“Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork.”
It is time to see the forest instead of the trees.
The food you put in your mouth will impact more than your snowshoeing. Health care costs are escalating in synch with disease incidence rates – which is synonymous with disaster. http://www.snowshoemag.com/2011/09/18/part-one-the-price-of-convenience/
Our society is overfed yet undernourished and this includes endurance athletes. Billions of dollars per year are wasted treating symptoms and designing new therapies, medications and procedures to continue to treat symptoms.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
The most accurate barometer of a food’s nutritional value is its micronutrient density.
Our fixation with macronutrients – carbohydrate, fat and protein – and calories is excessive.
Consumption of a plant-based, whole foods diet eliminates the need to track grams, calories, portions or macronutrient percentages.

What you put in your body via your gastrointestinal tract [GI] is your inside link to the outside world. It will help or hinder your desired snowshoeing outcomes.
Your GI tract filters what enters your bloodstream and what is discarded.
Your immune system is profoundly impacted by your gut health.
Your immune system will help determine whether your snowshoeing experience is one of effort or struggle.
Plant-based, whole foods provide an array of nutrients you need to excel.
”The first wealth is health.”
Nobody requires perfect nutrition like endurance athletes.
The arduous nature of our sport requires full-time awareness that redefines nutritional precision.
Whole, plant-based foods provide the optimal and varied nutrient-dense vitamins and minerals to help your body thrive.
