The Boggess brothers are lifetime adventurers and credit their parents for teaching them how to craft delicious meals and snacks with real foods to fuel their wanderlust. This is why Jeff packed natural nut butters, mixed nuts, honey and dried fruits when he decided to embark on his epic 8,900 mile bike tour from Germany to California, by way of Europe, Northern Africa and the United States. What about that body of water in between called the Atlantic, you ask? Well, keeping with the 'on the surface' approach of the trip, Jeff sailed the Atlantic as crew on a 46' catch, going from the Canary Islands to Martinique in the Caribbean, over 26 days. Along the way, he found that these energizing snacks were packaged in heavy jars or inconvenient containers that took up precious space in his small bike panniers.
