  • The 'Top Ten Fills to Hit the Hills' - our Food for Fuel Campaign

    We are delighted to launch our new 'Food for Fuel' Campaign - The 'Top Ten Fills to Hit the Hills'!

    Our top ten high-energy dishes are aimed at providing the best possible nutritional values for those seeking a healthy and active lifestyle.  The campaign focuses primarily on walkers visiting the local area and gives a guide on food to eat prior to walking, such as Yoghurt Parfait with Homemade Granola; food to eat whilst on the move, such as Very Veggie Wrap with Homemade Hummus, Shredded Vegetables, Homemade Chutney, Seeds and Dried Fruits; and food for recovery, such as Three Bean Chilli.

    Karen and Rob have developed Greens into one of Grasmere’s most popular establishments and as we all know, already specialise in providing for those with very specific dietary requirements.

    “We are delighted to be launching this new ‘food for fuel’ campaign and hope it will prove to be a helpful guide for those planning an active day out in the Lake District.” says Karen.  “We already specialise in healthy, seasonal comfort food, and are a very popular choice for those who come to the Lakes to walk and climb.  We are frequently asked which particular foods will benefit a day on the fells, so providing a concise list of nutritious high energy food seemed a logical step.  Although aimed primarily at walkers, we believe that everyone, including young people, can learn about the benefits of good nutrition and how food can impact the body’s performance.”
