Pasta Salad with Olives and Beets Will Help You Recover from Your Ride

The Feed Zone Cookbook by Dr. Allen Lim and Chef Biju Thomas is packed with 160 athlete-friendly recipes that are delicious, simple to prepare, and ready to fuel your rides. The book includes breakfasts, portable snacks like Allen Lim’s famous rice cakes, after-ride dishes, dinners, desserts, and recovery drinks.

With the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, we’re pleased to present this post-ride meal, Pasta Salad with Olives and Beets, a sweet and savory meal that will restore lost sodium and refuel your muscles with a mix of simple and complex carbs.

Here’s a tip from Allen and Biju on how to make it: We don’t like to boil and then drain vegetables since nutrients are lost that way. Instead, microwave the beets for this salad and then quickly sauté them, which imparts a great flavor and sweetness.
