Before venturing upon your next great adventure into the wilds
you may wish to do some organizing and testing/research and find
some tasty lightweight foods to take along to keep the weight
down to a minimum ,whether you are planning a canoeing/kayaking
or bike hike or just a trek to your favourite special place ,
there is no need to carry unneeded excess weight and packaging.
There are plenty of options available and before deciding upon
certain types it is best to try the tastes as some lightweight
foods can be very ordinary in taste especially in bulk amounts,a
little bit is ok but too much can be .........yuk! So taste and
try before you decide to take these foods along,otherwise this
is a good food source to have on-the-go without cooking or even
as a snack in the boat or on top of that mountain.
Dehydrated foods have been around for a long time and can be
easily found in the local supermarket ; things like
carrots,peas,beans,potatoes; you could even have some in your
cupboard at home.
Versatile dried fruits are my favourites,such
as,raisins,dates,apricots,sultanas,and dried apples are the
Premade packaged meals can be a useful take along and so can
vacuum sealed/cooked fish [salmon etc ] , just be kind with the
Nuts are great ; almonds,peanuts and best of all cashews.
Beef jerky is really yum and addictive and you can get a hot
variety as well.So make sure you have plenty of water handy if
you decide you want to burn your faced off !
Noodles are an old favourite although the styrene containers are
a worry to dispose of in the middle of nowhere,because you
cannot just leave this rubbish behind anywhere.
Powdered milk is an aquired taste for that caffeine hit or cup
of tea; although if weight is not a problem, long life milk is
handy and comes in skim as well. Powdered orange and sports
drinks can add a change too.
Freeze dried foods can be helpful and could be freeze dried
chicken , lasagna , corn and pasta and come in good sturdy
Health food shops stock a massive selection of dried foods and
muesli bars and other interesting bars of
peanuts/nuts/honey/carob etc;that pack well in your backpack.
Specialty items are more difficult to find at particular
stockists that carry army type foods like dried eggs and things
that are designed to last a long time and take little space and
can get wet if a canoe/camping adventure is planned.
Storage of these items is very important and sturdy good quality
re-sealable plastic bags are ideal as they can be recycled and
used again and will keep the rubbish to an absolute minimum; the
food can be sorted into day lots or groups and a master bag can
keep them together and catch any possible spillage.Plastic bags
can be packed into nooks and crannies to maximise space with no
hard or sharp edges to worry about in your backpack.Before
packing ;get rid of any surplus packaging so you don't carry
rubbish all over the countryside Hoping you can find this
article of use and happy camping!.
