Melissa’s Mix: A Recovery Drink for Women

January 28th, 2013 (2 Comments)

Over the last four decades research has established a gender based difference in the physiological response to exercise with more recent efforts examining post-exercise, gender-specific recovery. Findings indicate that as far as post-workout nutritional strategies are concerned there doesn’t appear to be a difference between male and female needs:1  Like men, women should focus on […]

Butternut Squash Soup with Flaxseed

December 14th, 2012 (No Comments)

This fall our family was given a butternut squash. Unlike some vegetables, such as the eggplant I was given this summer, I have some experience with this squash and have previously prepared it by roasting it in the oven with a little butter.  Although I enjoy squash prepared this way, I wanted to try something […]

Boundary Waters Foraging Trip: Day 2, A Decent Meal.

November 19th, 2012 (1 Comment)

  Anxious about finding breakfast, I wake at dawn and quickly head out to take advantage of prime fishing, or the short time before the sun gets too high in the horizon. One advantage of not having food is that I don’t have to take the time to make breakfast or even pack a snack […]

November 15th, 2012 (1 Comment)

For those of you who haven’t followed the previous posts, I entered the Minnesota/Canada Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area and relied exclusively on foraged and hunted (fished) foods for the entirety of a 7 day trip.

A simple, healthy, and easy sandwich: Garbanzo Bean and Avocado

November 9th, 2012 (No Comments)

I enjoy cooking and experimenting with different foods with the caveat that recipes are not overly time intensive or too complicated.  Recipe books and cards handed down through families can be the source of quality recipes, but I find they often tend to use foods I’ve never heard of or consist of so many ingredients […]

The Rock Warrior

September 28th, 2012 (No Comments)

Bouldering is a newer discipline of rock climbing in which one does very difficult and often gymnastic movement up short climbs (boulders). Ropes are not utilized for this style of rock climbing, instead crash pads are used to protect ground falls, which are frequent. In bouldering, one seeks out the most difficult and aesthetic climbs […]

Another Mike’s Mix customer, Frank, sent us this tasty recipe just in time for the autumn season.  Frank says,  “Pumpkin Spice is a lot more than advertised!  It has a very creamy, milkshake like texture and if you have any customer or yourself who are big fans of either apple or pumpkin pie, this is […]

I was […]

Preperation for Foraging Trip

I begin my trip to the Boundary Waters, where I will rely on fishing and foraging for food, this coming Monday the 16th of July. I am accompanied by my longtime friend Jorma and this will be our 6th trip into canoe country together. Jorma is also excited about the prospect of foraging and fishing, […]

Also known as an Iced Mocha Recovery Drink!  This recipe was submitted by a Mike’s Mix user, Lisa, who is doing the P90X program along with her family.  Although trying to cut down on caffeine, they have allotted themselves this one treat.  In her words “No workout, no caffeine”.   Although it would be difficult to […]
