Ten Best Backpacking FoodsWritten by Steve Gillman
Continued from page 1
5. Ramen noodles. When you need a hot meal fast, there isn't much that's better.
6. Instant coffee. A necessity for caffeine addicts, and it's good to have a stimulant available for emergencies.
7. Wild edible berries. Learn to identify a few, and you'll have a nutricious excuse for a break along trail.
8. Instant sports drinks. Pour a little in your water bottle and shake. Replacing electrolytes doesn't get more convenient.
9. Instant refried beans. When you want sustained energy, eat beans.
10. Your favorites. Having your favorite foods can help salvage a rainy backpacking trip spent in tent.
Always consider nature of trip when you choose your backpacking food. Hot meals are much more important in cold climates, and convenience is king, if you want to make miles. A bottle of rum might even be appropriate, if it's a trip wih friends.
