Last time I talked about different foods that are worth including in your diet when ascending, living, and/or training at altitude. This week, I have a fantastic, portable, and tasty recipe that you can prep ahead of time and store in the freezer so you have some available to you at any time. These Strawberry Shortcake Energy Bites can be formed into golf ball sized portions or bars. Wrap them up and take them with you on your next altitude adventure instead of store-bought highly processed packaged bars and snacks.
The dates provide iron, while the vitamin C in the strawberries helps increase absorption. Both of these ingredients along with oats provide good quality carbohydrates that are balanced with heart healthy monounsaturated fats found in cashews.

Being from Colorado, we know altitude. Denver and the Front Range areas are roughly 5000+ feet, or a mile (1600 meters) high. This elevation, while nothing extreme, definitely presents a challenge to visitors.
Often times I am asked, “just how long can I rest while I recover from my injury/illness, before I start to lose my fitness level”? All of us are hesitant to give up the gains we have made from all of that training. Although this is not a straight forward question, there is plenty of enlightening research on this subject.
