I love food. Like really really love it. So when I travel, it is important that I think ahead about it. The last thing I want is to be "grocery shopping" at the only gas station for miles around.
For the mornings, I really like oatmeal. I never get tired of it, and it’s light and quick to cook.
Here is my recipe for the perfect camp oats:
Quick oats- about 1 cup per person per day
Add about a tsp of Maca powder per serving, a table spoon each of hemp seeds and chia seeds per serving, about 1/8 of a cup of pecans per serving and 1/8 of a cup of dried mulberries.
Boil an equal amount of water to oats you want to cook, pour the boiling water over the dried oats and let sit covered for a minute or two depending on how hungry you are!
Hemp seeds are considered one of natures perfect foods and pack a ton of protein and essential fatty acids to help reduce inflammation — super important when you are working that body hard!
Chia seeds have a great mix of protein, carbs, fat and fiber. Plus they look like frogs legs when you soak them! A nutritional powerhouse that’s a welcome addition to almost anything I eat.
Maca is used for increasing energy and stamina but is not well studied and you should be a bit careful with consuming large amounts. I like its caramel flavor.
Mulberries contain IRON, yeah that’s right, iron in a berry. That’s pretty amazing right? So along with the vitamins and phyto nutrients it contains, that puts it right up there on my list of power house foods. I dehydrate them while they are in season but you can also buy them dried online.
