Serves 1 | Prep time: 5 minutes | Cooking time: 10 minutes It's no wonder porridge is a go-to camping breakfast. It's easy to make, is really adaptable and uses ingredients you've likely already got in your cupboard.

Since much of your muscle recovery happens at night while you sleep, one of the most important times to load up on protein is at dinner. That’s where this dehydrated Lentil Chilli comes in! Using a combination of red lentils and...

Whether I’m backpacking, kayak camping or truck camping, my first order of business in the morning is making coffee. I have a Black Rifle Coffee t-shirt that reads, “But first, coffee”. And that about sums up my priorities in the morning. At home, my options are easy, Keurig or Espresso Machine. In the woods or on the shores of the Great Lakes, it’s a different story altogether. Thank God for those compact cooking systems like Jetboil. Although I own stoves from several manufacturers, the newly designed 2018 Jetboil Flash is by far the quickest to boil water.
