GEAR REVIEW: Paleo Meals To Go


Paleo Meals To Go was born out of love and passion for health and exercise, the spirit of the great outdoors, and advocacy for a holistic, wholesome Paleo lifestyle. We provide the best in class, freeze-dried Paleo meals to those on a path less traveled. Wherever our customers go, Paleo Meals To Go gets them there. With unexplored territories on the horizon, backpacking food that gets back to your roots and to your adventure is our prerogative. We balance experience with passion, providing the ultimate combination of nutrition, taste, and convenience to enhance the journey ahead. ~

Paleo Meals has several options including breakfast, snacks and dinner. They are super easy to make, just pour some hot water in the packets, close it up and wait. Once your meal has rehydrated itself, dig in because these meals are tasty and healthy!

We tried the dinner meals first and were pleasantly surprised by the flavor and quantity. One packet filled us up and tasted great! We’ll definitely be taking these on our next paddle trip to use once our frozen meats are used up. This is the next best thing after a fresh cooked meal!

We are excited to try to the other options Paleo Meals has to offer.

GEAR REVIEW: Electro-Bites Fuel100

Electro-Bites Fuel 100

As any athlete knows, its important to have the energy while your enjoying your outdoor adventures. Throughout my many multi-day paddle adventures all over the East Coast, food and sustaining your energy is the biggest thing to think about. If your on a self-support trip you need to think about not only what food give you the best energy and calories but also how to pack it light and small. Electro-Bites gives you just that, quick and easy energy while keeping it in a small and compact package. It stuffs easily in any dry bag or life jacket pocket for that fast snack when yo start to feel sluggish and tired.

Electro-Bites are designed specifically for endurance athletes to help extend training and improve race performance. Designed as an alternative to the sweet and sticky products currently on the market each 100 calorie pack contains bite sized snacks that are slightly salty in taste.  Electro-Bites contain only the best all-natural ingredients including coconut oil and agave syrup.

In addition to calorie replacement each serving contains 190mg Sodium, 55mg Potassium and 46mg Magnesium.  Using Electro-Bites may reduce or eliminate the need for electrolyte replacement and other nutritional supplements the body needs to perform at the highest level.

Electro-Bites were designed to dissolve easily in a dry mouth and absorb quickly into your system. There is nothing like this on the market.

The variety pack offers you a great way to try several different flavors in the Fuel100 line up. “We are excited to offer a variety box of Electro-Bites. It’s a great way to sample flavors to see which ones you like best. Each box will contain at least three different flavors.”

Simply Salty:

Simply salty is our base flavor on which all the others are built. We’ve always loved this flavor and during trials and testing we found that so did everyone else. It is great to use early on or when you are ready for a more simple flavor. It combines the salty signature of Electro-Bites while letting the lightly sweet agave and coconut come through.

Pumpkin Spice:

Pumpkin Spice started as a seasonal product but due to popular demand, it is here to stay! We have also reformulated the recipe to make it even better.  We have added real pumpkin pie spices – cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice to the formula creating a tasty treat that delivers calories, electrolytes and naturopathic benefits.  These Electro-Bites are dusted with ultra fine sea salt for a delightful combination of salt and sweet.

Salty Vinegar:

Salty Vinegar was born from our desire to take a big step away from a sweet flavor profile. Sea salt and vinegar potato chips are one of our favorite cheat foods, but certainly not a great option during racing and training. We developed the next best thing. Our signature formula is lightly dusted with sea salt and powdered distilled white vinegar.

Salty Vanilla:

Reminiscent of a cookie, Salty Vanilla is our most popular flavor.  A dusting of Madagascar vanilla powder, fine sea salt, and a little sugar we’ve created what might be the perfect comfort fuel for a long effort. This is a simply delightful flavor.

Apple Cinnamon:

We took our signature formula and flavored it with natural apple and cinnamon spices. The apple takes the spotlight in these Electro-Bites, with just a hint of cinnamon to enhance the flavor experience. These Electro-Bites are dusted with ultra fine sea salt prior to baking for a delightful combination of salt and sweet.


I tried each flavor and I feel the Apple Cinnamon is the best. The Electro-Bites almost dissolve in your mouth and really do have a pleasant salty taste. I’m not a hug fan of the Cliff bars and these will be a great substitution to the typical granola bars on my next trip.
