Meals prepared and dried at home are compact, lightweight and can be as delicious on the trail as at home, perfect for the backpacker.
Backpack Gourmet includes 150 recipes for hikers and campers with healthy and delicious meals to dehydrate and pack.
145 pages filled with casseroles, soups, stews, breakfasts, trail mixes and much more. Linda Frederick Yaffee
This fabulous guide to eating better, packing lighter and cleaning less will improve your camping and hiking experience 100%!
Includes equipment lists, tips on food storage at home and on the trail and water. Imagine ending a day's hike with Chicken Couscous Stew or Crab Fettuccini with Parsley Mint Sauce followed by Coconut Blondies for dessert in just three minutes flat! Or Orange Maple Granola and Hash Browns with Sausage and Eggs for breakfast by the time you've washed your face!
We've tried it and halved our pack weight plus the food was nutritious and tasty and lasted throughout the trip plus the next one several months later. Highly recommend!
