If you're looking for a food related gift for a camper or a hiker, take a look at roasted soybeans. We bought a few bags from The Bean Ladies (who offer 19 different flavours and ship across Canada), but what makes them a good gift?...
- Weight: When camping and hiking, weight matters. You always try and decide what to put in your backpack and what to leave at home. Soybeans are very light!
- Nutrient Density: Soybeans are high protein, high in fibre, gluten free, have no cholesterol, contain Omega 3 fatty acids, and offer lots of good vitamins and healthy fats.
- Shelf life: If you refrigerate them, they have a shelf life of six months. They won't go bad on your camping trip either once you open the bag, so you don't have to worry about how to transport them.
