Backpacking across picturesque locations is every travelers’ dream. However, hiking with a full backpack can be exhausting, and packing the correct, most nutritious foods is an essential part of every journey.
One of the main essentials of preparing for a backpacking trip is the right amount of food. The amount of food that you bring along should always be more than you need. Ideally, you should pack food that coincides in a proportionate manner with your height, weight, and daily food intake requirements, and should be able to replenish your energy instantly after long hours outdoors.
Freeze dried fruits and vegetables are a great snack to bring out on the trail with you to ensure high levels of energy and nutrition. These foods are drained of excess moisture and retain most of the nutritional value found in their original counterparts. Furthermore, a large quantity of these foods can be placed in small bags, decreasing the amount of space that they take up.
Natierra® offers a wide variety of freeze dried fruits and vegetables, each with their own nutritional benefits. Not only do they offer a great option as a quick and easy snack while traveling, they can be added to trail mixes to add a punch of fruit flavor to a more traditional healthy snack food.
For breakfast, some of the more popular hiking and backpacking food options are dehydrated eggs, granola bars, dry cereal, powdered milk, and freeze-dried fruits.
For lunch, it would be a good idea to consume nutritious and filling foods like freeze dried fruits, energy bars, figs, and jerky.
Dinner is a time you can indulge a little by eating lavishly yet keeping the food light and wholesome. You can include foods such as freeze-dried and dehydrated packaged meals, where you just need to add some water. Make sure to check out Natierra®’s diverse selection of freeze dried fruits and vegetables that are sure to make your backpacking even more enjoyable.
