Appetizing, energizing and easy-to-prepare recipes to enjoy on the go.

These outstanding recipes meet the needs of wilderness and camping enthusiasts and provide tasty homemade meals. Trail food made by combining wholesome foods dried at home with nutritious store-bought ingredients is more economical than commercially prepared packaged food, and it can be customized to suit individual tastes and to avoid preservatives.

This wide array of recipes, from the everyday to the gourmet, includes breakfasts, main courses, side dishes, breads, high-energy snacks, desserts and hot and cold beverages. Many recipes are "just add water," and some require no cooking at all.

Recipes such as these are so good they could be enjoyed every day, not just on the trail:

Vanilla cinnamon French toast
Curried chicken and apples
Campfire pizzas
Cheese and herb skillet biscuits
Just-add-water hummus
Fudgy skillet brownies
Mexican coffee
Antiox berry shake

Created by a unique team with extensive camping and culinary experience, this will become the definitive book on trail food.

If you are going on a long backpacking thru-hike trip MEC foods are very expensive and do not have enough calories. Doing your own is a much better option.

First you buy your groceries. Then you dehydrate everything, including your meat and fish. Then you package it for specific meals. Then you add water and cook it. Easier to buy it ready-made at Mountain Equipment Co-op, and add water when needed.
