Primal Kitchen, which sets consumers up to achieve "new heights of wellness and vitality through real-food eating," according to its website, specializes in that whole keto/paleo thing. I'm tempted to try it, if only because it will certainly make me healthy without needing to exercise.

Mediterranean diets are known for healthy ingredients like olive oil, fresh vegetables, and lean protein.

Olive oil and chickpeas are the stars of this meal — both of which you probably already have on hand. Personally, I’m never without a can of chickpeas in my pantry. There are endless ways to turn them into a meal, from tossing them into salads to smashing them onto toast. But my absolute favorite is perhaps the most overlooked — and that’s braising! It’s easy, it’s hands-off and it’s totally transformative.

There were a lot of highlights on our first camping trip: Great scenery, challenging hikes, a tent that filled with bugs after a tent flap was left open, the Wes Craven-worthy screaming in the dead of night when a spider (allegedly) crawled across someone’s arm. My personal favorite, however, was the pie. I wasn’t sure how good I would be at camping or at cooking over a fire. But when I served up a variation on our favorite cobbler, fireside, at the end of a long day of hiking, the genuine delight I got in return was enough to keep me coming back.

With the unofficial opener of the grilling season past us, we are ready once again to get serious about the practice of dinner — and maybe breakfast, lunch or happy hour — spent in the great and glorious outdoors, either dining alfresco or cooking that way.
