Expedition Fuel — Endurance Nutrition from FUEL10K

Correctly fuelling for an endurance expedition is one of the toughest logistical challenges you will face. Unsupported, you need to find lightweight nutritious meals and snacks to keep your body functioning at its best throughout your adventure.

The range of products from UK brand FUEL10K is one of the most innovative, natural, and nutritious collections of endurance nutrition products that I have tried to date; perfect for multi-day kayaking expeditions and bikepacking adventures.

FUEL10K Complete Meal

Leading the charge is the latest release from FUEL10K—'The Complete Meal'. When on endurance expeditions I try my best to eat fresh local produce; but there are times when that is simply not possible—due to the remoteness of your location or the inability to carry a heavy weight or quantity of produce. Freeze-dried meals are one choice, but recently I have been researching and considering the benefits of liquid meal replacements—FUEL10K's Complete Meal has risen to the top as the best that I have tried.

Each serving supplies 26 grams of protein, 8 grams of dietary fibre, and 100 percent of your NRV of vitamins and minerals. There is no added sugar, and the shake can be mixed with water or milk (dairy or alternatives).

A lot of powdered meal-replacement shakes taste (frankly) foul—with a gloopy texture and artificial additives. The FUEL10K Complete Meal is the best tasting meal-replacement shake that I have used, even when just made with water. It has a smooth and natural texture—flavoured with fruit extracts, and composed of natural ingredients such as flaxseed, oat flour, whey, and egg protein.

For convenience or as an emergency meal, the Complete Meal from FUEL10K offers a better tasting and more nutritionally sound choice than many freeze-dried expedition meals.

Portable Nut Power

Another product within the FUEL10K range that is perfect for endurance expeditions is their range of squeeze pouch peanut butters: featuring Super Seeded Peanut Butter, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Smooth Peanut Butter.

Peanut butter is known for its high protein content and energy-boosting calories; perfect for fuelling and recovering on endurance challenges. It has long been one of my go-to fuel sources.

FUEL10K peanut butters are made with peanuts, coconut sugar, and a pinch of sea salt; as well as cocoa powder and chia seeds in those respective flavours. The portable and resealable pouches are the ideal lightweight solution to take with you on the go—a lot easier than a jar and a spoon.

High Protein Breakfasts

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day—and even more so when you are fuelling for a day of physical endurance. FUEL10K offer three easy options to set you up for the challenges that are ahead: Breakfast Drinks, High Protein Granola Pots, and High Protein Porridge Pots.

The Breakfast Drinks are high in protein, a source of fibre, vitamin-boosted, and have no added sugar. The Porridge Pots are made with British oats and milk protein; providing a fantastic compact breakfast, even when made with just boiling water. For those people that are not porridge fans (really?!) there are Granola Pots, which are perfect with yoghurt.

Simple and quick breakfasts like these will ensure that you are fuelled right before heading out into the wilderness.
