greater happiness and performance for professional athletes. Feed Zone Table will do the same for you.While athletes calibrate training and diet for better performance, it's a pursuit that often isolates them from friends and family, especially when it comes to the most social meal of the day: dinner. And athletes aren't the only ones eating dinner alone: research shows that most people are not in the habit of consistently eating with others. Drawing from his work with professional cyclists, along with extensive research from a full line-up of scientists, sociologists, and psychologists, Dr. Lim makes the case that we are who we eat with. The simple act of eating together nourishes emotional health and in turn has a tremendous impact on how the body absorbs nutrients. In fact, for athletes this social fuel is as important as chemical fuel. It's a compelling call for athletes and nonathletes alike to return to the dinner table.To inspire these family-style meals, Chef Biju Thomas delivers more than 100 all-new recipes. Serve up Sparkling Ginger Soda and Kimchee-Spiced Salad, Grilled Romaine and Miso & Maple-Marinated Cod, or Red Chicken with Baked Biriyani. Chef Biju rolls out easy techniques for making delicious fresh sauces and chopped slaws to add bright flavor to any dish. From drinks to dessert and everything in between, Feed Zone Table is filled with food that s fun to prepare and share.
