Check Out Gary Roberts’ High Performance Shopping List!
Fuel your fitness this Summer and beyond with Gary Roberts’ High Performance Grocery Shopping List – right here at Nature’s Emporium!
June is Men’s Health Month here at Nature’s Emporium, and we know from experience the essential role that physical fitness and the nutrition that fuels it plays in any wellness program.
That’s why we reached out to regular Nature’s Emporium shopper and good friend Gary Roberts to help us put together a High Performance Shopping List filled with performance boosting essentials for those looking to kick-start (or maintain) an active lifestyle this Summer.
When it comes to fitness and nutrition, few can speak with the same authority as Gary. He’s a 23-year NHL veteran, Stanley Cup winner, and a leader in high performance training and nutrition through his renowned Gary Roberts High Performance Training program. He works with top tier athletes, like Steve Stamkos and James Neal, as well as local teams and individuals looking to achieve peak performance and longevity in sport and life.
His own remarkable journey acted as the launchpad for remarkable success in such a competitive field.
“My inspiration to start Gary Roberts High Performance Training has grown out of my own journey to regenerate myself after I suffered a serious neck injury that forced me to retire from the NHL in 1996. After two neck surgeries and a year of dedicated rehabilitation focusing on state-of-the-art training, regeneration and nutrition therapy, I was able to return to the game. Now my passion is educating young players, helping them avoid some of the obstacles I faced in my career, and ultimately giving them the best chance at longevity in the sport”

It is interesting to note that no meats are mentioned herein (eggs and fish only). Also contrary to some other comments I have come across, you advocate brown rice (supposedly high arsenic levels) and cashews (also disputed by Dr. Steven Gundry – author of the Plant Paradox). Care to comment thereon?
Thanks for commenting, Sylvia.
Unfortunately, Gary will not be able to comment on this post. However, we’d like to note that he did include Chicken. Regarding the rice: this is definitely a valid concern. Some producers – Lundberg, for instance – address this issue head on by publishing measured levels of arsenic, for consumer awareness. We recommend balanced consumption amongst a variety of complex carbohydrate options (as Gary has). Lastly, cashews offer an excellent source of mono-unsaturated fats and “good” calories, which are vital for athletes. They’re also extremely palatable and accepted in many cases where possible alternatives are not. These are some, though not all, of the foods that Gary has seen tremendous success with amongst his athletes over the years, though it’s always important to acknowledge the value of eating a given food in moderation, and as a component of a diverse diet.
Thanks again, Sylvia!
