The Feed Zone Portables :: Skratch Labs’ new Cookbook for Athletes

I’ve been poking around trying new recipes and it’s finally time to share the power. If knowledge is power, then it’s power I’m sharing. If you are or care for an endurance athlete, you need this kind of power. Thousands of dollars are squandered on terrible, engineered foods that cause gastric distress, and oddly enough, […]

On the Southern edge of the Tennessee border, a small town by the name of South Pittsburg whirs with the sounds of a foundry, of melting pots, sand blasting and seasoning machines.

Skratch :: Sports Nutrition for Foodies

I like water. I dislike sports drinks. Most rides I typically only take plain water. Until I tried Skratch for the first time, a bottle might have sat in my bottle cage untouched for long stretches. My first try with Skratch, I found my bottles empty before the middle of a long climb.

Each year as the sun edges further and further to the South, we cuddle up in blankets with hot chocolate and eat rich foods, something our Paleolithic ancestors would have done in order to gain fat for warmth and fuel stores.

Tuna in Thyme :: Lunch with mtbchick

Of all the interesting herbs growing in our garden, Thyme has been the most surprising. I have never, at least in recent memory, used fresh Thyme before now. Thyme is usually delivered to my cooking vessels via a glass bottle with a plastic shaker lid– dried and less flavorful than fresh, perhaps even stale and […]
