Food-packing tips for your next adventure
Whether you’re preparing for a week of camping or a short day hike, you’ll want to make sure you have the essentials. Check out these recommendations from EatRight.org:
Consider the variables:
How long will you be gone? What will the temperatures be like? Hot weather, for example, will not only mean you’ll need extra fluids, but could cause certain snacks to melt. Will you need utensils? Any type of tool to access the food, such as a can opener?
Opt for non-perishables:
While you can pack perishables if you have a cooler or ice pack, this added weight makes lightweight snacks like trail mix, nuts, energy chews, jerky and granola a no-brainer.
