On the longer trail run Sunday, i wanted to try some real food instead of gels. Why? for longer trail runs, i just get very tired of gels and stop eating. That is bad! So I was recommended a book called Feed Zone Portables. This is a Date and Almond Baked Rice Ball and I also made a Potato and Sweet Ginger version. Very tasty! Each ball is about a 100 calories with a sweet/savory taste. There are endless variations and lots of other interesting recipes to try in the book plus some solid facts about nutrition and fueling for endurance activities. I can't wait to try various other recipes.
