Food Tips for Backpackers

This text was originally published in February 03 2012. Produce a video to illustrate the text, so I decided to republish it. For this reason, some comments will appear with dates prior to the day of the new publication.

Venture out for long distances with a backpacking requires a good planning, including getting to eat. Browse take lightweight and easy food preparation as:

  • Soups and dehydrated foods;
  • Canned (without exaggeration due to the volume of garbage that you will need to bring with you);
  • Loaf of bread or toast;
  • Parmesan cheese;
  • Polenguinho processed cheese (choose which does not need refrigeration);
  • Powdered milk;
  • Instant coffee;
  • Cappuccino powder;
  • Sachets of sugar and salt found in snack bars;
  • Packaged cookies and energy bars;
  • Chocolates;
  • Sweet potatoes;
  • Granola, raisins, dried fruits like banana;
  • Chestnuts, peanuts;
  • Small portions of rice and beef jerky (obviously to be prepared at the camp);
  • Tuna or sardines in a can.

You can consume the heavier foods at the beginning of your adventure, leaving the lighter to be loaded in the bag when you are already more tired. Among all the foods mentioned, I think more practical packet soups that include carbohydrates, like pasta. If you’re going to walk for long distances, don’t exaggerate in canned, that can weigh heavily. Remember that you will also have to bring the waste produced back, including the empty cans and other packaging. It’s not nice to be in the middle of nature and find the waste produced by humans. Who uses the nature to have fun and venture must be the first to protect her.
