Camping for Thanksgiving in Point Reyes

For the first time in years, I'll be away from the comfort of my home on Thanksgiving. This time we'll be celebrating in a tent or on foot, in the cold and wet climate of Point Reyes National Park. I’m really excited – excited to hang out in nature after so long and share with friends a new experience of hiking and camping out in the rain. I'm already thankful for being able to fit into REI’s kid-size waterproof pants (half the cost of adult pants) and that I have some really special Paleo Thanksgiving-y food and treats preparing in the oven and dehydrator (cookies) to take on tomorrow's three day adventure. Here is what I’ll be bringing...

For fat and protein:
Nom Nom Paleo’s Turkish Sliders (I add half ground organic/pastured chicken to my Marin Sun Farms ground meat mix for a more tender chew)
Hard Boiled eggs
Coconut butter      

For snack:
The World’s Best Beef Jerky (Grass Fed Jerky Chews – you probably think that’s a given, but if I actually ate them all the time there would be nothing left for you, and that’s not good)

For startch:
Sweet potatoes (they get soggy fast, so I’ll only pack a few cooked slices to eat cold)
Sliced Jicama (which will serve well as a snack, too)

For treats:
Raw Pumpkin Spice Cookies (substitute raw oat flour for sprouted almond flour - I grind already sprouted nuts in the blender. For when I don't have time to do that I purchase almond flour from Nuts Online

Lots of water (we'll heavily rely on creek water)
Coconut water (for replenishing our bodies with minerals and fluids lost during our endurance hikes) 

Wishing you an appetizing and fun Thanksgiving! I'm thankful to my customers and fans for their loyalty and tremendous support!
