JULIE MOSIER partnered with her son to launch Food for the Sole, a business that creates high-quality packaged dehydrated backpacking foods. Based in Bend, Oregon, they lead a small team of outdoor-oriented employees in crafting small-batch meals with a focus on fresh vegetables.
"For the toll our bodies take on the trail, they deserve to be
replenished with healthy, high-energy food after a long day.
Getting started dehydrating your own backcountry meals can be
intimidating. Julie definitely takes the guesswork out of creating
your own delicious meals for the backcountry!"--Melissa Lieser,
Founder, Backpacker's Bistro
"Gone are the days of overly salted dehydrated slop on the trail. This complete, how-to manual guides you through the steps to create delicious easy to prepare meals both on the trail and off. With a focus on fresh ingredients, texture, and robust flavors Julie gives you the building blocks to prepare exactly the kind of foods you want after a long day of hiking."--Mandy Bland, Founder of Purple Rain Adventure Skirts, accomplished hiker
"Some hikers say they hike for the exploration, some for the freedom. I hike for the food, and Julie's recipes make me want to hit the trail for the next three months and eat my way through these meals."--Renee Patrick, Trail coordinator, Oregon Natural Desert Association
