On Your Next Ride, Eat Real Food Like Fig and Honey Rice Cakes
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 portable recipe, Fig and Honey Rice Cakes, a sweet snack that works well during a ride or as a between-meal pick-me-up.
Allen and Biju’s tip: We’ve put a gluten-free spin on the classic fig cookies that many of us grew up eating. These cakes make a sweet portable snack, but because of the excellent fiber that is in the dried fruit, they work even better as a snack following a workout or between meals. If figs aren’t your favorite, try raisins or dates instead.
