I have a trip coming up this weekend and I don’t like to leave food for last. In most cases I break food down by the day – so I don’t forget anything. For this trip I am planning by day and then by breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack. I also stick a couple more extra snacks in for the ‘just in case’ meals.
I do food as well by person, this way everyone gets what they want.
From the bottom up:
Bag of Mini Golden Oreos. Yes, unhealthy and that is OK. For snacking on over the trip.
Day 1’s food: Breakfast on the way to trailhead. Zinger drink mix for water, Bakers Breakfast Cookie for snack, Thai inspired noodle soup with 3-ounce package chicken and freeze-dried green beans, Baby sized Goldfish crackers and Lipton green tea drink mix for snack, Market Pasta from Packit Gourmet for dinner, herbal tea and chocolate.
Day 2: Java Juice and hot chocolate, Jamaican Peanut Porridge from Packit Gourmet for breakfast, Baker Breakfast Cookie and Zinger mix, lentil couscous salad for lunch, Baby Goldfish and Lipton green tea mix for snack, a new version of this baked ramen noodle bowl for dinner, herbal tea and chocolate.
Day 3: Java Juice and hot chocolate, banana maple oatmeal for breakfast (high protein/high fiber organic maple instant oatmeal from Costco mixed with crumbled freeze-dried bananas), Baker Breakfast Cookie and Zinger drink mix, lentil couscous salad for lunch (if it tastes great I will post the new recipe!), Baby Goldfish for snack.
Mylar bag of freeze-dried strawberries from Trader Joe’s for munching on as well.
Most likely I will add in fresh fruit at the grocery store along with fresh bread for the first dinner. I often do that.
