Healthy Backpacking Food

This is a pretty cool photo essay posted over at thekitchenrag showing some options for backpacking food that doesn't require cooking utensils, but also keeps you healthy during your trip. Best of all, it's all food that would be good just to eat at home as well! Check out some of the foods featured. 1) Bagel, lightly toasted (you can still add butter!) 2) Peanut Butter and Honey sandwich, with flax seeds to get some fiber. 3) Avocado with sea salt and brewer's yeast. 4) Trail mix (this one is sprouted almonds, raw cashews, dried figs, dates, pumpkin seeds, coconut shavings, and a little salt) 5) Ham and swiss rolls (note: only keep if the temperatures aren't getting too hot) 6) Tuna salad with rehydrated tomatoes, raw Parmesan and a little mustard. Try this out next time you go hiking, or, you want a healthy, easy, snack.

Look at that cheesy, saucy goodness. That is a crazy calzone, and someone made it on the trail! Here's the ingredients you'd need to bring: Dough: 1 tsp. dry yeast 1/2 cup lukewarm water 1/2 tsp. sugar 1/4 tsp. salt 1 cup flour Sauce: 1 Tbs. dried onion 1 Tbs. dried green and red peppers 1 1/2 cups water (approximate) 4-6 Tbs. tomato base 2Tbs. powdered milk (optional) 1/2 tsp. oregano and/or basil 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. garlic Toppings: He used dehydrated broccoli and monterey jack cheese but you can kind of use whatever you want! 1. Gather enough kindling to last for at least 20 minutes. 2. Make the dough: Dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar and salt. Add flour and mix to make a stiff dough. heavily oil a fry pan, and spread dough in pan with oiled fingers to form crust. Try to keep the edges on top oil-free and turn up those edges a bit to hold the sauce. 3. Put the cheese, then sauce, then toppings in it. Try to avoid the edges. 4. Using the same dough as above, but don't oil it, put it on top and then try to seal the edges together as best you can. 5. Cover in cheese and red pepper flakes. 6. Cover and bake on stove on low heat with a twig fire on top of the lid until crust is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Shift the pan every once and a while. 7. Cut and enjoy! Who wants to try it?

3 Fun Outdoor Hairstyle Ideas
It's never too early to prepare for Fall. My friends and I just started thinking about outdoor activities during Fall and here I am looking through hairstyles for hiking. I'm that excited. Also, I want to share my curated list to everyone because I thought some of you might be interested in changing up your hairstyles for your fall classes or activities such as biking, rock climbing or yoga. Medium to Long Hair: Easy Pulled Back Ponytail If you're hitting the hills or biking this one is perfect. Your hair will look good for hiking photos and it's not to shabby for a post-hike meal at a diner. This is also a no-fuss helmet hairstyle. Buns are too snug. Styling Instruction: 1. Pull the crown of the hair into a ponytail. 2. Then flip hair through the ponytail. 3. Repeat until the hair at the nape is also pulled back. Tip: The ponytail should be stack on top of the previous tail. Curly Hair: Braidout Ponytail I know how annoying it is to have hair brushing on your face. Even though my hair is not voluminous I get pretty irritated by the piecey strands bugging my forehead. This is why i can't do bangs because I'll end up clipping them up most of the time. If you have the same problem, try this cute hairstyle by AlleySinai. She braids the front and bring it back into a half ponytail. You can also pull it back into a ponytail if you want to keep the hair off your shoulder. Short Hair: Fringe Braid Ponytail Same concept with the braidout ponytail except you're only braiding one part of the bang. Then tie the rest of the hair back in a ponytail. This one doesn't have to be perfect There you have it.
