Default Protein powder


You never see this included in any trail recipes, etc..

Why is that?

Would make a decent pudding (especially casein based ones), sprinkled on cereal, added to peanut butter balls..

Sometimes I put a scoop in a ziploc bag and pour it into a dry pack before I add water. It's an easy way to make a dry pack a little bit more filling.

I'm going to experiment with some buttermilk powder and water, and see if there is any difference in outcome between whey and casein based powders, or wether buttermilk powder is even neccesary. That with some slivered almonds would make a decent dessert..

Google for some paleo recipes. We use whey or soy quite a bit to make paleo treats for backpacking trips. You can easily add it to muffin mix or loaf mix or whatever you are into. Take the toxic gluten out by using almond flour or coconut flour (very fibrous).

You can also make a paleo oatmeal for breakfast by using ground flax (or linseed as it is called in Oz), protein powder, and then throw in some dried fruit if you like, toss a few nuts on top, and, if you really lucky you can find some powdered coconut milk that doesn't have sugar added.

Sandy, thanks for the great idea, I am already severely limited to foods I can it, so it's always good to find new recipes full of foods I can eat.

Cheers.

Ground flax would be good.. Not a very high calorie to weight ratio, though..

Actually, ground flax is very light and pretty much all fat so the calorie to weight ratio is very good.

Flax does have fat but it is also very high in fiber so it would not have a very high calorie to weight or volume ratio.

Yes, its relatively light, but as mentioned, the high fiber content makes not as calorie dense as other stuff like cheese, for example..

Plus, wouldn't it go rancid in fairly warm temps?

Doesn't seem to. I've been hauling it around Oz in 30 plus C temps and it is fine. Cheese on the other hand...

Add powdered coconut milk to increase the calories. Sadly, most of it in NA has sugar, but in Oz you can get it without sugar and it too is pretty much all fat. Doesn't go rancid either.

Powdered coconut milk would be good.. But wouldn't it be as pricey, if not more so, than protein powder?

I found this powdered whole milk stuff called Nestle Nado that is pretty cheap.

No, coconut milk powder is way cheaper than protein powder and readily available at regular grocery stores. It's not as good as the canned stuff, but it makes just about anything you eat in the backcountry taste good.
