HOW I ATE VEGAN ON TRAIL | PCT Vegan Resupply

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to point out that while this was my typical vegan food set-up for MOST of the trail (especially the end, OR/WA) it does not represent exactly what I ate on trail such as town grocery store add-ons, town restaurant food, trail angel meals, etc. This set-up was, however, my ideal/fave resupply foods to eat while on trail. They’re all vegan, mostly organic, and actually mostly gluten-free (I’m not gluten-free, but it’s a bonus).

Below is a list of all the foods mentioned in the video along with their Amazon links. All are vegan and most are organic. NOTE: If you purchase any of the products by clicking on the specific links I’ve provided I get a little bit of money to help grow my channel, so MUCHAS GRACIAS advance! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your experience! I appreciate it as I learn and get ideas about how to do it myself. (I did find the background music to be more than a bit repetitive and it also distracted from what you were saying.)

  2. Ksenia Asatryan on September 16, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    Excellent food choices! I would add Larabars and tea bags. Will be watching all your videos. Hare Krishna 🙏

    For bulk vegan choices I purchase from znaturals.com Really fast with shipping. High quality items and bulk brings the cost down. Just need to repackage into smaller packages. Especially in areas where water is readily available I would offset that weight by carrying fresh food and veggies good for a few days. Appreciate the thought here put into nutrient dense foods and not just junk food (candy and mainstream chips and cookies) that I’ve seen with other vegan suggestions. It is a challenge on the trail as the best vegan choices are fresh foods but this is well thought out vegan trail food. I do like to support organic companies. Thank you! On the TA there were few vegan choices and very little organics especially in the little towns and pit stops. There’s always something though and its nice to have the variety with town food. It also could have changed since then.

    Thank you for this video, I have learned some things. However, eating mostly processed foods packaged in plastic beats the purpose of being vegan for me. I guess I’ll just subsist on rice and lentils with a mix of ground coriander, cumin and fennel seeds with added turmeric powder which I’ll make myself, with oatmeal and dried fruits.

  6. Jim Williams on September 16, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    Have you tried any of the Outdoor Herbivore meals?

  7. Erica Whalen on September 16, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    How do you bounce a box?

  8. deuce fiji on September 16, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    Dirty avocado?…..Im not even gonna ask.

  11. HarvyDanger Films on September 16, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Great information! This is really similar to what I eat on the trails and backpacking trips as a vegan as well.

  12. TainoXtreme on September 16, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    Very good video. I admire you. I just subscribed to your channel. How much did your backpack waited including food? Thank you so much for sharing your video. God bless you.

    Hey Cotezi. Btw, that link for the vegan spreadsheet has changed: https://www.nourishingjourneywellness.com/blog/pacific-crest-trail-resupply-info-vegan-style

  14. Catherine DiMarco on September 16, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    I don’t know if you still read this, but is it possible to find out where you sent your resupply boxes? Thank you. This video gave me a lot of good ideas 😀

  15. Trail Ninja on September 16, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    I had to switch over to my trail channel account just so I could like this again. I”ve watched this 3 times already. Also a huge fan of Mary Jane’s meals.

  16. Parker 8541 on September 16, 2019 at 6:39 pm

    Terrific! Best food video I’ve seen so far. Cute and funny! Great advice!

  17. Julien on September 16, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    what was your resupply strategy ? did you send all your boxes before the trail or along it ? how did you know where to send them ? I am in France and I got very few datas about that. thanks for all you share.

  18. Tony Silverfox on September 16, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    Awesome, cheers

  19. Dassi Herszberg on September 16, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    I got totaly hooked on this devine peanut butter that had chia seeds through it. We dont have it in Australia, and even though im not on the trail at the minute, I soooo crave it!!!!

  20. amyelr on September 16, 2019 at 6:41 pm

    I am so happy to see this! I’ve only recently gotten into the idea of hiking the PCT (or AT), and was wondering how difficult it would be to do as a vegan. Glad to see you’ve done it and it wasn’t a huge deal. Thanks!

  21. Emily Philpott on September 16, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Don’t the Kind Bars have honey in them? 🙁

  22. Liran Y on September 16, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    can It be possible doing online resupply all along the trail?

  23. making awakening on September 16, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    You remind me of paulina from off grid hi

  24. Partha Roy on September 16, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    Amazing!! Vegetarian!! That too in USA!! Nice to hear this. I too became vegan once I came in contact with ISKON. Now I know what I was missing. Hope you inspire many to turn to vegan.

