When camping, it helps to think light and carry light.
However, no matter how pretty the image is of a camp
fire with eggs and tasty bacon sizzling in the
background, plus hot coffee, reality bites. And reality
In order to make real this food camping image, you have
to carry to the camping trip all the cooking equipments
needed such as a cast iron oven, a cooler, as well as
ice to keep food fresh, etc.
The usual options therefore are frozen and dried meals
which can be rather expensive, often don't taste very appetizing, and are heavy on preservatives and artificial
There are a lot better options at your local grocery
store which provide healthier if not a lot tastier food
dishes. And they are not just instant noodles.
Here are some tips on choosing camping food that is
right for you.
Weigh in, weigh out -
Camping requires a lot of energy walking and
traversing trails and trees. So any trail snacks carried during
this time must – as much as possible – be light in
weight or at least tolerably heavy.
The cooking methods used most during camping trips are stoves
that involve micro cooking primarily used to boil water.
Usually any nourishment a camper would take in are foods
that are the dehydrated kind.
Cereal flakes like Cheerios is a good option. There are
also dehydrated foods and packaged cereals that only
need the addition of hot water so you can enjoy a warm
meal. Oatmeal is one of them, also cream of wheat.

portion the quantity you would be taking and eating.

Another good thing with this type of camping
food is that there is less trash left
Man does not live by bread alone, crackers are
good, too. If you want cheese with your
crackers, choose those that do not need to
be refrigerated. There are available ones in
the grocery. Or if you want to be tastily
creative, there is always easily-packed
pepperoni and salami.
Peanut butter could be placed in portable tubes.
Chocolate could also easily be packed and is
extremely tasty and emotionally filling,
especially during a difficult top climb.
However, if you prefer to experience a little
luxury - and don't mind carrying some heavy
stuff – pack in a can of liver pate,’
chicken chunks, ham, or tuna.
Prior to camping, make sure that you know just
how many days or weeks you'll be in camp and
calculate the quantity of regular meals and
snacks you might eat.
All in all, camp food is just like regular food. Minus
the usual amenities. it can taste good and
be healthy too.
