I’m addicted to watching the Tour de France. It’s an amazing athletic event, and the images (at least on HD) are simple astonishing.
There was a really great “side story” on tonight’s Tour broadcast about Dr. Allen Lim, a PhD sports physiologist. The segment was specifically about his rice cakes – a real food equivalent of a commercial energy bar used by the Radio Shack riders. http://dailyburn.com/recipes/dr_allen_lim_rice_cakes.
I haven’t made these yet, but I’m pretty certain they are going to be really good and – more importantly – a great call/energy food for busy students and residents. He has some other recipes that would probably be good on call energy food, too
Here’s a video on how to make these rice cakes. http://www.cycle-ops.com/videos.html?id=50
