Food for a 3 Day Trip

Post by Chew » Sun Aug 12, 2018 1:55 pm

I have a 3 day trip coming up where there wont be access to any resupply for 3 days.

Any ideas on what to take?

Dont want to carry loads, but looking for something tasty and filling

Not heavy, quick and easy to make. If you pop it in a pour and store and add some pre-cooked bacon, sausage or whatever, it's both tasty and filling. :-bd

couscous
noodles
pot noodles
pasta dishes
instant mash
rice packets
mug shots
Powdered milk + Muesli- add water to soak overnight to make bircher muesli
all of those are just add water, available in supermarkets and fairly lighweight

you can also get a dehydrator and just dehydrate your own foods

I'd agree with the mash...add almond flakes or crushed cashews and cut up some chorizo.

Porridge or müsli for brekkers. I mostly go for a müsli that can be enjoyed cold or warm/hot.
So basically a pre-made müsli, whole milk powder and some tsampa.

During the day I go for a mix of salty food and sweet stuff.
Nuts (coated, often macadamia), crisps (yes, crisps), saussage, dried meat, cheese, crackers, M&Ms, bars (easy and deli homemade), small tarts, dried fruits.

For supper it's pretty much what has already been posted, often followed by 50 g chocolate or something similar.

I really like Nissin's soba noodles, two packages are about 200 g, serve about 950 kcal and can be soaked in warm water for 1-2 h close to the body should you forget fuel for the stove or want to save more weight.

Hahah! We'll be eating at the pub(s). :)

And now, back on topic...if you're out in the boonies and it's hot, if you need chocolate, M&Ms are the way forward. Messy melted food is a faff. Jelly Tots are good too.

Up into Scotland without the bikes, so off-grid for a few days
Any ones to recommend?
Was there an offer code going at some point?

Will probably get a few of these, plus a few mash type things and supplement with meats/cheese.

Ohh I hadn't considered that before - Can you make that in the packet it comes in, so it doesn't need a pan?

Not the packet it comes in Mart but no need for a pan either ... just empty contents of packet into a 'pour and store' bag and take that with you. Boil water in mug, pour into the bag, a good ol' stir and eat. Dropping a couple of mini apple pies in is an added bonus :-bd

We've tried them all. Not mad on the mushroom or the dal ones.

The others are all good though.

Pour & store bags?

What are these? Is it just a new name for freezer/sandwich/gorp zip bags or are they different?

They come under a few brand names but are all the same. They're thicker than freezer bags and are designed to handle hot / boiling liquid, so you can rehydrate directly in them, then eat from them. They're also reuseable and will stand up.

They are very similar to a normal zip-lock bag but more heat proof and a bit tougher as they are designed to be used with hot food, but most importantly they have the shaped bottom like you get on commercial freeze-dried outdoor food so they will stand up on their own.

Edit, Stu beat me to it. And I buy mine is Sainsbury's despite living in the south :smile: they even have their own brand ones

Thanks for updating me. Something new to buy & try. It will make a nice change from buying a tent or tyre.
In France now, so will try to here.
