The tip today is for those who love camping and hiking but always end up in doubt of what to take to eat. So, I prepared this list of food for camps and trails with only non-perishable items that do not need cooking. Of course, there are several other options if you are taking a stove to cook, but for shorter trips I find it more practical not to cook.
These tips are great for those who will go wild camping, hike all day without having access to establishments or even for those who want to save money with restaurants on the trips. So let’s check the list?
Dried fruits / raisins
Dried fruits / raisins are an excellent source of energy and super practical to carry. More than enough reason to add camping and trail food to your list. But don’t stop there: another advantage is the huge variety of options. Each with a particularity in nutrients.
Among them are:
dehydrated plum, rich in fiber
Raisin, rich in potassium
Banana raisin, also rich in potassium and carbohydrate
Dehydrated apricot, rich in vitamins and rich in a vast amount of nutrients.
Oilseeds (Chestnuts, almonds and walnuts)
Chestnuts are also super practical and are also rich in vitamins, antioxidants, potassium and good fats.
Making a mix with up to 3 types of them is ideal to obtain a large load of nutrients. The options are also many and although they have similar functions, one ends up being better for something than the other and vice versa.
Among them are: Brazil nuts, cashew nuts, almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, walnuts and macadamia nuts.
But before consuming attention: research well on the right amount of daily consumption for each one and choose up to a maximum of 3 daily types. Although their nutrients are excellent, when consumed in excess they become harmful.
Salami is a great option because in addition to being rich in proteins, it is not perishable, it has a long durability time and can stay at room temperature. I think it is one of the best options among these foods for camping and hiking because it is one of the few non-perishable protein alternatives that does not need to be cooked.
However, it is important to remember that it is classified as a sausage, there is a lot of negative information about this type of food.
Parmesan is another option that adapts well to ambient temperatures, as long as you go to a cool place. If you are going to get hot, forget about this item because it is better not to take the risk.
Although it is a yellow cheese, it is relatively healthy (if not consumed in excess). Parmesan is rich in protein and calcium.
