Is there such thing as a paleo marshmallow? I'll be all over it.

 

And yay! A tent!

I'll take a tent equipped with a lightning rod if you wouldn't mind.  Still able to roast marshmallows and eggs on the ground down here.. sigh.

 

Might I suggest a 30-foot pole with a long grounding wire, set a goodly distance from the camping area? Tents and lightning strikes don't mix. *grabs shovel and roll of copper wire*

Hello! I'm a new adventurer, and thought I may pop in to introduce myself. I'm Tzippi, currently residing in coastal Japan. I am training for A) my next Tough Mudder, and B) climbing the highest mountain on Shikoku. I love hiking, bodyweight workouts (especially the playground workout), dancing, yoga, and cooking vegetarian/pescetarian food!

Hey everybody, finally back to the rangers after a year or so absence. Try to stop by as many threads as I can.

 

I am generally into cross training. I am currently running a PVP from the book/app You are Your own Gym.

 

I do a cave man workout on the weekends, and enjoy trying out new/rediculous forms of exercise. I keep it all pretty well organized in my battle log.

 

Keep on keeping on!

Hi everyone, I've decided I want to be a Ranger when I grow up so I thought I'd wander on over and say hi! Mind if I share your fire for a bit?

Hate days when you forget your rain gear.  Anyone have a spare pair of rain boots I could slog through?

 

Sorry, I do try to keep two pairs of running shoes at all times so that one can dry while I wear the other.

 That is an excellent idea. I will emulate you immediately. If I can find running shoes my size in Japan. Well, there's always the mens' shoe section.

Hello, camp! I'm doing my first challenge now, but I'm aspiring to be a Ranger. Hopefully I'll be seeing more of you guys in November, but until then is it alright if I lurk a bit?

 

Also, someone asked earlier about paleo marshmallows. Original marshmallows were made from the mallow plant as a source of starch, which I'm pretty sure would count as paleo. Nowadays they're made from gelatin and refined sugar, but I don't see any reason that honey wouldn't work. I may play around with this when I get closer to my weight goals.

 

Anyways, don't mind me, I'm just gonna creep a bit...

Honestly, honey is still sugar in the end. As far as paleo goes, if you have to eat a treat, just eat the treat. I would goes as far as saying sugar is better than honey.

Honey has more stuff in it than just sugar, some micronutrients that make it a bit better than refined sugar. The flavor also come out when it's used in confections, so honey marshmallows might taste better than refined, if you like honey.

 

And honey also doesn't crystallize as readily as refined sucrose, since it's highly hygroscopic. So stuff made with it can last longer than refined.

 

But from a macronutrient perspective, yeah, it's essentially sugar. And I'm wanting to cut back on sweets, so no marshmallows for me for a while.
