Ok so climbers are run on cake, we all know we should be healthy and this will help us improve but there’s a reason all climbing walls sell epic snacks, cake and chocolate. Betamonkeys nailed it with their grading system:
Check out more epic betamonkeys stuff here: http://betamonkeys.co.uk the book is really good too!
Jn all seriousness though we need to improve what we eat, being cleaner and focusing on good carbs and protein for energy and muscle recovery. I found the original recipe for some snacks at climb magazine here
We’ve tweaked this however to…
The original nutrition values were: Energy: 113 cal • Fat: 3.5g • Carbs: 19.5g • Protein: 4.5g • Sodium: 30mg • Fiber: 2g
Almond milk increases the fat slightly but improves overall protein and vitamin intake, lowering the maple syrup lowers the unnecessary sugar and the chia seeds add additional protein, creaminess and vitamins.
I’ve found these hit my need for a boost mid session and give me a nice bit of additional protein at the end.
