I’m pleased as punch to note that I succeeded today in baking vegan chocolate chip cookies in a makeshift cardboard box oven at camp with charcoal - not just ordinary barbecue charcoal with crazy chemicals, but actual charred wood left in the fire ring at the adjacent camp. It took some prep to get it glowing enough to heat the oven to baking temperature, but once it hit 400F I just followed the recipe as normal - except for the flax egg of course! ๐Ÿ˜‰#campingoven #cardboardoven #diyoven #cookies #vegancookies #campcookies #charcoaloven #vegan #fulltimecampers #offthegrid #offgridcooking #electricityfree #flaxegg #aquafaba #yummmm (at Wickenburg, Arizona)

Homemade Vegan Pizza… At Camp!! So happy I finally figured out how to do it with my backpacking gear. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŽ‰ The method I developed was to bake it inside two black pie pans sandwiched together, Boy Scout Dutch Oven style. I placed it right atop my tin-can wood-gasifying stove. Then placed a foil-lined cardboard box over the whole deal to make an oven. To raise the pizza off the pan, I used a flat rock as a pizza stone. I preheated the whole deal for 10 minutes, added the personal-sized pizza into the pie-pan oven on the pizza stone. And just 8 minutes later, out came one of the best vegan pizzas I’ve ever had! It was SOOO good! The vegan “notzarella” of course was homemade and came out amazing on my first round of experimenting. I’m still toying with the batch. My final touch – adding some “probiotic” sprouting water from lentils has it tasting incredibly similar to real cheese, and I’m letting it culture a bit more to see what happens. ๐Ÿ˜‹ #homemadepizza #veganpizza #DIY #campingpizza #camping #vegan #vegancheese #veganmozarella #campcooking #cardboardoven #notzarella #backpackingstove #campingoven

Makin’ Super Easy Rubio’s Style Fire Salsa - So good! Exactly as I remember. The recipe is simple: Lightly roast some pepper flakes, add to tomato paste with some sugar and salt. (Careful to keep turning the flakes so they don’t burn, because the fumes are the worst!) #salsa #redsalsa #hotsalsa #rubios #vegan

Circular Kiva Of Unmarked Mountaintop Sinagua Ruins, Near Montezuma Well and V-Bar-V Ranch, south of Sedona, AZ - Of note: Sacred Mountain ruins site is perfectly lined up with the “keyhole window” in the Kiva wall, not far from V-Bar-V Ranch Sacred Petroglyph Site known for the Solar Calendar that marks the Equinox and Solstice times. There are also a few cliff dwellings around the rim. #ruins #ancestralpuebloan #sinagua #anasazi #cliffdwellings #arizona #sedona #rimrock #vbarv (at Sedona, Arizona)

Stewing Lunch On My Windshield Solar Oven - Lentil Vegetable Soup Mixed Into Sprouted Brown Rice ๐Ÿ˜‹ - The Solar Oven is nothing more than a cardboard box cut to wedge under the windshield, lined with foil, then stuck in an oven bag. It would work better with two layers of cardboard with an air gap between, but it works well enough, helped by the fact that the truck cab is already a solar oven. ๐Ÿ˜Š Lunch should be ready by the time I’m done internetting in the cafe. Of course I’m just reheating. If I was cooking from scratch, it would take a lot longer in my more serious solar oven. (at Cottonwood, Arizona)

My Homebrewed Water Kefir. I’ve had this batch going for almost six years now, tending to it only sporadically, adding sugar water. The kefir grains, which I bought online, are in the mesh pouch. This photo was when I was filtering new grains into the pouch. If you’re new to probiotics and think in terms of yogurt or kombucha, you may not realize that authentic homebrewed kefir has many times the number of friendly bacteria, with 40+ different strains identified - (second only to Kimchi, which can have hundreds - I brew my kimchi with kefir added for the ultimate probiotic cocktail). #kefir #waterkefir #probiotics #probiotic #rawvegan #rawvegans #rawvegansofig #guthealth #healthygut #gutflora (at Greeley, Colorado)

(Another view) Playin’ with my rocks and decided I wanted something I could wear, so I made this. It’ll do for now. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŒบ

I just used a few spares from my medicine bag. Amethyst, Sodalite, and Tiger’s Eye (a formula inspired my new friend Hunter) + Angelite, a few old Chinese coins, and a few found items (always important!).

Though it may appear to be a planned design, I actually just wrapped according to my intuition, checking crystal orientation as I went along. I’m discovering new unintentional symbolism every time I look at it!

And honestly, I don’t even know what it “does” yet. (Since I made it, I feel a bit “immune” to it, like the way Reiki clients would tell me my hands are scorching, but I don’t feel a thing lol.)

Camper Kimchi! Day 10? I lost track. It’s been in the cooler and just opened it up and it’s awesome! A little too salty bc I forgot to drain it a little, but I love it. - [Previous] I can’t always find the usual ingredients. Today’s choices are Rainbow Chard, Kale, and Stir-Fry Mix (broccoli, carrots, snow peas), and Ginger. And of course Korean Pepper Flakes. (I don’t use Garlic and Onion in mine.) In addition to the salt lacto-ferment, I brew it with Water Kefir for the ultimate probiotic concoction.

Seems Kalฤซ really loves me today. My Macbook won’t turn on. I drove into Boulder to find a repair kit. (Because no way can I afford a repair => D.I.Y.) No dice. But I got someone to at least open it for me. But it STILL won’t turn on! AND THEN my power cord literally fell apart in the store. Meanwhile I have a client in limbo without a website, and orders coming in. So I’m currently in the Boulder college district (very cool btw!) doing the WTF walk. Praise Mother Kalฤซ! I’m sure it’s a sign but not sure what yet. Ideas? ๐Ÿ˜Š p.s….Anyone in Boulder who could lend me a laptop for a few days? P.p.s. Not to pretend this is really that big of a deal, esp considering my close friends who are experiencing Mฤ’s love in a much more dramatic way, while I get a mere “good boy” pat on the head. ๐Ÿ’š
