Appalachian Trail Adventures has collaborated with the the Foundry Restaurant and Registered Dietitians, Rosa Donohue MS, RD, CND and Jill Corey MS, RD, who both have a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition. They have created our delicious menu and work daily when needed with our chefs. Our meals are a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats. We also offer special diets, such as vegetarian, vegan, wheat and dairy-free options. Additionally, all meals will be well-balanced with some type of protein and a complex carbohydrate. Studies have shown that protein slows the rate of which the sugar (carbohydrate) breaks down. Therefore, you will have sustainable energy that will last far longer than the carbohydrate on its own.
