For any outdoor adventure, it is essential to pack foods high in protein to stay energized. As Addy and her campmates struggle to survive a terrain of fire and smoke in Paradise on Fire, they rely on coconut granola bars in their backpacks to refuel. Protein bars are easy, delicious, and endlessly customizable. Book club members can try their hand at creating their own custom bars and having a tasting at their meeting.
Or consider taking your book club outside underneath the stars and enjoy making s’mores around a fire. Remember to practice fire safety, of course!
