The Trailside Kitchen Method:

A 4-Week Program of Strategic Eating for Outdoor Adventurers

Sure, you exercise and know basic healthy eating habits, but let's get serious here. Is your performance inconsistent? One day you are killing it and the next...not so much. Are you constantly hungry every hour or two? Maybe you want to take your performance to the next level, hit new goals, and feel amazing? Or maybe you are happy with where you are at and just want to improve and refine, have accountability, and shake things up. Wherever you are at, I'm excited to have you here!

What you’ll learn in our 4-Week Program

Strategic eating is a step beyond “healthy.”

Eating strategically means understanding how food works in your body so that you can make food work for you.

As someone who loves to be outside, I know your focus is on getting the most enjoyment out of doing what you love.

That's where The Trailside Method comes in.

Throughout the four weeks, I encourage you to challenge conventional opinions on nutrition and learn what fuels you best.

Because let’s be real, when you are doing what you love, you want to perform at your best. Whether that is exercise, in your job, in your relationships, or in your community, the reality is when you feel great, you do everything the best!

So what are you waiting for? Your delicious journey awaits!
