What I Learned from the #BasicBowl Nutrition Challenge

My friend Shanique hosted the #BasicBowlNutrition Challenge that ended yesterday, and it was truly transformative!

Are you a hiking newbie? I have some tips for first-time hikers that you can read here, and here are some additional tips from the American Hiking Society
