What to eat 12/18/16

 Starting to think about what kind of food I want to bring with me. Lucky for me my friend has a dehydrator so we are going to dehydrate a few things and make some meals all I will have to do is add water. This will help a ton with saving money on food and eating better... getting closer to be back on the road. Getting excited about what's to come!

We got out the dehydrator preparing food for my travels. This morning my friend made up some Strawberry Leather we are dehydrating as I type. She puréed frozen strawberries, a bit of honey and a little lemon juice.  Spread it on the plate that goes in the dehydrator and by tonight it should be done. The house smells like strawberries. YUM!!

This is a 5 Pound Bag of Frozen vegetables dehydrated. To rehydrate it is 1 to 2 ratio. 1 vegetable to 2 water. Let it soak for around 15 minutes.

I found this thermal Bento Box that comes with 4 bowels. 2 stay hot or cold for up to 6 hours and 2 are room temperature. I wanted to see if I put boiling water and what I wanted to eat inside the hot bowels if it would hydrate and cook the food. I am looking for something I could prepare quick and easy in the morning and eat for lunch. I tested out the dehydrated mixed vegetables we did the other day and the dried ravioli we found at Big Lots. It worked perfectly! I just left it alone but did check on it after 2 hours and it was ready to eat but I left it for 5 hours and it was hot and ready to eat. All I have to do is boil water in the morning and forget about it... my kind of meal.

We pretty much finished up the food I will be taking with me... at least 6 weeks of food in 2 reusable shopping bags. Can't beat that! Dried fruits and veggies, grains and lentils are a lot of it. We separated them into serving sizes so all I have to do is boil water, put the food and boiling water in the Bento Box and there is a meal. Also snacks of fruit leather, sweet potato chips, carrot chips, and apple chips. Will be a great start to my winter in the desert. Can't wait!!
