I think a lot of people overlook food quality and just focus on quantity. Eating appropriate food for being active goes a long way to keeping you outside, I know this seems obvious but I don't think a lot of people look beyond filling their stomachs.
Perfect advice.

"Healthy food "is very general to learn from, so I will mention the basics,

Whole Grains= no white bread, white flour (donuts, that shit) no hard core corn syrup, or even too much of any sugar. Really simple sugars are the bad ones, and too much of them, actually cool you, which makes your body work hard to keep you warm. It is a fast energy, but it has a cooling effect. (forThose of us in colder climates on the hill ). Brown rice syrup is good, You can make all kinds of amazing things with it. Dark chocolate is good. No dairy is best.

I eat lots of oily foods in the winter. Fish, sesame oil, brown rice, whole grains, beans, , root veggies, (yes french fries rock), I will eat a full meal an hour before I ride usually on the drive up), and pack some dried fruit, or Kind Bar, or something to have as a boost before a sit down lunch, then another cliff bar, or whatever.

I don't know about you guys.. but only during snowboard season do I find myself craving burritos afterwards on a daily basis.. if not chili cheese fries.. or chili in general..

Homemade burritos are where it's at. Nothing like getting together for a wax session and having a burrito night and I make one hell of a burrito FYI.

To legit to quit.
On the move this season.

For breakfast I try and eat some whole grains cereal with a couple fruit, usually bananas and blueberries.

I usually bring this bad boy and tailgate for lunch. We can cook anything with it. It makes you feel soo good after riding really hard for 4 hours to have a nice fish filet, or organic micro brew brats, or nice warm chili. And then you have another 4 hours of hard riding to look forward to with a happy tummy. The walk from the main lift to the parking lot takes 1 minutes so I can get away with it. If that wasn't the case I would bring the micro stove and cook on the hill. Buying food at the resort is way to expensive and the food is shit. As for in between snacks I usually have two granola bars and a camelback to stay hydrated.

We tail gate to, "real" hot dogs or hamburger patties. Otherwise we pack a lunch cooler with tons of food.
For on the lift rides or a quick snack while taking a breather on the hill, we usually pack trail mix or jerkie from our local butcher, awesome stuff
