Long distance backpackers walk thousands of miles on trails such as the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Continental Divide trail, and thus have increased calorie needs to fuel long hiking days and overnight recovery. Written by a registered dietitian and avid thru-hiker, The Dietitian’s Resupply Box teaches easy to follow plant-based meal planning for hikers looking to get the most nutrition out of their resupply boxes. Readers will receive basic nutrition information, sample menus and meal ideas, as well as recipes and tips for dehydrating food. Whether you’re a vegetarian, omnivore, vegan, or just looking to add more nutrient-rich meals to your resupply box, this guide will help you stay healthy and optimize your meals on a long-distance trail.
There are two things that matter in this world - food and hiking. That's the way I see things anyway. Here, you'll find a mixture of thoughts relating to both nutrition and wilderness adventures, specifically, what it takes to be healthy both on and off the trail. Because we can't walk too far if we don't have the right fuel, and the right fuel happens to be good for both your body and the world. I hope you'll take a look around, learn something about nutrition, and be inspired to go on a long walk in the mountains!
