Introducing ‘Feed the Hike’, sustaining your hike with mind, body and diet.
Time spent in nature has been proven over and over to be the medicine we all need, the nutrients our bodies crave. It gives us mentally and physically the goodness that is essential to a healthy happy life, especially in this modern artificial fast paced world we now live in. The evidence of the health benefits have just been overwhelming and I also know through personal experience that yes Nature is the Nurture we need.
In this book I want to share some tips and ideas from my own experiences of many years with thousands and thousands of kilometres walked. You will also hear from well-seasoned hikers as they share with us their own tips and knowledge, perhaps helping to avoid making some silly mistakes, while letting us just focus more on making our journey a great one.
I have a guest writer and Physiotherapist, Damian Vance, he is sharing with us some of his knowledge on achieving and keeping your body in prime condition. Damian will also be giving us those important tips on what you can do on the trail if things go wrong.
You will find a chapter on Menu Planning and on whatEquipment you might take with you on the trail as this can be daunting when planning a long hike.
There is also Trail Foods that I have personally tried and tested throughout my hiking life. With my ideas and recipes, I hope to help you avoid many of the prepacked foods and add more healthy choices into your menu planning for your journey. I also included a chapter about Dehydrating, this is something I am asked about a lot so I am excited to share my knowledge with you all.
