A Weekend Full of Music

We’re heading north this weekend for the Red Ants Pants Music Festival and while it is getting easier and easier to find gluten-free food out into the world, when I travel I like to be prepared. I’ve gotten stuck, hungry and cranky, with gas station string cheese and potato chips my only options often enough to know to pack a little emergency kit of goodies.

Whether you’re gluten intolerant or not, I thought I’d share my favorite camping and traveling snacks:

* THESE cookies are a MUST — they’re healthy enough to work as breakfast in a pinch and satisfying for an afternoon treat. And very adaptable : last night I got stuck without oats, so I used flax seed meal, sorghum flour and millet flour instead (in a 1:1:1 ratio) and added a dollop of almond butter. They came out delicious.

* I’m a huge fan of beef jerky when traveling and we have the last bit of homemade venison jerky left in the freezer, so that will be coming along.

* I often forget about hard-boiled eggs when I’m home, but ALWAYS remember them when camping. Make ahead-able, packable, full of energy…perfect.

* Carrots and hummus. It seems like most of the GF energy bars out there are super sweet and when my energy is low, sweets are the last thing I want to eat. Like hard-boiled eggs, hummus is something I rarely eat at home, but LOVE on the road.

So. I’m off to the store to stock up on a few last minute goodies and then off we go.

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

  1. This might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but I am going to a local Farmer’s Market in the morning where a package of fat is awaiting me at the Pork Farm stand. I’m going to make fresh lard! I have just discovered that fresh lard, in moderation, is a healthier fat than butter. The lard will be used sparingly in tortillas, pie crust and who knows what else?
