“My mountaineer friends told me that I needed protein, protein, protein for fuel and recovery. And so, I began to start my day with pistachios. Now, I look at them as my daily vitamin. A handful of pistachios provides the protein and nutrition I need before a big ride, and they are the first thing I put in my system after riding.”
