Trail Mavens, Cooking Up a Storm

If you've ever been on a Trail Mavens backpacking trip, you know we generally eschew freeze-dried foods in favor of slightly heavier (but WAY more delicious) 'real' food - think actual vegetables and stuff you'd eat at home in your kitchen - and you've probably tried our nutty veggie couscous.

We shared this signature recipe with our buds at Adventure Dining Guide, who made it into a sweet little vid. Check it out to get the recipe, and to see us remain calm in the face of a crazy bee swarm on Mt. Tam.
