what to pack for 2 weeks in the desert

As promised, I am sharing with you my shopping list for what I packed to survive in the high desert alone for 2 weeks without any grocery shopping whatsoever.  I was very relieved that my initial shopping list that I’ve shared below and game plan was successful, as you can see from the video I was quite literally in the middle of nowhere.  Not even a grocery store in town.

My game plan was pretty simple: start with fresh foods that I eat right away, then move onto canned, dried, and frozen goods.  It worked swimmingly, and I have to say that knowing that I had a limited supply and had to “ration” (not starve, just not eat everything anytime I wanted) was very meditative and made me appreciate trying different flavor combinations with the same ingredients!

jicama-salad-in-mugUp until last night, I had gone 9 days straight without talking to a single living soul face to face.  Certainly the longest for me in my life.  For those of you following me on snapchat (username bubblechildcook), you are well aware of this displacement that has whisked me out of the land of the civilization and stuck myself in the land of the free (?) for two weeks to get some creative work done.

I have of course brought my cat, but I guess I needed a model?
