Honey’s Zero Waste Food Tour

Honey’s back at it with another Vlog update from the trail, only this time she takes us on a zero-waste “food tour,” showcasing what she typically eats in a day and how she packs her food. Below you can read a detailed outline of breakfast, lunch, and dinner set up.


Every morning, Honey starts off her day with an oat and fruit mixture. She adds a little bit of sugar and pairs it with a piece of fresh fruit, typically an orange, mango, or whatever fruit she can snag when she passes through own.


It’s widely known that hikers eat a very carb/grain based diet, so to get around this hurdle, Honey drinks a shake at lunch. Filled with veggies and fruits, she uses the Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal (protein powder) and combines it with water to make a nutrient-packed shake.


For most dinners on trail, Honey eats lentils. She pairs this with with either white minute rice, brown rice that she previously dehydrated, or couscous. Other additions to this meal include dehydrated beans and veggies, including kidney beans, cabbage, and tomatoes. She adds a heaping scoop of spinach powder to her meals, which she finds to be a good source of calcium, vitamins, and minerals.

To “keep everything as interesting as possible,” Honey adds various spices to her meals. She carries with her garlic powder, salt, lemon herbs, onion powder, pepper, and hot sauce.


To keep everything zero waste, Honey packages her food in biodegradable bags or reusable containers. She also carries with her paper bags so she can buy her items in bulk when resupplying in towns.
