FOR EVERY ADVENTURE.
It's so easy too.
Fireside Provisions has a VERY easy to use website. You just pick what adventure your doing
then select your snacks and or meals into your cart and finish up by paying. I had my meals within three days. So you do need to plan a little bit ahead but not much.
I am going to explain each adventure (what you get and how much it costs)
and talk about all the different snacks and meals you can get.
So I don't forget to mention ALL meals are packaged in Sustainable Packaging.
If your going out for the DAY. You always need to have snacks and good ones that are packed full of energy. Fireside Provisions has designed 12 hearty snacks (Trail Provisions) to choose from. For DAY HIKER you choose two snack, $7 for one person with a 2 person minimum. So a total of at least $14.... The snacks they give you are large portions of whatever you choose. I had the Sweet & Spicy Nut Mix and Hearty Cheese & Sausage. Both plenty of snack food for 2 people. They will come packaged with everything you need for that meal.
If condiments are required they will be included.
The twelve different snacks to choose from are:
Sweet & Spicy Nut Mix * Raw Cacao Energy Chunks
Scottish Street Blend Almonds
Gorp Energy Chunks Smoked Almonds
Curry Cashew Mix Hearty Cheese & Sausage *
Whole Wheat Fig Bars Hummus & Fire Roasted Red Peppers
Seventh Heaven Trail Mix Honey Peanut Butter & Apples
We didn't even eat half the bag. Trust me when I say, you get plenty of snacks for 2 people. We still have left-overs and if the monsoon rains stay away, this weekend it will be used up.
Remember to bring a knife. We always carry a pocket knife in one of our water pouch backpacks, but if you don't you will need something to cut the sausage with.
This to me is a MUST HAVE for any DAY, OVERNIGHT, WEEKENDER or BACKPACKING adventure.
So filling, but not too much filling that you don't want to hike anymore.
The Summer sausage was so tasty. The cheddar cheese had a perfect smokey taste and the mustard had a little kick of spice to it.
For those over night camping trips Fireside Provisions offers the Overnighter. It includes Breakfast, 2 Snacks (Trail Provisions) & Dinner. $15 per person with the same 2 person minimum. Again I felt this was enough food for 4 people, but I guess it's better to have more then less.
The choices again come with all the necessary condiments.
In this description I am only going to talk about the Breakfast items. I will include the Dinner on the next one.
You have 8 Breakfast items to choose from all excellent choices.
Since we haven't had a chance to camp, due to our dogs and the Monsoon storms we seem to get every weekend. I choose to make my Fireside Provisions at home for breakfast last Saturday.
One of the best breakfast's iv'e had in a while and let me remind you (just in case you forgot) I love cooking and make big meals for my boyfriend and I for each and every meal we eat. I have made some yummy breakfast's in the past, but this has by far been one of my favorite. So next time I do plan a Overnighter trip I will be including this in my stay.
Your choices for Breakfast are:
Aunt Apples Granola with Milk Cranberry Couscous Crunch
Lowfat Berry Granola with Milk Fireside Cranberry Scones with Natural Jam
Pumpkin Flax Granola with Milk *Summer Sausage Hash
Power Oatmeal Popop's Pancakes with Real Maple Syrup
I choose the Summer Sausage Hash. Like I said above it was DELICIOUS, I have never had summer sausage heated. I always ate it with cheese and crackers, warming it up, makes it amazing. Simple and Easy... You just add the included potatoes - purple & red, onions, garlic, salt, pepper and you have one heck of a breakfast, now picture this same breakfast out camping, all the people around you will be begging for some when they smell the wonderful food cooking from your camp. I added 2 sunny side up eggs to mine, they don't come with.
This with EVERYTHING but the eggs and trust me it's enough food without eggs, I just added them cuz I wanted too and you can too. All you have to do is chop the onion, potatoes, garlic and sausage. So again make sure you have a knife. But the salt, pepper, olive oil is all included. Don't forget a pan too, lol but if you camp allot i'm sure you have all that stuff already together maybe in a plastic tub.
Your choices for Dinner are:
Maple Mustard Pork Chops & Spicy Chili Baked Yams * Cashew Ginger Rice Bowl w/w out Chicken
Campfire Pizza Sun-dried Tomato Pesto Pasta
Jambalaya Citrus Chicken & Creamy Polenta
I tried the Cashew Ginger Rice Bowl with Chicken. I totally forgot to take my phone when we cooked it one afternoon on a very late night kayaking/hiking trip. But let me tell you, it was EXCELLENT. Very gingery ( i love ginger) lots of shiitake mushrooms and tender chicken. The amount of cashews you receive is crazy. We love cashews and were so excited about how many we got to add to this meal. This meal was very easy to prepare. Just pretty much add all the included ingredients and cook...YUMMY! This would be excellent even at home.
This would be GREAT for your next backpacking trip and so easy since the weight is all figured out for you. The biggest problem I can see with backpacking and choosing your own food is the weight issue. You don't want to over pack and have a extremely heavy pack. We have never done an over night backpacking trip, but have done day backpacking. We are always very careful about how much we put in our packs. Once we over-packed and had issues halfway into the day with our backs hurting, never did that again.
The meals you can choose from are:
Breakfast: Power Oatmeal, Cranberry Couscous Crunch, Fireside Cranberry Scones with Natural Jams, Aunt Maple's Granola with milk, Lowfat Berry Granola, Pumpkin Flax Granola with milk
Snacks/Trail Provisions: Whole Wheat Fig Bars, Raw Cacao Energy Chunks, Sweet & Spicy Nut Mix, Scoot Street Blend, Gorp Energy Chunks, Almonds, Curry Cashew Mix, Smoked Almonds, Seventh Heaven Trail Mix, Hearty Cheese & Sausage, Hummus Fire Roasted Red Peppers, Honey PB & Apples
Dinner: Cashew Ginger Rice Bowl, Campfire Pizza, Sun-dried Tomato Pesto Pasta
