Author Jeffrey Ryan was interviewed by Maine NBC affiliate WCSH’s Rob Caldwell to discuss Ryan’s Beyond Ramen cookbook, featuring tips and recipes for eating well on the trail.
Ryan notes that early on in his hiking career he declared, “the fall of the ramen empire” when he was burned out on old standby trail foods. He reasoned there was no need to suffer poor food on the trail, when nutrition and taste should be at a premium, so he worked on developing a set of new trail staples.
“As my readers well know, I’ll still detour for a great cheeseburger, but we still eat pretty well in between, which keeps the side trips at a minimum”, says Ryan.
