Keeping in up in the backcountry

Anybody have any shopping recommendations or favorite recipes when they're out camping? I'm thinking about prepping some foil packets the day before and am looking to try out some new combos.

Re: Keeping in up in the backcountry

I bet you actually eat cleaner especially if you dont pack junk food.

grass fed ground beef

You can cook all this in a camping skillet or in heavy foil sitting on the coals. We normally break our diet when temptation is present and when you dont even pack crap food, you dont have a way to reach in the fridge and grab a bad snack.

Re: Keeping in up in the backcountry

How long do you plan on being out?

For weekenders, many fresh food products will keep in your pack depending on the temperature. Additionally, cured, non-refrigerated meats (think summer sausage) will keep as long as they are not opened (friend's wife shipped them to Afghanistan).

If you are going to be out for longer than a few days, think of canned (foiled) fish/chicken, dehydrated fruits/veg, and bulk grain (I really like quinoa).

Be carefully with your food/trash especially if you are in bear country.

Re: Keeping in up in the backcountry

oatmeal and protein powder in a ziplock bag make a good breakfast.

nuts, dried fruit, dark chocolate, jerky.

i also highly recommend Wilderness Athlete products...
