Pacific Seafood Bisque
This is our favorite provisioning find--we discovered it on Amazon. While it is somewhat expensive at $6.25 per serving, it makes a very special lunch or light dinner. It comes in a foil pouch that you simply drop into boiling water for a few minutes and then pour into a bowl.
|One envelope is one generous serving. Simply heat the |
envelope in boiling water and serve in a bowl.
I'm sure you have heard the saying that "everything tastes better with bacon." Bacon usually takes a lot of time to prepare. We found Yoder's canned bacon on Amazon and tried a can before ordering more.
|The can of bacon that we sampled lasted us six weeks, |
using it in various meals in various ways.
Canned Ground Beef
We use ground beef in many different dishes. Canned ground beef is best suited for chili, pasta sauce, stroganoff, or protein added to a soup. (It is not suited for making hamburgers on the grill).
|Using one can of canned ground beef in chili generally |
makes three meals for the two of us.
Powdered Whole Eggs
We bought several jars of Hoosier Hill Farm-brand whole egg powder on Amazon. The instruction for the powdered eggs couldn't be any simpler: "Two teaspoons egg powder plus two teaspoons of water equals one egg."
|The jar of whole egg powder wights one pound and makes about 48 |
eggs. We have used the egg powder to make scrambled
eggs and various dishes requiring breading.
These are high-protein, low-carb pancakes made by simply adding water to the boxed mix and cooking in a fry pan like any other pancakes. Kodak cakes are available on Amazon as well as in most Target stores. When you look for them in Target, they are usually in a different area than other pancake mixes.
|While there are several available types, we prefer the |
power cakes with added protein.
|Maggie made these pancakes this morning using the Kodiak Cakes mix. |
We use Land-O-Lakes Light butter and Vermont sugar-free
syrup to maintain our low-carb diet.
Salmon in Pouches
Pouches provide a lower volume of waste than cans--so, we searched to find salmon in pouches. We purchased them from Amazon.
|You can used salmon in almost any recipe that you would |
normally use canned tuna, like casseroles.

We discovered these chicken sausages at our local supermarket and there are several good brands each with several different flavors available--we like Aidells-brand spicy mango flavor the best. These sausages are relatively low in fat compared to pork sausages and they are pre-cooked. They simply have to be heated up for a meal and they are great for grilling on board.
Again, our so-called finds are low-carb to suit our dietary restrictions. Everyone's tastes are different but we think these are worth a try if you are provisioning for a long-term cruise on a sailboat like we are.
