Julie and Henry are Mother and Son – and they sell a darn good adventure trail food! 

By the way, Henry is the FIRST man to be on Tough Cookie Podcast! We had a blast 🙂

One of FFTS best sellers is the Triple Peanut Slaw – AND it has been a recipe fro the beginning. 

They started cooking at Prep Kitchen! And have now been there almost 5 years.

Julie is ALWAYS thinking about food 🙂 Sounds like someone else I know… 

Henry works on being able to market the meal and have a certain number of carbs, protein, and calories. AND of course, it HAS TO TASTE GOOD.

We are always playing and pushing recipes to be everything they need it to be. 

 

Julie’s Cookbook!! 

Julie just wrote a cookbook and it was released this fall! 

The Dehydrator Cookbook for Outdoor Adventurers: Healthy, Delicious Recipes for Backpacking and Beyond

She talks about her process of writing a book – including how she pushed back on the publisher, AND how they listened. 

(Sidenote: To check out another podcast that talks about all things writing, check out #AmWriting podcast!)

Listening to Julie, I’m reminded of something my favorite planner creator says: 

“You’re not going to run out of ideas” – Elise Blaha Cripe creator of the Get To Work Book 

Some of the yummiest looking recipes that Darlene is excited to try: 

A couple of recipes that I can’t wait to try: Carrot Pineapple Oatmeal, Salmon and Roasted Sweet Potato Hash, Smokey Red Bean and Bacon Wraps, and the Sesame Ginger Kale Slaw – I mean, whaaaah? This all sounds amazing.

 

On fighting burnout: 

It’s key for both Julie and Henry to take time off and get outside! While at the same time, they are sharing the struggle of wearing many, many hats in their business. If YOU are feeling like that, you are not alone! 

It sounds like they are a fan of the “microadventure”
