Trail Food Challenge- Breakfast Polenta

April 20, 2010
by Andy Bowman

A few months ago I challenged myself to start trying to create, copy, or use recipes to make my own trail meals. There are plenty of websites and cook books dedicated to this hobby, but I wanted to see just what happens when someone like me tries to make their own food. Anyone can read a cookbook, but how many of us can really use it or its ideas to create palatable and easy to make trail food? Well, my first recipe is up and while I like it, it may not be the thing for you, but you can always give it a try. Breakfast Polenta ala Andy my first creation and I hope you enjoy.

What do you look for in a snack bar?   I’ll be reviewing some different bars and reporting back on my experiences.  The first part is on the new Fruition bars from PROBAR.    Please join me in the forum to talk about your food use while having fun outdoors.

Honey Stinger Protein Bar and Organic Energy Chews

by: Dave D’Abate

Honey Stinger recently sent me a bunch of their new, smaller 10g Protein bars and their Organic Energy Chews. The new 10g size of their popular 20g bar is ideal as a delicious meal-replacement snack while enjoying any activity and most people will agree that for some unknown reason, smaller sized bars taste better than their larger counterparts. While everyone has their own preference of taste, I’ve had my share of energy and protein bars over the years and I can easily say these Honey Stinger flavor offerings are the tastiest I’ve ever had.

Drip, Drip, Dripping Away with the GSI Java Drip

waiting When the Java Drip first arrived I was a bit put off by its size. I did not think it was something I would carry in my pack, but over the last few months I have really grown attached to this item.

I have gone from worrying about its weight to figuring out ways to make sure I got it in my day pack or lumbar pack.  As the weather grew colder here in Texas, my desire to have hot drinks when outside has increased several fold.
