One of the most frequent questions I get asked is about what I eat, and I can see why. When you live without electricity (so no kitchen appliances whatsoever) and it also takes you a 30 minute hike, 20 minute truck ride AND another hour long bus ride just to get to a decent grocery store, things can get complicated. Though I've always loved to bake, I never really had the time or motivation to experiment with day to day meals, and that is one thing I certainly do have all alone in my hut- time.
Over the past few months I've learned a lot about cooking in less than ideal situations and can proudly make anything from birthday cakes to pumpkin curry on my little gas stove. So, I figured I'd share a few of the things I've been whipping up, and maybe even make this a more frequent post. Because hey, delicious food is awesome, and if I can make it in the middle of nowhere, it's a near guaranteed success.
Breakfast: Most days I just have coffee and some fruit, but sometimes I like to mix it up, especially if I have a big work day ahead.
