    I will be trying cold soaking and am curious about anyone’s tried and true meal recommendations.

    Also, when I read about the crotch pot I initially thought it was a joke. Are folks having success with this?

    Thanks,

    Lowell

    Refried beans or red split lentils are what many seem to share. Everybody prob thought the crotch pot was a joke the first time they heard it ; ). I think it gets used but I have not heard much feedback. Van Peski is apparently still using it.

    The last couple of years I’ve done cold-soak for all of my lunches.  I love the Packit Gourmet meals:

    • Many Beans Salad – 770 cal, 25g protein
    • Texas Mesquite Chicken Saled – 400 cal, 40g protein
    • Southwest Corn and Black Bean Salad – 530 cal, 21g protein
    • Trailside Bean & Cheese Burrito – 410 cal, 23g protein

    What I really like about the cold soak is that they’re ready the instant we stop for lunch.  For the chicken salads I wait to mix the mayo in until I stop, but the water is in there from breakfast.  If it’s really hot outside (which I desperately try to avoid) I’ll put the cold soak package into my coozie to keep it cool.

    Wow @ Todd! Does that end up tasting like a creamsicle?

    Never tried ’em together.  Maybe I should!

    Tabouli.  Double the olive oil for more calories and calorie density.  Add the olive oil to the cracked wheat in advance so it acts like an absorbent, although an 8-ounce PEET #1 plastic water bottle makes a reliable, leak-proof container.  Rather then fresh diced tomatoes, I add dehydrated tomato flakes.

    Add cold water an hour before lunch.
