4 Nutrition Tips for Outdoor Adventurers

Since the beginning, I’ve wanted The Adventures in Parenthood Project to provide some hands-on resources and a well-rounded scope of the challenges and circumstances unique to outdoor adventurers.

Upon returning to Canada, her love for outdoor adventure grew alongside a new love in her life, her (now husband) Mark, who also enjoyed hiking and scrambling. Over the years they began to tackle bigger objectives and Tanya developed a fairly extensive (and impressive) bucket list of trails, treks and peaks she wanted to “tag” prior to settling down and starting a family.
