Eating and drinking are more than a necessity to you—they’re a hobby. You’re willing to add 11 miles to your morning commute for a perfectly crafted latte, and you spend your weekends either trying out new restaurants or trying out new recipes (putting to use your new Maldon sea salt collection and Santoku knife, of course). Much like a chef, you care about what goes into your body as well as its presentation. Here are five foodie finds to add to your wish list.
Feed Zone Table cookbook
While training often takes you away from the dinner table, this cookbook—from chef Biju Thomas and sports physiologist Allen Lim—encourages you to get back to eating together with more than 100 athlete-friendly recipes. It features family-style dishes, new cooking techniques and stunning food photography, as well as new research that shows how social meals can benefit your athletic performance. Now’s the time to start reaping those rewards!
Clif Family Winery il Ciclista gift set
From the family who brings you Clif Bars, this gift sets you up for a gastronomically perfect day of riding. Pop in your water bottle and head out in your cycling cap with a case of assorted Clif Bars, then come home to a bottle of Rhone-style Bici Red (bubble bath not included).
I Love the Smell of Tire Rubber Coffee Mug
This 10-ounce ceramic mug is an Instagram post waiting to happen; it allows you to both caffeinate pre-ride and share with the world how you spend your Saturday mornings while everyone else is sleeping in. Can you say hashtag winning?
Northern Brewer Jacked-Up Nitro Fully Loaded Cold Brew Starter Kit
Now you can enjoy the creaminess of nitro and smooth flavor of cold brew whenever you want. This complete small-batch cold-brew keg system dispenses nitrogen-charged beverages, typically something you’d only be able to enjoy at a hipster coffee cart in Portland or Austin. You’re welcome.
Ironman Swim,Bike, Run Apron
Perfect your favorite recipes or become king or queen of the grill, all while sporting your M-dot pride (in a much less permanent way than a tattoo).
