Don’t Leave Out Vegetables As You Shop for Food for Camping
Typical food for camping, such as macaroni, ramen noodles, and rice, is lightweight fuel for hikers but what about vitamins, minerals and fiber? What about fresh flavor? You don’t have to dream of vegetables on the trail; eat them in your one pot meals. Dried vegetables won’t add a lot of weight to your pack, but they will add a ton of flavor and nutritive value. Dehydrated beans are not only delicious, they are an excellent source of dietary fiber and protein as well as nutrients including iron, zinc, potassium and folate.
For food for camping trips for large groups, keep in mind that you can buy in bulk and measure out the right amount to feed everyone well. It is easy to make a hearty chili with dehydrated beans, tomato powder, dried onions, and dehydrated green peppers.
