These are the sugar-filled monsters we often reach for in climbing emergencies. But, there is another way....

Climbing can awaken the cookie monster in us, but you don't want to undo all the gains you have put so much effort into during your training by gorging on chocolate cake straight after. We often justify it by saying we will "climb it off", but we can't run away from the fact it's loads of sugar in one sitting.

What if we could replace this with a healthy alternative? Well, I'm here to offer you just that! Yes, a healthy chocolate cake...

Home-made Roasted Salted Almonds – Great Climbing Snack

Finding alternatives to sandwiches is a challenge.  I am forever thinking about which tasty morsel to shove in my pack when I go for days out climbing and, as I'm trying to avoid eating bread at the moment, it has become more difficult to just grab something on the go.

Great climbing fodder...21

The other day however, my friend Geri brought these tasty little morsels to the climbing centre and I can’t stop making and eating them.   When I gave them a go myself I found that they are quite easy to make (as long as you don't burn them!), much cheaper than the supermarket packs and, after some quick research, I realised they are really good for you too.  They're absolutely packed with vitamins, minerals and good fats that help to keep us healthy in all sorts of ways*.

Recipe for Roasted & Salted Almonds

Climbing Food // Super Duper no-wheat pancake

No Wheat PancakesWhen Rebecca Dent, GB Junior Climbing Team Assistant Manager and high Performance Nutritionist, told me about this recipe I have to confess that I was unsure, but I will give anything a go once and this one has grown on me considerably.  It's so flexible - you can add virtually anything to it to give it a different texture or flavour.  It can be sweet or savoury, which is great if you're in a rush and need quick healthy protein.
