We’ve all heard it said: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While many of us agree that breakfast is the most delicious meal of the day (pancakes and bacon for dinner, anyone?) we might not know the health and wellness benefits from eating a hearty morning meal. Breakfast in the States is unique and varied, from rich hollandaise-dripping eggs, Super Food smoothies, bacon-wrapped everything, and classics like biscuits and gravy (fresh or freeze dried!).  Americans tend to have strong opinions on breakfast, either “Nah, I’m more of a lunch person,” or “Heck yeah! Feed me, Seymour!” In cities … Continue reading

5 Essential Pieces of Gear for Off-Roading

Guest Contributor: Brooke Jackson Regardless of what activity gets you outside and adventuring, preparedness is essential. As a first time off-road experience, the Rebelle Rally taught me a lesson (or two, or three) about how to be self-sufficient when driving in the world of off-roading. Through these realizations, not only did I leave the event feeling capable of getting myself out of just about any situation my little Jeep could get into, I also gained a new perspective for just how far I can go if I have the right gear in my rig. With that said, there were a … Continue reading

Prepping for Home, Work, and Auto

The unexpected can come a-knockin’ at any time: a bad storm, a grid breakdown, a flood- or fire- or other weather-triggered evacuation. Yet many of us are a bit blasé when it comes to prepping ourselves for such derailing emergencies, even as we take the responsible steps to pack backup and safety supplies on our hiking and camping trips. Or maybe you’re on top of disaster preparedness when it comes to your domestic space, but you haven’t really considered the possibility that the SHTF situation might occur when you’re away from home, at work or on your commute.

National Trail Mix Day

The last day of August celebrates one of the unassuming but absolutely staple backpacker snacks. The 31st is (drumroll, please)….National Trail Mix Day, so consider marking the occasion with a hike and a handful! Here at Mountain House we’re big fans of trail mix, which happens to make the perfect supporting act to our beloved freeze-dried meals.

Whether you buy it premade or assemble it yourself, trail mix checks off the right … Continue reading

Small Kitchen, Big Appetite

Sometimes our appetites are bigger than our cooking space. Have you ever tried prepping Thanksgiving dinner in an RV? It’s a small nightmare. But what’s a family to do if they’re living on the road over the holidays? Or what do you do if you’re hangry after a day of hunting, mountaineering, or crushing books for finals? Just because your food prep is limited by space, doesn’t mean your meals need to be limited in creativity and flavor. With a few staples on stand-by, and by planning ahead, you can kiss that cup ‘o’ noodle farewell, and say hello to … Continue reading
