Efficiency

Plants don't run away
What is this blog turning into? I remember in 2010 when it started as a way to share the inside world of cycling...race tactics, race dynamics, travel stories and training tips. However over time it has shifted to share insights from long days on the bike, living cheap and pursuing a nutrition lifestyle that is sustainable and optimal.

Since I am vehemently opposed to supplements or even caffeine, I look to absorb the calories and nutrients I need from sources that are most efficient. I stress my body enough with pedal pushing or appeasing the cycling equipment buyers on my dismal ebay account (toque buy'n sell), why further confuse my endocrine system with poor food choices? So dear readers, if you enjoyed Dr. Neal Barnard's insight on a plant-based diet last week, here is a collection of short 1 minute videos discussing how after growing up on a cattle farm, he discovered a health solution that didn't involve animals.

A wise coach once said..."after finding the smooth path through the jungle, often times one misses the tangled chaos of the underbrush. But the smooth path is still twisty, undulating and it's destination unknown...is that not enough adventure for the young mind?"
