Refreshing Citrus Aloe Spritzer

Refreshing Citrus Aloe Spritzer

Our daughter Pailey loves making "fancy" drinks, and so we do lots of experiments. This last week it was pretty warm for the PNW, so it was perfect for making a spritzer. These drinks are wonderful with a sparkling water and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family!  We also love adding herbs we grow, and even plants like Aloe that we have growing in our kitchen. Aloe is an amazing healing food, so make sure to learn more about it here! 

Wild Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Dandelion Root and Nettles

Wild Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Dandelion Root and Nettles

OK, I know this dish sounds a little "crunchy", and I'll admit is quite earthy, but cooking with wild foods is so fun!  Besides what is amazing about Nettles and Dandelion, Sweet Potatoes are one of the best complex carbohydrate foods to bring sweetness and satisfaction in a meal.  Besides harvesting your nettles and dandelion roots, this meal is easy to throw in the oven and combine with a protein such as the Elk and Nettle Meatloaf Muffins.

Ryan's Backcountry Mountain Mush

Ryan's Backcountry Mountain Mush

Breakfast is an essential part of starting any day, but especially a backcountry hunting or travel trip.  Ryan's favorite food is an oatmeal concoction that he's labeled Mountain Mush.  It's full of healthy carbs, fats, and protein, and has calories to fuel any long day of hiking.
