nutritious and delicious
We’ve just had Team Yealands Family Wine and Team Avaya (formerly Seagate) come in to pick up their meals for the 2018 Adventure Racing World Champs on Reunion Island. Team Yealands are Godzone 2016 and 2018 winners and Team Avaya are 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 World Champions. For both teams having fast rehydrating food that's nutritious and delicious is a key factor in their success.
This year the most popular meals have been Scrambled Eggs, Beef Stroganoff, Chia Pudding and Tom Kha Gai. Our scrambled eggs has always been an adventure racer favourite - as far as energy per grams goes its one of the best in the world. The Beef stroganoff is a new meal and the rich creamy sauce combined with pasta seems to be a winning formula for adventure racers. Both Chia Pudding and Tom Kha Gai are popular with racers for their refreshing flavours - the Blackcurrant Chia pudding is gluten free and vegan and is a great snack or dessert. Our Tom Kha Gai is an all round favourite with its tangy lemongrass and rice noodles. In addition to the meals the teams always take a big stack of Banana Smoothies to keep themselves going.
The Adventure Racing World Championship has been held since 2001. Every year it's held in a different country, often in wild locations far from civilisation. The gruelling event can take the winning team anywhere from 3 to 7 days to complete. When the race starts on the 8th we'll be watching the trackers on http://www.raidinfrance.com/
