Latest Recipes

Greg & Jess are adventure seekers who have lived in their van for over 2 years in order to be outside more and spend more quality time together doing the things they love. Between mountain bike rides, hikes, fishing, and rock climbing sessions, they like to wind down in their van with a simple and healthy meal. While they don’t like to cook that much, they like to eat, A LOT! So they end up cooking quite a bit and have found that simple, one-pot meals are their favorite go-to recipes for living on the road.

Potatoes, Eggs & Black Bean Breakfast Scramble

This is one of our favorite breakfasts and we have eaten it multiple times per week, for several years. Eggs are essentially the perfect food. Tasty, nutritional, and very inexpensive. When scrambled with the satisfying starch of a potato, some black beans and your favorite hot sauce on top, you’ll look forward to having it day after day. With the cost of this meal being less than $2 per portion, you really can’t go wrong!
