Watch our new HD video production to get ideas of easy meals you can create while living in your vehicle.  I’ve been sleeping in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL, or vandwelling for eight months straight now.  Being out there, and doing IT, teaches you what it takes to plan for a long road trip.  However, maybe this blog post will inspire you to do more car camping.  It’s been an amazing experience, and my pleasure to share with you.  I’m so glad I’ve been able to see more of the Pacific Northwest while I’m young, wild, and free.  Now I just need to find more stickers to paste on my VW Bus.

Many food suggestions shown in the YouTube video are also ideal for backpacking, because they are ready instantly with hot water. Other dishes, or side meals are fully prepared for consumption as is, such as the individually wrapped granola bars.  I also eat plenty of fresh organic fruit, and drink spring or distilled water.  No tap.

Tip:  Use different sizes of Ziploc bags to store food items in, and label each kit with a permanent pen.  You can compact the plastic storage sacks, and take most of the air out of them, so they are almost vacuum sealed, and take up minimal space.  Then put the locked baggies in larger bins, or the pockets of your Everyday Carry backpack for safekeeping.

car camping food listCar camping is one of my favorite blog topics.  I hope you find it interesting too.  Here’s a checklist of my top foods to store in your vehicle.  Many items instantly turn into grub by adding hot water.  I got ideas for the perfect van dwelling foods by watching YouTube videos of Thru Hikers packing for their long distance trips.  Search for Pacific Crest Trail aka PCT, or Appalachian Trail Backpackers online.

Ziplock bags are a trusted way to keep organized.  You can even write on the outside with a permanent pen to label things.  Plus, plastic sacks maintain some protection from water, rats, an other elements.  Let me know if you have any questions about my setup.  Add several gallons of distilled and spring water (not pictured), and I’m ready to go off the grid for weeks.  I’m stocked up on:

  • Honey with ginseng, bee pollen, and royal jelly
  • Drinks: water, aloe water, coconut beverages, teas, fruit juices
  • Soups in cans to heat and serve, and powdered packets
  • Protein Powder, plus various green powders (wheat grass)
  • Pasta Sides, and Dishes like Top Ramen
  • Dehydrated Food such as Mountain House Freeze Dried Meals (Apple Crisp is my favorite)
  • Fruit: Fresh Produce like apples and bananas, also fruit strips, bottles, and cans
  • Nuts and Seeds like Almond and Hemp
  • Granola Bars, and Oatmeal 
  • Instant Coffee, instant milk
  • Condiments: Packets of butter, salsa, pepper, salt, raw sugar, mayonnaise, ketchup, and everything else Free and Holy
  • Canned meats: Flavored tuna, Spam, Chicken Salad with crackers

Survival Bros eats fresh slices of smoked fish on the Oregon Coast.  Bell Buoy is one of our favorite places to dine, and support.  Stop by their store when you’re in Seaside, OR.  They can and smoke on site, right off of Highway 101.  I bet I could eat pounds of this meat easy.  It’s the perfect food for building muscle.  I like to take a bag of salmon jerky hiking, but unless you have a cooler, it has to be consumed within a few hours of purchasing.  Have you tried seafood like this?  Listen to the locals when you’re on vacation.  They know what’s best.  Please subscribe on YouTube for more adventures.  Thanks.

 Like seafood?  I didn’t until I grew up, and got a clue.

So you want to eat like a caveman. Well, before you hunt down that wild boar, let’s take a look at the Paleo Diet, and see if it agrees with you. Nom nom nom.

Where’s my beef, eggs, and chickens? I’m hungry. I will tell you what, even thinking about eating animals is making me salivate. However, I could never be a die hard Paleo devotee. Paleos now eat just seafood, meat, nuts, seeds, eggs, fungi, roots, fruits, and vegetables. They look down on carb-laced grains, legumes, salt, dairy products, refined sugars, and processed oils. Still, most on Paleo are likely recklessly scarfing GMO products, and heavily processed meats. Forget that. I prefer to eat some high-quality meats, and fresh fish like salmon, but mostly raw, living juice. Do you really want dead flesh rotting inside you for days? Gross. And last time I checked, carbs give you energy. I’m not giving up Dave’s Killer bread (Sin Dawg) for fungi. Yeah right.

I’m primarily liquitarian. I drink raw fruit and veggie juice, and add supplements, vitamins, and minerals. Drinking only liquids will help you feel lighter, and healthier. I do a 24 hour juice fast at least once a month, and go for 3-9 days twice a year or so. Try drinking just broth one day for a real challenge and natural cleanse.

If you are looking for a diet to gain muscle, you can do it on Paleo, or even as a vegan. The key is to find what your body likes. Testing yourself for food allergies is smart too. Maybe you’ve been eating wrong all along. These days I like consuming light meals. Meats bog me down. I’d rather drink a meal replacement shake with rice, or hemp protein powder. I also like eating peanuts, and that’s not on the Paleo diet. It’s a bean. OMG! Please… Pass the fluffy pancakes, and chunky peanut butter. Then I’m ready for some real physical activity. And another thing; what’s wrong with Greek yogurt? Nothing. That’s not worse for you than a fatty fast food burger. Get real Paleos. Some dairy is OK. Example #2: goats milk. #3: breast milk.

Sure our ancestors were scavengers, then hunter-gathers, but we are smarter and more advanced now. We have superfoods at our disposal. Research them online, and get to know your health food store. Plus, juice hardcore! Paleo is a fad. Contrary to the cavemen, carbs are not evil. Eat balanced. Eat often. Make your body a science project, and put in what you want to get out. Do work.
