I like to use the Nalgene bottles or something similar to package these:



or this:



Break down the measurements and mark on the bottles for single servings.

Carry some of this or something similar.




I like the rice packages since there is alot of variety and all you have to do is boil water. Your mind is the only limit to the variety of meals you can make with this stuff.

Here is a pic of my 5 day camping kitchen and food. I did the breakfast and dinners in camp while snacking or grabbing some fast food on the road for lunch.



Stove gas goes into the cookpot which goes into my tupperware dinner plate with a chunk of the scrubber sponge thrown in.
(MSR Pocket Rocket Stove in the red triangle box)



All packed up and ready to stash into the Jesse's.

The chicken in a can is pretty good stuff. When my wife left town and I had to fend for myself, I grabbed a can of it, and mixed it in with a little barbeque sauce, warmed it up and put it on hamburger buns. Could be easily done on the road using Oldrice's baggie cooking method and a Jetboil stove.

It's important to eat balanced meals when on the road. Here's breakfast on an overnight trip to the Talladega NF last weekend, Those jalapeno vienna sausages are considered mexican food in Alabama.




I keep a case of MRE's on hand, opening an MRE is better than Christmas. They can be quite entertaining in the woods on solo trips. You get things like pan coated chocolate discs...which is army talk for M&M's.

It is a balanced meal and tastes pretty good, but this entree kept me awake a good bit of the night on a solo trip into the forest primival, it wasn't indigestion, something about it reminded me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacres and I had trouble getting to sleep.

Here's the best thing about MRE's

Chicken ala king used to be the best kept secret in MRE's.

Great stuff and a great thread, really.

I couldn't count the number of times I'd made a meal from potted meat and Saltines.

+1 on the Lipton Pasta Sides!



Cheap, easy to make, tastes great and is quite filling too. You must also stuff one of those pans of Hawaiian bread in your jacket too. Once the pasta is done, the bread and pasta totally fill you up.

There's more of these in the same isle at the market too. Tobasco and ...anything. Tortillas and a Jetboil, man can survive quite well thankyouverymuch.

So far, I have been pretty happy on over-nighters with things I can fix by just adding hot water from my Jetboil. I hate clean up. Hot Cocoa powder, instant oatmeal, stuff like that. Otherwise I like stuff that doesn't need cooking...but I am trying to be pretty minimalist.

Then again, most roadside burgers are about 2 meals worth of food for me.

Wasn't too long ago that a Japanese woman was followed on ADV. She had ridden around the world on her own. 200 cc bike I believe. It was a great thread. She was making do on a small amount of $ per day (can't remember exactly what, but under 10 bucks). Her budget included food and gas, etc. I remember her name was Maki.

Guess the point is that cooking your own meals is alot less expensive than stopping at restaurants and, no doubt, healthier too.

Wonder how everything went for her. She was cool and did all her own wrenching.

Sorry, off topic a bit.

+1. C'mon you guys. I don't want to punish you with my kipper snack and noodle dish recipe-yuck. It'll sustain life, but I know you all have something better than that!.

One of the best things to do before heading off for any trip that requires you to carry what you'll eat is to make a meal plan. I know it sounds pretty dull but that way you can prepare meals ahead of time to save room in your bags and weight from having to carry prep gear.

I usually use combinations of ziploc bags to make meals. It's really just like the sidekicks or MREs you guys are talking about but it allows a bit of variety and personal choice. Anything that will expire just throw in the freezer ahead of time and let it thaw as you go, it's an easy way to keep fresh eggs/omelettes a little longer than normal.

Just seperate wet from dry ingredients (obviously), things that get cooked or added at different times, etc as necessary.

I love cornbread when I'm hiking, it tastes great, easy to share, easy to save for snacks too, and is dead simple for cooking. Having fresh bread really makes the day for me.

I've always found that backpacker.com has great quick meal ideas, focused on ease of prep, and low weight and good taste.
