Our country’s pioneer didn’t have a fancy diet, but they certainly did amazing things on the energy foods they ate. My Grandpa grew up on the plains of North Dakota, lived in a sod house (more of a hut) and drove a team of horses for a living. He used to make some amazing food. One of my favorites was corn dodgers. Not much more than fried corn meal with water and salt. If you’re an older person like me you might remember John Wayne eating corn dodgers in the movie ‘True Grit.’ But a bag of those and some jerky and water and you were eating well. Google corn dodgers and you will find a wealth of recipes. Easier to make than pemmican, too.
