Welcome our new columnist Shannon

To help out with my hectic demand of the five day a week pace I’ve brought on a great friend of mine. Welcome Shannon to Survival Punk. I’ve known Shannon for almost ten years now. She is an experienced gardener and crafter. She is right in-line with the DIY and money saving nature here.
I think she will bring a much needed softer side to Survival Punk. I look forward to Shannon’s how to articles and how to garden better.

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.
