When it comes to the outdoors and “stash and carry” items for munching, sometimes pure simplicity is the only answer.  Grapes, strawberries, cherries, apples, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or cubes of melon.  When you turn to nature for your menu, the possibilities are quick, nutritional and endless.
