Early Spring Food and Gear Finds

It’s been a busy month for us. We moved a week ago, having bought land in a rural setting, and sold our place in the foothills. Hasn’t been a lot of time to write of late, but I am getting back into the swing of things.

Our new place is still in Washington State, and we are island living. I used to live in the region, and we decided it was time to make the jump back and escape the insanity of King County and the mess of Seattle.

The Green Traveler is a unique system for taking food on the go. It might remind you of an old school Thermos, but inside it has 2 main compartments, and each end is a container for carrying liquids. In total, it has 6 liquid proof sections, with areas for tucking in small items. It can clip onto a backpack or bike easily.

I haven’t had the chance to try out Reiga’s Mixes, but the feedback I have heard is they are a great gluten-free option for using in trail meals. They have 7 mixes for sale currently. These I saw in a Safeway store, with the dry mixes.

Easy Peasie, a blend of dried and powdered vegetables. Carrots, Peas, Sweet Potatoes, Kale, and Spinach. Sprinkle some in your meals, or add in to dry soup mixes, rice dishes and so on, for a boost of vegetables. And yes, also great for sneaking in for picky kids (and adults) who think vegetables are “weird”. It comes in 4 different versions, a green, plus green, reds and blues, so many options.

  1. Wow, looks like you’re in my neck of the woods! I live in Anacortes.

    Thanks for the tip on the Easy Peasie sprinkle. I love packing lightweight, but I also love my veggies. It sounds like a fun supplement for the trail!

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
