Backpacking Food Options

For overnight backpacking trips, plan for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Avoid cans because they are too heavy. Also, avoid meals that require many ingredients, because of weight, and because it’s hard to pack.


Freeze-dried backpacking food is one of the lightest and easiest option for planning a meal. Trailtogo has a variety of Mountain House Gourmet Meals ready to eat, and all you have to do is add boiling water.  

There are a number of choices from Mountain House, including Lasagna, Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Fajita, Chicken Teriyaki. Here is the list of all Mountain House Gourmet meals available at discounted price. 

Mountain House also makes freeze-dried breakfast, and ice cream you can take to the trail and enjoy without worrying about making a meal.

Mountain House meals also save you money from going to grocery store, or worrying about a cooler, to carrying perishables or keeping food cold while out on the trail.

Latsly, it’s always a good idea to carrying a little extra food just in case.
