So here in MN it doesn't look like or feel like spring yet but it will come. So I am thinking ahead a bit. I need some good idea's for taking the kids on a picnic (we are all eating THM) that will do well in a bag. Also looking for some good camping idea's. We have a travel trailer so I could do just about anything but I would like some idea's that I could mainly put together at home and just have to heat while camping so momma doesn't spend all camping cooking. Or just some fast throw it together idea's. ThanksMisty
Chili is a wonderful camping meal, and easy to make ahead and reheat. If you want a biscuit or anything with it, I love the Country Biscuits with cheddar and jalapeño in the Muffins and Breads chapter. Those will need to be reheated too. My family usually takes along a bunch of Hebrew National hot dogs also. They're not full of junk like other hot dogs. They're great over a fire or heated up on the stove, and they're quick and easy. You can serve them with mayo, mustard, unsweetened pickle relish, etc. You could even pair it with some leftover chili. Eat them bunless, or make a low carb bread to serve them with. A great side dish is a cauliflower 'potato' salad. I don't remember if there's a recipe for that in the book or not. But it's easy to make ahead. Celery with peanut butter is a quick and tasty side or snack. Greek yogurt and berries are also easy and quick. And don't forget about sandwiches/wraps. Make some low carb bread if you like, or use Joseph's pitas. Deli meats, veggies, cheese, or PB, egg salad, tuna salad, etc.
Some of these things will work for picnics, too. Like the sandwiches, celery and peanut butter, and even the yogurt/cottage cheese with berries. The frozen berries keep the yogurt cold, but are perfectly thawed later so you can eat them without freezing your teeth.
steffanie3: For breads you want to stick with the E guidelines of whole grain sourdoughed or sprouted or whole grain rye.

asensenig: Does this include Ezekiel Bread? I have a THM recipe that calls for 7 cups wheat kernels. It does not mention that it needs to be sprouted or rye.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Following is the recipe I used for Ezekiel Bread. 7 cups Wheat Kernels; 1 cup Ezekiel Mix; 1000 mg Vitamin C Tablet; 5 cups warm water; 1/2 cup Honey; 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened); 2 T salt; 3 T Saf Yeast; 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten. Ezekiel mix next

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?
Apr 16, 2014 11:56:59 GMT -5
steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?
Apr 16, 2014 13:55:11 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.
Apr 16, 2014 16:01:42 GMT -5
steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
