Vegan Friendly Trail Recipes

As I have mentioned we attended the Vida Vegan Conference this past weekend and I had a number of conversations come up about my recipes for backpacking/hiking meals.I also realized that many of our recipes on the website were not properly tagged either! So I am slowly going through the website and updating – I was shocked how many were not labeled “vegetarian” or “vegan”. Sigh! Well I did say that going had focused me on my work 😉 So…expect a lot more recipes to be tagged today and in the coming days – a good half of the website is Veg/Vegan friendly and you wouldn’t know it. But for now? Here is a sprinkling of tagged recipes to get you started!

  1. I have the worst time eating breakfast while backpacking but that carrot cake in a bowl and the peanut butter granola cups look like something I could eat at 6am!

  2. I have made, eaten, and enjoyed the carrot cake, health bowl, and soft lentil tacos on trips this summer. They’re part of my collection of favorites that I return to over and over. Highly recommended!