  25. Conscious Evolution on September 16, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    It all sounds so gooood but like..80$ a day, and a lot of space and weight? For like 6 days of food, how did that work?? Thanks for sharing !! Great ideas

  26. Robert Turner on September 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    Thank you for your video! I am a vegan and am getting into hiking. Your ramen 💣 is a great tip. Also the green drinks you did I want to do. Love Dave’s 🥯 ‘s, love 🥑, and appreciate knowing REI has some vegan dinner options. Very helpful video!!

  27. Kail Penner on September 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    What was the budget for your food/trail living??

  28. Mirna Attia on September 16, 2019 at 6:52 pm

    I now feel more confident about being vegan on a trail! It honestly surprises me how bad people eat on a long distance hiking trail! In every hiking video you see burgers and those instant beef meals. Which always made me wondering if getting vegetables or fruits would even be possible. No hiking I’ve found so far have explained resupplying like you do. So thank you! On my first long distance hike I took al those raw crackers (made from vegetables and flax seeds) with me to have enough nutrients, but the weight of the pack (combined with bad shoes) just did too bad for my body and after about 100 miles I already had to let go of most of the food I had with me. I think that when you are doing your first long distance hike you have to invent the wheel yourself ;p which means that it will be inevitable to make mistakes. No matter how informed you are 🙂 Which is also beautiful because it’s part of the process:)

  29. Ana Lucia Valencia on September 16, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Thanks for this video! I’m wondering what was your total budget for food (resupply + town)?

  30. Jay S on September 16, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Great healthy and tasty suggestions! Most selections look much more costly than my typical trail food (double to triple the cost)

  31. John Dow on September 16, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    I am glad I found you I need a vegan ultralight sleeping bag.

  32. Vegana Fit on September 16, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    Hello 🐇💞🌱

  33. Royal Sirico on September 16, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    I’m vegan too! I love your videos! Sending you Happiness and good vibes!

  34. Ridogg81 on September 16, 2019 at 7:06 pm

    Thank you for being vegan and for spreading the message. I appreciate you making this video so other vegans can learn from it. How many miles did you average a day?

  35. TurtleTrax on September 16, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    I have taken your advice on a few good tips already…and now this. Thank you! I’m hiking vegan 2019…

  36. SC EM on September 16, 2019 at 7:09 pm

    I figure that the only real advantage here is that if a bear sees you, it’s going to take one look at you and move on to a squirrel, or a grub, or something with a bit more sustenance. (See ‘Into The Wild’)

  37. rmgphotos on September 16, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Those Kind bars contain honey.  Almost vegan.  Happy to learn they do have a few purely vegan options.  Thanks for video

  38. Gabriel Solis on September 16, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Thank you for sharing your PCT nutrition hacks! 🙂 Extremely helpful! I’m vegetarian, and am looking for something other than your typical processed sugar bomb hiking diet. My only concern is the high price on some of these items. What did you typically spend per month on your thru hike?

  39. deuce fiji on September 16, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Not to come off rude or anything but you chose a lot of junk food and processed foods you should definitely start pack more fresh fruits and vegetables, ik you want the conveniency but for over all aspect of a healthy meal or snack, also just cause something is grown organic don’t necessarily mean it’s more nutritional but that’s something else, but eating more of the raw foods will give you energy just because those food still contain there natural enzymes that actually help your body absorb the nutritious you want to cut down more on the processed food…. but that was my personal preference

  40. Laura Green on September 16, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    So. Much. Packaging.

  41. PBJTime on September 16, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    This is awesome! I just commented on your gear review vid and didn’t see this yet. Thanks so much for the info!

  42. King Luey on September 16, 2019 at 7:15 pm

  43. Nathan Peterson on September 16, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    Im sure you get this alot, but I enjoy your style, all of it. Thanks for sharin

  44. Onie Thomas on September 16, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Loved this. Being Vegan it gets hard choosing things to eat on the go so this video was immensely helpful.

  45. Laplumetrotteuse tv on September 16, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Hey thank you for this video ! just a question I was wondering, with the avocado and the principle of carrying our rubbish out, do you know if it is tolerated to leave avocado skin and stone ?

  46. Jordan Ross on September 16, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Loved this, thank you!

  47. Jackie Horn on September 16, 2019 at 7:17 pm

    Great video, I have gone WFPB, and due to food addiction issues as soon as I eat foods I should not eat, I have a difficult time going back to healthy. So, I will be doing mail in resupplies. That restaurant in Idylwild sounds fantastic. If you ran into other restaurants that were vegan friendly, and what town you found them in, would be great to know. Thanks, really enjoyed watching your PCT videos.

    Are the gummies vegan? I thought gummies usually have gelatin in them.

  50. Kane Bell on September 16, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Cool face.
