As an athlete and a nutritional therapist I like to look after myself and stay as healthy as possible, can make lots of energy and get the performance I want when cycling. As many of you will know I am passionate about the health of the planet and I believe that our own health as well as the health of the planet go hand in hand. When I came across regenerative agriculture I set out to understand how it can contribute to helping combat climate change, what the main principles are and how as an athlete it can help provide performance nutrition.
There are probably more options than you would first think when it comes to making personal choices that have a positive impact on climate change. We have been conditioned to believe that when we adapt our lifestyles to help combat global warming, we will feel more limited, it might be less attractive and not as adventurous. We will no longer be able to idolise a jet set lifestyle that has previously been seen by many to be the ultimate dream. I want to give you more ideas about personal change that you can make which might not just help tackle climate change, especially if we all push for societal and cultural too, but options that you might just find it gives you more pleasure from taking the slow and sustainable approach to outdoor sports and it might even change your mindset to life itself!
