Born in the mountain ranges of British Columbia, Canada, Nomad Nutrition is the culmination of a lifelong pursuit of wild places and good food. Founder Denis Mikhailov, an avid climber, spent years looking for the best food to fuel his body and his adventures. Moving from vegetarianism to raw veganism, he eventually settled on a vegan paleo-style diet, learning about the benefits of each lifestyle along the way. But on trips, with little time to prepare, Denis often ended up eating uninspiring pre-packaged camp meals that didn’t do much for his energy levels or his digestive system (we know you’ve been there). Then an event made Denis realize that things could be different. Deep in the Bugaboos, a chance encounter with a mountain guide and his homemade dehydrated food woke Denis up. He realized that it is possible to make trip food that tastes good and feels good. Thus, Denis brings life to Nomad Nutrition’s flagship trio of healthy, delicious and energy-packed meals. And this is just the beginning. We hope you’ll make Nomad Nutrition part of your next adventure!
Nomad Nutrition promotes a healthy, organic lifestyle with adventure meals geared towards backpackers, hikers, climbers, paddlers, hunters, and anyone on the go or venturing on overnight excursions. We strive to provide you with the highest quality ingredients and optimized nutrition to feed your adventure. Integrity is at the core of what we do. We’re not a big company, making money by telling people what they want to hear. We’re wild souls and adventurers, like you, and we believe that there are some things -- a lot of things, actually -- that are more important than money.
We are committed to serving you best in class plant-based food.
We have entered a new era of wilderness pursuits. As fast and light becomes the golden standard, and technical gear carries more people deeper into the backcountry, we are given more opportunities and more challenges. We grapple with what it means to respect wild places -- to experience them or leave them alone -- while celebrating the mountaineers, skiers or ultra runners, or even those who live at the outer borders of will, endurance and human achievement. We worry about the human and environmental costs of our activities and our gear. At the same time, we chart out the warmth-to-weight ratio of the sleeping bag we’re thinking of buying for our next expedition. In the midst of these overlapping ideals, Nomad Nutrition sees enormous possibility:
We see a landscape where a passion for wild pursuits spurs environmental activism, and is supported by an understanding of what humans need to feel and perform at their best. That means a deeper understanding of ourselves and our environment. It also means better food.
Our mission is to feed avid adventurers and their pursuits with locally crafted, wholesome and sustainable meals; to share our passion for clean, non-GMO sports nutrition; and to support local food producers whenever we can. In short, we set a new standard for adventure meals.
