PEAK NUTRITION: SMART FUEL FOR OUTDOOR ADVENTURE
2020 National Outdoor Book Award Winner!
Instructional Category; Climbing partners Maria Hines, a James Beard–award winning chef, and Mercedes Pollmeier, an NSCA-certified strength and conditioning specialist and Level 2 nutritionist, decided that they’d had enough of packaged bars and goos. As a celebrated chef, Hines can make anything taste great, and Pollmeier knows the science behind exercise nutrition. On their long drives to crags, an idea blossomed: write a nutrition book for mountain sports.
Peak Nutrition details 100 simple and tasty recipes within the context of outdoor goals and body science: motivation, recovery, hydration; how our digestive system works; how food provides energy; effects of weather and altitude; the relationship between food, muscle, and cramping; how nutrition relates to mental and physical stress; and much more.
