On the menu our first night: We had been munching for most of the hike on trail mix and protein bars and lots of water. When we finally got to sit down, I was too tired to cook anything so thankfully I brought along with easy snack foods that quickly filled us up.
Dinner (from the top going clockwise): Homemade vegan bean dip (high protein), cheddar rice crackers (for Mike), gluten-free herb crackers (for me), carob chocolate pieces (for smores), graham crackers, ginger snap cookies, and Spicy Hummus dip.
Breakfast: The next day we woke up to a very foggy, very cold and very damp morning. We decided that if the rain didn't let up we were going to pack everything up again and start hiking back. The plan was to hike halfway to another site and stay there a night but that plan quickly changed.
Either way, we had to start our day with some healthy and hearty carbs to help us recover, heal and prepare for the day ahead. We have: Bob Red Mill's Organic Hot Cereal, topped with dried cranberry, blueberry and almond slivers (I also added some fresh strawberry slices after this picture was taken).
Lunch: About halfway through our hike we stopped for a lunch break, cooking up some more fuel for the second half of the trip. We have: Rice noodles with broccoli and carrots, cooked in a tahini sauce, premade at home and reheated during our stop.
