Paleo Hiking Food Planner and Recipes
A short three weeks into my paleo lifestyle transition I was faced with a 3-day hike and no idea how in the world to stay paleo (or as close as possible) on the trail. 

Hiking food is traditionally freeze dried or dehydrated, and extremely heavy on many no-no's of paleo (and gluten free) such as rice, legumes, potatoes, pastas, and other grains. These carbs were where I was used to "getting my energy" from for the trail. I was scared and worried about how I would have the energy to hike without this type of food. Imagine my excitement when I realized, only one day into my hike on the new way of eating, that I had more energy, no digestive issues, and slept like a baby at night!

Check here often as I will be updating regularly with new tried-and-true trail food or even ideas for busy on-the-go days.
Don't let the package fool you... inside this container I can carry 8 hard boiled eggs, which is enough for breakfasts for a three day hike.  I like this empty container because it is super light and the tall and narrow shape makes it very packable.
Have a great paleo trail recipe to share? Email the Caveman and maybe he'll tell everyone... just watch where you step.
