Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwiches
Though not 100 percent “paleo friendly”, peanut butter and bacon cannot be beat for protein content (I use a high fiber, whole grain bread). It is my “go to” food source for a midday meal when I’m elk hunting.
I will stuff a PBB in my Badlands Superday Pack in the morning, along with a small bagful of trail mix, and perhaps a pepperoni stick. Plenty of food to get me through a day of punishment in the elk woods. Vacuum sealing the sandwiches extends their life significantly, so I will seal up a couple weeks worth right before I leave for the high country.
Protein becomes all-important when you are tearing down muscle, day after day, and I can’t think of a better way to supplement it in a backcountry situation. I started making them after I noticed their popularity on Bowsite, and noticed that many of the serious backcountry guys eat them to include even Cameron Hanes.
I prefer Applewood smoked bacon, and I like to smear a little creamed honey on them. It makes for a very delicious and wholesome midday meal. As a matter of fact, I just had one today, after fighting head-high brush on the side of a mountain for about 3 hours.
Next time you’re making bacon, slap one together, and check it out. You won’t be sorry!
