    Cycling is a demanding sport on both the mind and body. There are so many elements to keep in balance including training, rest, social and family life, work, relationships and nutrition to name a few.

    As the trend towards eating more real foods on the bike grows, I hear more and more questions about eating raw nuts, bars made with bacon and cheese or nut butters while racing or training.

    Simple and delicious cycling food: With race season just around the corner, I have visions of plenty of car travel, plane travel, time to and from hotels and host housing in team vehicles. Not to mention idle time resting with the legs up and large bottles of water in hand. So, what’s an athlete to eat between meals in their down time and travel time? Want to change it up a bit this season?

    Cycling Nutrition: With “off” season in full swing for many cyclists, the same questions always start pouring in, “how do I lose weight in the off season?” “How can I not gain back weight in the off season?” or “should I stop eating carbs?” The last one always floors me. No you should not stop eating carbs…

    Ever find yourself mid-season or end of season with no excitement for the bike? Ever feel grey, with low libido, extremely tired and struggling to get through a regular day? There may be a culprit you haven’t considered: adrenal fatigue.

    One of the joys of cycling and an active lifestyle is a seemingly unstoppable appetite allowing you to eat more calories than you otherwise could. Of course from nourishing foods :). However, some athletes deliberately choose a vegetarian or even a vegan lifestyle, whether by choice or for performance.
