Canoe Tripping Paleo Style

Going away on vacation can be trying when you are on a paleo framework at the best of times, especially if you are travelling abroad and have to navigate foreign food customs… Sometimes it’s easy, for example in Argentina, where they eat a lot of meat, or difficult in places where language is a barrier.

Now try going on a vacation/trip where you have to bring all of your own food that has to last for several days, stays fresh with minimal refrigeration, doesn’t weigh you down and still falls within the realm of Paleo… Well that’s just what I did this past extended weekend. My friend and I went on a 4 day/ 3 night canoe trip into the interior of Algonquin Provincial Park; 4 portages and 5 lakes carrying all our own gear and food.

Here is the menu we used:

Day 1

  • Dinner: Fire grilled T-bone steak with fried onions, sundried tomatoes, celery and carrots in bacon fat and Omgheespot clarified butter

Day 2

  • Breakfast: 1/3 lbs Bacon, 4 eggs and leftover veggies from dinner
  • Lunch: Beef Jerky, Banana and Sundried Tomatoes
  • Dinner: Leftover Steak and Coal Baked Sweet Potato
  • Dessert: Coal Roasted Banana and Dark Chocolate

Day 3

  • Breakfast: 1/3 lbs Bacon, 4 eggs and leftover Sweet Potato from dinner
  • Lunch: Beef Jerky, Salami, Sundried Tomatoes, Avocado
  • Dinner: Tuna Risotto
  • Dessert: Coal Roasted Banana and Dark Chocolate

Day 4

  • Breakfast: 1/3 lbs Bacon, Corned beef, 4 eggs and whatever veggies we had left

Snacks: Bananas, beef jerky, Gluten free crackers, Paleo Granola
