Food for the Day

I get my day’s breakfast and trail food out first thing so I don’t forget to unpack it before I break camp and put everything in my backpack.

Today’s breakfast and trail food are:

  • Breakfast. a cup of hot chocolate and a cup of tea; dehydrated biscuits and gravy. (Alternatives are dehydrated breakfast hash or Oats).
  • Trail Snacks. Two handfuls of almond and raisins, two mini Snickers bars, and a couple of rashers of pre-cooked bacon.
  • Lunch. A sachet of tuna, noodles, and a cup of tea.

The only items missing above are my evening hot drink and my evening meal, which I won’t get out until I’ve set up camp in the evening. My evening drink is usually hot chocolate (Cadbury’s of course), and my evening meal is whatever my current favorite dehydrated meal is. On my favorites list right now are:

  • Chicken and dumplings,
  • chili mac with beef,
  • teriyaki chicken,
  • beef stroganoff,
  • lasagna with meat sauce,
  • spaghetti with meat sauce, and
  • beef stew.

My total food for a day weighs in at around 1½-2lbs.
