Know the rules for a powder day — no friends, no pee breaks, and no lunch break. Even if you’re A-OK with spending $20 in the lodge, sometimes, the conditions are just too great for a break. That’s where else these foods come in handy.
When I first started the Paleo diet, I thought I would never be able to find food that actually comes in a package that I could fit in my pocket. Since paleo food is mostly vegetables and meat, or “real food”, I thought it usually it couldn’t possibly come in packages. However, my mind was blown when I came across Mammoth bar. Since, discovering that, I have found many other foods that can fit in my pocket for my many days on the slopes
NOTE I have not been paid or promoted to include these items and brands. I discovered them myself and just want to spread the good news for other paleo-ers with an active lifestyle
1. Yes, there are paleo "clif bar" alternatives
Since coming across Mammoth bars a few years ago, my on-the-hill lunches have never been the same. Since then, I have discovered many other paleo protein bar companies. Most of these are pretty filling and full of healthy fats, enough carb and protein, and calorie-dense, making the perfect pocket food!
Others I recommend are:
Go Raw bars
2. Meat Jerky bars
3. dried fruit
I don't eat dried fruit very often because of the high sugar content, but when you're out and about in the cold adventuring, some natural sugar is what you want for energy. Figs are my favorite kind of dried fruit!
4. Grass fed cheese
Probably a cheaper protein alternative to those bars I mentioned above, but still healthy! Grass fed is important in any dairy product.
5. stuff I've baked
I love baking all sorts of paleo goods at home, so I usually have some stashed away in the fridge. Here is my go-to shortbread cookie recipe with 4 ingredients.
And that's my list of paleo stuff I bring on the hill on almost a daily basis! Gone are the days of taking an hour lunch break and stashing my cooler in the lodge, hoping it won't get stolen.
What foods will you bring on your next adventure?
