WHAT I EAT IN A DAY | Vegan (ish) Camping Food

October 17, 2019 100 By Ewald Bahringer


Hello! My name is Elsa, I live in a
13ft Scamp trailer and today I’m going to show you
what I ate throughout the day. I start my morning with dates.
I freaking love dates. I’ve been able to buy them in bulk here in
Arizona and I cannot get enough of them. They’re really sweet, kind of like a
giant raisin but … sweeter. I cut them in half, take out the pit
and then I put some almond butter on them. So good. And then for a little protein and omega-3s,
I sprinkle on some chia seeds. Then I top each of those with a slice
of banana and I am telling you this is SO GOOD. Next I drank some greens powder
from Barron’s cousin, Amber. You can find a link to this down below
if you’re interested! We love greens powder to supplement the nutrients we
might be missing when we’re traveling or can’t get into town for greens. It’s got spirulina, alfalfa, barley grass, wheat grass, spinach, kale and all kinds of other nutrients. My morning meditative ritual
is making cowboy coffee. I use this little PocketRocket butane stove mostly for water boiling inside. Cowboy coffee is a camping style of coffee making that requires the least amount of trash, tools and effort. I bring my water close to boiling, add a few tablespoons of coffee and let it sit for four minutes. Then, I pour it through a strainer and into my mug. What happens is the boiling water makes the coffee grounds sink to the bottom. You’re supposed to pour cold water on top
to make them all sink but here in the desert, my water is pretty room-temperature,
so I skip that step and the strainer works just fine. And now I’m gonna let Barron show you
how he made his daily peanut butter sandwich. Dave’s bread is the best bread. I’m eating both the heels because Elsa won’t eat them and we only have two
other pieces left. I’ll make the sacrifice it’s okay. Peanut butter, lots of peanut butter because calories. This almond butter we also got
at the store that had out-of-date food. It was like four dollars and this is normally
a fifteen dollar can-o-almond butter. -By the way, the store he’s
talking about here is a little shop inside of a giant flea market that we
found in the middle of the desert. It’s run by a grocery store liquidator
that buys beat-up or recently expired foods and sells them for cheap and this
little shop happened to have a lot of organic health food so we stocked up. Some flaxseed because I heard
that it’s good for you. Some chia, we got these and the flax
from that expired food store too. then seal it all in with some honey. OOOOOH YEAAAAUUHHHHHH Pretty fire. I knew it would be. Later in the day I also made a sandwich. I spread some ghee on my bread. Ghee is
non-dairy butter and it’s really nice because it doesn’t have to be refrigerated. I cut a tomato and an avocado and added salt, pepper, cayenne and a little bit of lime. Then spread some of my homemade hummus all over my toast, put on the avocado, tomato and topped that with sunflower
and pumpkin seeds. I added some more pepper and
some nutritional yeast and then topped that sandwich
and it was freaking incredible. We drink a good amount of water every
day and something that helps me remember to do so and makes it
a little more enjoyable is to squirt some lime or lemon into my water. I think that’s good for making your
body more alkaline too? It tastes really good. Honey, I’m home! (laughing with sass) What did we get? We got carrots, oranges, peppers for hummus, lemon, -Look at all those warm colors! more Dave’s Bread because it’s the best bread, and toe-nail clippers for you. We are gonna go on a walk to the water! Did you get sand in your face? That’s what happens when you do that! You crazy! For dinner I made a kale salad. I like to
chop up whatever veggies we have laying around and put them into the salad. Today was tomato, shallot and bell pepper. To make the dressing, I used the rest of my homemade hummus, some olive oil, a good squeeze of lemon and three caps of apple
cider vinegar and then I gave that a stir. Then I add some salt, cayenne, pepper
and stir it all up. The kale I’m using is dinosaur kale and
I cut off the stem by folding each leaf in half and cut it out,
then chop up all the leaves into little pieces. I massage the kale so it’s tender and
easier to chew and makes easier for my body to assimilate. I had all the ingredients to the bowl, stir it around and then we eat! Mmm! Yeah, that’s really good! Mmm-hmm! I’m having one more date for dessert. It’s about 6:30pm right now and it’s time to go to bed! Thanks for watching and I’ll see you
in the next video! Bye!
