I know I just posted but I just remembered I had been told to put up something about the food I have been eating and how that has been going. The food has been going fantastically. For dinner I have been eating everything from Chicken and Sausage Jambolaya, to Creamy Pumpkin Pasta, to Caribbean Black Beans and Rice. However, I would have to say that my current favorite dinner is Turkey Spaghetti, both because its tasty and I think it also rehydrates the most effectively (the Jambolaya is a close second though). Lunches usually consist of more snacky type stuff, but it is all very satisfying. I frequently have cheese with rice bran crackers, or Glutino pretzels w/ peanut butter (this is unexpectedly awesome), usually coupled with some dried fruit and some trail mix, or jerky or some such. The dried fruit incidentally is key. Dehydrated pineapple is my treat for the day. It's like eating candy it's so good. Breakfast is usually a simple affair of some gluten-free granola or hudson bay bars (gluten-free oats, peanuts, raisins, and honey) with a bag or some kind of nuts, though occasionally I make some quinoa flakes with Carnation instant breakfast in it. I do actually have these meals, but in truth I don't really stop eating. Whenever I stop I try to munch on some trail mix or part of a bar (I've been using ThinkThin, ThinkGreen, and Raw Revolution, and occasionally a Snickers). You don't really notice in normal life but out here I really do feel like I function better if I stay fueled. I have asked Mom if she will put up some of the recipes for the dinners for anyone who might want them, so hopefully that might be posted soon, but before I go I'm going to leave my personal trail mix combination which I think is rather amazing. Mix togethor one part each of the following ingredients:
Honey roasted peanuts
Dark Chocolate M&M's
not exactly fancy cooking but its damn good gorp. Anyway thats all for a while.
