I took my Shelf Reliance food camping...

I just went on a 10-day camping trip. Living History kind of camping. I took a selection of THRIVE foods with me this time.

I made up single serving omelets. Whole Egg powder, FD onions, red and green bell peppers, ham dices. If it was just me eating breakfast, it was add water, wait a minute or so, pop it in the pan and cook like normal. Quick, easy, yummy.

If it was a group eating breakfast, someone cooked a huge skillet of stuff and I didn't have to use my breakfast - and I didn't have to worry about it spoiling.

I contributed veggies to group meals - and everyone liked them.

I had my choice of raspberries, strawberries, blueberries or peach slices in my yogurt and my cereal whenever I wanted, even on the 9th day.

This will become standard camping fare for me (and I camp a lot!) because
  • I can have natural, unadulterated food throughout a 10-day event without refrigeration. Saves cooler space, saves ice money.
  • I can have food I'm proud to share, but if it doesn't get eaten it doesn't spoil.
  • I can pack a whopping amount of it without hurting my back - it's light!
