Well the ole man's gone Raw!! well for 10 days that is. Not an easy feat when you work week on/week off. One week at home with me who loves making raw anything and a kitchen that's bursting with the most amazing fresh tropical fruits and the next in the middle of the desert with die hard guys that live on meat and potatoes followed by pudding and custard in a mess that caters for such!
I made up lot of little raw treats and flatbreads for him in my dehydrator so that he had portable food that would last the week and the journey but his bag isn't that big so he was a bit limited as to how much he could take with him.
One of the things I made him was this muesli. It's portable, doesn't need refrigeration and a complete meal as I added Protein Powder to it as well as lot of activated nuts and seeds and lots of dried fruit. So as you can see a healthy mix of Protein, Fats and Carbs! I ground some of the nut and seeds so that if the only thing he has to mix with it is water then it will create a bit of a nut milk. I tried it with water before he left and I thought it tasted great. But then, I am easy pleased and my palette is very easy to please when it come to raw food.
