Paleo camping foods?

Okay, I know I should be hunting down my own meat and eating wild plants when camping if I was REALLY serious about paleo...

But that's not an option for my next trip. I've been doing paleo for about 3 1/2 months now (and lost close to 40 lbs), and my wife is now doing it as well -- and seeing great results with less joint pain. We are going to some remote cabins you have to hike into up in the mountains, and there is no cooking in the morning (we can cook the rest of the time).

Any good idea for quick paleo-friendly foods that don't need refrigeration? The tastier the better. We can cook/prepare in advance, but can't order stuff over the internet, as we live in Thailand. Aside from the obvious fruit and nuts, and maybe jerky, any additional ideas appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

-Mark

Re: Paleo camping foods?

Besides the fruit, nuts, and jerky, I pre-cook hard-boiled eggs and put them in a Nalgene bottle so they don't get squished. Canned sardines or mackeral is also delicious if you have it avail there.

...and don't forget some dark chocolate for desert and Scotch for bedtime.

Re: Paleo camping foods?

I'm planning on making some pemmican before my next camping trip. Google pemmican recipes, there are tons out there.

Larabars are good http://www.larabar.com/ WFS. Although, they are probably a little on the high carb side for most. Also, some contain peanuts and/or cashews so just check out the ingredients.

Good idea on the pemmican. Any good recipes for snack bars?

+1 on tuna in a pouch.

The chicken in a pouch is also not so bad.

Re: Paleo camping foods?

I'm assuming that you don't have a dehydrator. Might be worth getting one if you plan on Paleo camping a lot. Dehydrated sweet potato and fruit leather come to mind. Otherwise you'll be carrying a lot of extra weight in the water content of fresh vegies and meat. I'm not sure where landjaeger fits in the Paleo spectrum but it's a great fatty sausage that keeps well unrefrigerated.

There's a reason why pasta and oatmeal are backpacking staples. Everything that I can think of from my camping trips are pretty much the antithesis of Paleo.

True. And the pre-packaged dehydrated foods/meals are even worse.

So we've got:

nuts
pemmican
bars (homemade or otherwise)
meat-in-a-pouch (as long as it is lean and not too many nasty ingredients)
boiled eggs in a Nalgene (how long will they last?)
hard sausage of some sort
jerky
dehydrated fruit

One great thing is that ALL of these would make great paleo travel foods / snack foods, so it seems worth getting this dialed in even if you're not camping.

Other ideas?
