Eat, hike, and slay. What to eat before a hike.

Before hitting the trails, it’s important to fuel your body with the right foods! Whether you’re an avid hiker or new to the trails, complex carbs and lean proteins are key for a successful hike.

Here are a few of my go-to sources for a pre-hike fuel-up.

Whole-Wheat Toast With Avocado Spread

Avocado toast is a great snack before a hike.

In this post, Kim Yawitz, RD, a dietitian in St. Louis states, “Avocado is a good source of healthy fat and fiber. These both help keep blood sugar levels stable and promote feelings of fullness.”

Boiled Eggs

Eggs facilitate building and repairing tiny tears in muscle. They’re also low in calories and easy to boil and store for meal prep.

Sweet Peppers with Vegan Ranch Dip

Peppers are low in calories but pack a bunch of nutrients like vitamin C, E and beta-carotene.

Trail mix, nuts, seeds, and energy bars are also great on-the-go snacks!

Lastly, remember to aim for a balanced meal with 45%-65% carbohydrates, 10%-35% protein, and 20%-35% fat.

In-Joy your hike!
