If you want to be a fast, strong cyclist, you might want to learn how to cook, says sports physiologist Allen Lim.
Lim, a sports physiologist for the Team RadioShack pro cycling team, says one of the reasons he decided to co-author “The Feed Zone Cookbook” with local chef Biju Thomas was that “skills in the kitchen, rather than skills on the bike, were such a limiting factor for so many of the athletes I was working with.”
Lim and Thomas will offer a demonstration of recipes from the new cookbook at Boulder's Sterling-Rice Group demonstration kitchen, 1808 13th Street, on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. Cyclist Taylor Phinney will be their sous chef for the evening. Registration is at aneveninginthefeedzone.com.
One of the reasons Lim wants athletes to learn how to cook is so they can eat “real food.”
