Backpacking Simple Food Ideas

Here are some very simple i eas for dehydrated and light-weight


1) Any packaged inner mix from the grocery and packed in ziploc

baggies ie, Macaroni & Cheese, Rice-a-Roni, Broccoli and Cheese, etc

There are tons of these things available to ay. If they call for milk,

then the boys can carry powdere milk in baggies. Margarine will

travel well, an since they will be working har , the extra fat might be


2) Instant oatmeal an instant grits and bagels are great for breakfast.

Again, powdere milk can be used with these. Get some of the new

Fantastic Foods hot cereal mixes--they are warm an filling.

3) Dehydrated vegetables an full meals can be found in camping

stores. A dried peas to a box of mac & cheese, for instance

4) Try Ramen noo le soups, or any of those "soup in a cup"s (that can

be packaged in baggies so they take up less room).

5) Dehydrated bean flakes that mix up almost instantly with water are

available in HFS. Mix these with some cooke minute rice and put in a

tortilla. Yum! Flavor them with onion, garlic, cumin powders.

6) Cheese backpacks well. Again, the fat may not be so bad if they are

hiking all ay. An if it's col , then the fat is almost necessary to

help them stay warm. (You need a lot more calories when it's col .)

A a hunk to any soup, pasta, rice, or dehydrated veggies you're


7) Pasta, pasta, pasta. Top it with sauces made from the dry package

mixes. A lot of these are tasty. High in so ium and preservatives

sometimes, but for a couple of meals they won't hurt you.

8) Instant mashed potatoes that can be mixed with the powdere milk

or water only. Make up an instant gravy to go top.

9) Dried fruit can be cooke in some water an put on top of a piece of

angel food cake for dessert. (Hey, the cake might get crushed a little,

but it is lightweight!) A some cinnamon an Tang (in lieu of orange

juice)an you approximate a Cooking Light recipe.

10) The dry veggie burger mixes would make a great meal. Most of

them make up with water only an many are quite tasty.
