When a chef and a nutritionist climbed together, they shared a boredom of packaged bars and gels. Peak Nutrition is the result of their collaboration: a nutrition book for mountain sports.

  • Features

    • Maria Hines—a James Beard Award winning chef—can make anything taste great
    • Mercedes Pollmeier—an NSCA-certified strength and conditioning specialist and Level 2 nutritionist—knows the science behind exercise nutrition


    From the publisher: 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. The authors also explore shifting eating habits and ways to develop a healthier approach, whether bouldering, climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, trekking, or trail running. "Peak Profiles" offer food tips from elite athletes such as backcountry boarder Jeremy Jones and climber Sasha Diguilian and sample menus help readers plan what to prep and pack.
