Paleo canoe trip

Hi there, I'm starting to plan my first canoe trip of 2010 and I'm wanting to stay as Paleo as possible. Snacks I'm not to worried about, it's my actual meals. Most of the pre-packaged meals at the outfitters are potatoes this pasta that. I'll be gone for about four days and wish to pack as light as I can, any suggestions?

Re: Paleo canoe trip

Yes I do, most of the meals I've used in the past have been the type where you just add boiling water and wait 10 minutes and you have a meal ready to go. Something like this...

The problem I have is keeping veggies, and I've never seen meals like the one above that would fit the Paleo lifestyle. The are so full of sodium and sugar and a bunch of stuff I can't spell or pronouce : )

Re: Paleo canoe trip

On my most recent back packing trip I took Larabars, lots of packets of tuna and salmon with skin and bones, (the skin has more fat). Also, tons of nuts and dried fruit, and veggies, you may need to go to a store that has bulk dried fruit and nuts.

Jerky and dried veggies boiled with water should make a pretty good soup.

You may be able to carry some whole fruits and veggies depending on space and weight restrictions.

You can also google pemmican for some recipes.
