My couple's group from church is going camping. We will have coolers, and DH and I will have 2 small refrigerators. I always WAIT till the last week before to make crackers and such for trips. This time I want to be prepared. I haven't been making crackers lately, and I want to make some, but now I don't know which cracker or bread was RAVED about on the boards. Also, I want a dessert that will travel well...maybe some cookies or such that others can enjoy that doesn't have to be frozen, or refrigerated??? What is something ya'll have taken places that SAD eaters have enjoyed? I know I'm gonna take AVO'S.....and as much fresh produce as I can...also I know there is a farmers market nearby....it might be fun to "create" something that other's would be like..."wow that was easy, and SOOOO good"
Thanks, I know ya'll will come through!

Bringing this back up. I am thinking I will make a granola, and maybe some dips, and a cracker. The "head" of our ministry group will make sure I have plenty of fresh produce, she tells me it's part of the ministry to make sure everyone has what they need to be comfortable. She commented to my DH yesterday (Sunday) that we have diabetics, etc. that have special dietary needs and when DH and I take the "head" of the ministry we will have to do the same thing. OK...enough of that.
WHAT WOULD YOU TAKE???

If I had a dehydrator, I'd buy a bunch of hot peppers, chop them, and dehydrate them. Then I'd mix them with tomatoes and avos. Also bring a variety of greens (lettuce, kale, verdolaga, green onions, etc.) and a variety of fruits.

I LOVE flax crackers. Mine have kept very well. I use the whole flax seed and my body digests it. My favorites were flavored with a little nama shoyu and lots of lime (including zest) and some red chili powder. You can spread some avocado and salsa on those and make a SAD person happy.
Papaya that I had recently was not very sweet. My dh is diabetic and he could have it without messing up his sugar. Perhaps dehydrate some papaya or maybe coat it with some coconut oil or I bought coconut meat mush from the freezer at my Asian store recently for $1.39. I have not worked with it much yet so it is just a thought.
The other thing that I like about the flax crackers is that they seem to be very filling. I gave some to my dh one morning and he did not eat till the evening meal and did not even notice (nor did his sugar notice) that he had not eaten.
