I feel like over the last few years, “newsletter” has turned into a dirty word associated with spamming your inbox. I want to break that cycle and tell you a little about how I define it. Mainly so you know I am a real person on the other end of those monthly emails who you can reply to for a chat about all things nutrition and food outside!
My goal of the newsletter community is free education. No strings attached.
For one, because I am a teacher and love sharing about a topic I am passionate about. And two, because the conversations that are sparked from those newsletters allow me to serve people the best and give them exactly what they need, which makes me a better business owner.
So before I email you, this is me:
And this is my favorite thing to do in the world and where I get my inspiration:
This is my hunk of a husband, named Pat, who won’t take a normal picture to save his life:
But at least our dog Rosie is a model:
JK. We’re not a photographically artsy bunch.
Also, Pat has spent the last two years opening a brewery in Santa Rosa, CA called Seismic. So although healthy food is a big priority for us, we’re also real people and occasionally eat like this:
I tell you this not only to brag about his accomplishments, as is my wifely duty, but also so you believe me when I tell you I run a judgment free program and newsletter community and am not trying to suck the joy out of life.
In the newsletter and for recipes, there are two things I focus on:
One is Pre-Trail Food and Nutrition. Because amazing days outside start at home. How you eat consistently is how you’ll perform consistently. This is a value carried throughout my whole business and is the foundation of the Trailside Kitchen Method Programs.
The other focus is On-The-Trail oriented. I will be breaking education and recipes into three different categories.
The categories are:
Full Access Food: This is for outdoor adventures where your car is readily available, such as car camping.
Heavy Food: This is for when your activities are only a short walk or hike from your car, such as lake activities or climbing.
Light Food: This is for when you need to carry as little as possible, such as cycling and backpacking.
To get in on the magic each month, you can sign up for the newsletter community below.
