  • Haiti service trip, need snack ideas

    I am going to Haiti for 3 weeks in July to serve as a midwifery volunteer. I will no have control over my main meals which will be mostly rice and beans and fruit for breakfast. I can bring about 10 pounds of snack and supplamental food with me. What would you bring?

      Do you have time to make a lot of homemade jerky and biltong? Those would be great to have. I would also pack canned fish in olive oil, lara bars, coconut oil or butter, and some trail mix.

      But a diet of fruit, beans and rice wouldn't be too bad.
      Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

        Dado, put a sock in it. She's doing a worthy thing.

        Jammies ideas about jerky/biltong seconded. You may be able to find fish and chicken in foil pouches instead of cans that could pack lighter for you.

        Also try making some pemmican. No refrigeration needed and it keeps a long time. Mark did a post on pemmican that made it sound less than yummy but, if you know your way around a spice rack, it can be really good. Also US wellness meats sells pemmican if you don't want to make it yourself.

        Have a great trip. The world needs more people like you.

            Why don't you buy snack food while you are there? That way you will be supporting their local economy while you are at it. I'm sure there will be Primal type snack food you can buy.

              Oh, Grumpycakes, Dado and I are buddies. It was meant jokingly.
              And, srsly, use some vowels.

                  Good idea, but it will likely not be possible depending on how remote of a location the OP is going to. When I went in 2010 there was no way to buy supplemental food. We were staying at an orphanage with no way to travel other than walking and that was not recommended since there was/is crime in the area.

                  I second (third?) the recommendations for jerky and or pemmican. Pemmican would probably be better since it has plenty of fat, which will be sorely lacking in your diet for those 3 weeks.

                  Thank you for volunteering to help in a place that desperately needs it.
