Welcoming in 2011….wow. Is it 2011 already? Do I want to admit that this coming summer will be my 20th high school reunion? Eek! I think hiking is better to think about than that…..hah! I can say one thing though….every year I get requests from our great readers asking about healthier options for trail meals. Maybe it is the sun coming back and the days getting longer but suddenly the “Mashed Taters Smothered In Meat/Cheese” falls to the side for say a tasty wrap full of chicken and fresh vegetables or a filling but light feeling vegetarian dish!
This months issue of Washington Trails is featuring 3 new recipes by us with that theme in our Trail Eats column:
The recipes are ‘Carrot Cake in a Bowl‘, ‘Lentil Soft Tacos‘ and ‘One Pot Chickpea Pasta‘ on page 36. If you are not a subscriber yet please consider it for yourself or loved ones – WTA (Washington Trails Association) is a fantastic non-profit dedicated to the outdoors!
