So, I don't really know what to call this way of eating I have embarked upon. Some might call it GAPS, it's certainly not Paleo, but it's not unlike Paleo. Given the popularity of Paleo, you would think that a Google search for Paleo hiking foods would bring up all kinds of great suggestions. Well, maybe you wouldn't, I but I sure as shit did.

Here is what I packed: Soaked almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds and squash seeds. Organic coconut shreds and organic, soy free, vegan chocolate chips. A jar of peanut butter, dried figs, and coconut water. I hope these things do the trick as I watch my hubby drink Gatorade and eat snickers and granola bars, because I'm sure he would share and I'M BEING REALLY GOOD, so I don't want to fall off the wagon.
The plan is to start at 4:00 am. I'm afraid we might not finish until 8:00 pm. Gah.
