Menu Planning 101- Article #4

The Happy Camper: Menu Planning 101- Kevin Callan

Rating: ****

The Menu Planning 101 article is very educating in the sense that it will inform the do's and don't's when planning your meals for trips.

The article is about the healthier and less expensive options their are available to an individual for going on a outdoor trip made by Kevin Callan. Each suggestion that is given has information on the nutrients it contains, as well as a bit of background and what other foods would compliment the dish. At the end of the article there is a video about these college students explaining what they are eating to show the leader (Kevin) if the dish was healthy and contains enough nutrients. Kevin originally believed he was teaching a course on Advance Wilderness Skills to college students. However, he ended up teaching more about nutrients than fire-lighting or wilderness navigation, because of the students lack of knowledge. 

I enjoyed this article, because it informed me of the cheaper and healthier options there are available to everyone. I will make sure to include the options provided to me from the article for my canoeing trip as their is a budget for nutritious meals for a four day canoe trip. This article is very important and clarifies where you can get the options that are stated. I gave the article four stars, because it gets right to the point on what compliments the dish, who used it in the ancient times and where you can get the ingredients. I highly recommend this article to be read to anyone who is going on an outdoor trip as they will have more healthier and cheaper options for their meal plans.
