Himalayan Trail Treats from Patagonia
on 01 November 2014
Keeping full in the wilderness isn't always pretty. Sure, you might luck out and stumble upon some Cloudberries or Chanterelle mushrooms, but more often than not it's protein bars and freeze-dried astronaut meals. Luckily the folks at Patagonia—known for their sustainable performance apparel—recently expanded their Provisions line of equally earth- and health-conscious foods to include Tsampa soup. Founder Yvon Chouinard first came to love the roasted barley staple on climbing trips to the Himalayas in the '70s. Packed with flavor and energy, the tasty soup is a time-tested source of sustenance in high altitude locales.
