One thing I quickly came to learn when I first started running and on any one of my other favorite outdoor adventures (hiking, mountain biking, camping, birding, among others) is how important nutrition is. Whether that’s the perfect breakfast to fuel a hard hour-long run or just packing the right snacks for a full day on the trail scouting for birds, I’m useless without fueling properly.
I also just like to eat good food.
Our team at Women’s Running loves to provide you with really great nutrition content to fuel your run, and our coverage has only improved with access to sister titles Clean Eating, Vegetarian Times, and Better Nutrition, which focus 100 percent of their energy on delivering delectable food content. Now, with the launch of Outside+, our members also get access to that great content.
Just the other night I made this Instant Pot creamy chickpea curry from Vegetarian Times. It couldn’t have been easier: All I had to do was chop an onion, garlic, and ginger (and open a few cans) and let the instant pot do the rest. The sweet smell of coconut had my mouth watering while I cleaned up my work from the day and waited for it to finish cooking. After cleaning our plates, my husband and I were both thrilled that there would be leftovers for the next day.
Recipes like that are just some of the great food and nutrition content available across all of the Outside brands. With Outside+, we also have access to meal plans (this plant-based one has been so helpful on weeks when I need extra guidance), gardening tips (I’ve always wanted to grow my own food!), and some incredible cooking and food-related classes (I’ve got my eye on this Green14 Challenge that promises to teach us how to reduce food waste).
One other thing I love about all these sites: The ability to search based on dietary restrictions. As we start to get back together with family and friends, there’s no better way to say I love you and I’ve missed you than whipping up some tasty food that is respectful of whatever their dietary needs may be. Then we can all get out and explore, happy and full.
