Making Your Own Camping Meals? Because isn’t it sure nice to sit down and eat a nice hot meal after a long hike and setting up camp. I know I enjoy it, but you know what I don’t like? The price for one. Mountain House meals easily fall into the seven dollar per package range. The price of some good meal’s at  restaurants. Which wouldn’t be too bad for a gourmet meal. But is not a gourmet meal, its slop. The food is full if terrible ingredients, fillers, gmo/ roundup sprayed, poor quality food and food that I would prefer not to eat.

I like to try my best to eating a Paleo diet. No grains, dairy or  legumes. Unfortunately those ingredients make up the basis for most freeze-dried camping foods. Along with ingredients I can’t even pronounce.

I would love to have the opportunity to buy an organic paleo freeze-dried meals for camping. Until Paleo Meals to Go there were no options for that. I’m going to go over some options that are available store-bought.I’ll show you  how to make your own high quality paleo  camping meals.  Learn how to start making your own camping  meals at home for much cheaper and eliminate the extra junk you don’t need.

Letherman Wave

Today I’m going to review my Leatherman Wave multi tool. The wave comes with 17 tools built in and 2 screwdriver bits. It weighs in at 8.5 oz. It features all locking blades and tools. A must have on a multi tool. It’s made of stainless steel. A good thing too since mine has gotten wet several times in the field. It comes with a very well built leather sheath. The sheath has to carry option vertical or horizontal. The horizontal mounting is a bit tight though.

 Pemmican

Pemmican is a natural super food. It’s the original energy bar. Pemmican is  dried meat with rendered fat in a 50/50 mixture. Dried berries and honey are also added  depending on the season.The Native Americans created Pemmican. It  was eagerly adopted by the Europeans that came. For those reasons I have been very eager to try some but finding it locally is impossible.

I’ve seen a few places online that have traditional pemmican for sale. The reviews however are mixed. Besides that I’m a DIY guy so I decided to make my own. Once again I ran into an issue. You can’t just go to the grocery store and buy tallow. So I got to thinking about using coconut oil. The list of health benefits is long, it’s a solid up to 76 degrees, has a neutral flavor and the big part is you can find it everywhere and fairly cheap.
