Eating on the Trail - A Guide to Packing Food For a Camping Trip

What should you bring with you to eat if you're going on a hike or taking a camping trip? Well, it's good you're asking because certain foods cater much more to the outdoors life, and I happen to know what they are. Here's the lowdown.

One of the ideal foods to bring on the trail is dried fruit. Some people love it; some hate it. It's great because it won't go bad as fast as normal fruit and it's packed full of vitamins and other good energizing stuff. If you do insist on bringing fresh fruit, then you'd be well advised to bring harder things like apples. If you bring soft fruit it'll probably turn to mush before you get to the top of the mountain.

Dried Fruit

For a different kind of snack I'd think about peanut butter crackers or some sort of dry, hard food like that. Like dried fruit it will last longer than most foods, and it will also give you your much needed power while you're out in the wild.

Cut up some raw vegetables and stick them in Ziploc bags to eat while you're sitting around the fire or on a big boulder. While you're taking a break, the vegetables will still your hunger for a bit. They are, of course, healthy too.

Campers really need to think about what kind of food they want to take with them before the last second. If you don't bring the right things, it could potentially ruin an otherwise fun weekend. There's nothing like a gnawing hunger to really take your mind off of the beauty of being outdoors.
