    Don't eat this!

    by sim1 Updated Jul 23, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Popular among hikers is this type of food: freeze-dried food. All you need to do is add some hot water, wait for a while, and your dinner is ready. They are available in several dishes, from rice with chicken to Chili con Carne. Sounds easy and rather good, doesn't it? Well.... don't believe it!!! They taste awfull! Only eatable when very hungry, hahaha, which you actually might be after a long hike ;-)

    I know this type of food is very practical when hiking, because it saves space in your backpack and weighs little. But I think the taste is too awfull to bear. The good news is that there are quite a few good alternatives available, that might be a bit heavier and longer to cook, but taste a 100% better. Take a look in your supermarket and think of anything that can be stored outside the fridge and keeps long, weighs little and is nutricious. You might be surprised in what you will find. I found several good tasting rice and pasta dishes. Soups are always good (especially for lunch). So don't settle for freeze-dried. Hahaha, life as a hiker doesn't mean eating horrible food. Enjoy, it's your vacation: bring good food!

    Freeze-dried foods..... eeks!

    They say there are bears around here, I never saw any, and maybe it better not to see any bear from too close, especially not a female during the spring if she have cubs.
