Confused about how, when and what to eat while planning your days running on the trails? Us too.
DPMR Board members Renee Elsdon Jacobs and Meggie Inouye sat down in conversation with active-lifestyle nutritional advisor Tara DelloIacono Thies, and dug into planning and problem-solving your way to eating with purpose for fueling your next big outdoor adventures with just a bit more focus – before, during and after.
Tara, the CEO of Summit Nutrition Strategy, is a mother, runner, adventureprenur, dietitian nutritionist (RDN), and advocate for healthy eating as the wingman in living an active lifestyle outdoors. When discussing the importance of a proper food plan, she says “so many endurance athletes are unintentionally and/or unknowingly underfueling big adventures that then limits their ability to get where they dream of going and feeling the way they dream of feeling.”

- Targets we discussed for carbs, sodium, etc. — This sheet has most of the ranges we talked about and a place to write in your own plan.

- Collagen (with vitamin C): 15-20 grams of collagen + 50 mg of vitamin C from fruit, juice, or supplement 30-60 minutes before your workout — I personally like Great Lakes Gelatin Company because it is tasteless and dissolves well in everything from water, oatmeal, soup and coffee! I usually eat an orange or banana right away in the morning to get some vitamin C in my system. Vital Protein collagen peptides comes with vitamin C added, but it requires more stirring to dissolve and I am not sure how well the vitamin C will hold up to the heat of coffee, soup, or oatmeal.
