In general, food-stuffs should be varied enough so that eating is a joy, quick to cook (no "simmer for an hour" things) and produce minimal trash. Repackaging may be a good idea in some cases.


I am personally not a fan of elaborate camp breakfasts. There are options involving things like dehydrated eggs, bisquick, etc. ... but, I'd usually rather get going early and enjoy the natural morning light.

  • granola bar
  • dried fruit
  • fresh fruit
    fricken' heavy, use early
  • instant oatmeal
    peaches&cream is my "favorite" ... a term I use loosely. requires cooking AND cleaning.
  • hot tea
    requires cooking, no cleaning.


I'd usually stop for a proper "lunch" if there is a good spot to do it: no bug issues, some kind of interesting view or otherwise good resting point. When this isn't possible, I'm more likely to graze on food during water/photo breaks.

  • trail mix
    • chocolate
      melting issues
    • nuts (almonds, cashews)
    • dried fruit (raisins, craisins, banana chips, other)
  • crackers
  • cookies
  • hard candy
    certs, altoids, runts, etc.
  • jerky
  • pretzels, tortilla chips
    pre-crushed to save space

Additional foods with potential spoilage issues

  • hard salami / pepperoni
  • cheese
  • tortillas/pitas/bagels
  • bread


I make it a goal that every evening includes a meal that I'm looking forward to. This is why you won't see "ramen" in my list.

  • freeze-dried meal things
    pros: taste amazing, decent variety, very filling, and are designed to be pretty complete nutritionally, no cleaning necessary (eat-in-bag)
    cons: a little pricy ($5-$7 each), a little bulky, unsure about availability in Peru
  • dried soups
  • pasta w/ red sauce
  • mac&cheese
  • cous-cous


  • fresh veggies
    like fresh fruit, fricken' heavy, use early
  • dehydrated veggies (e.g., mushrooms)
  • raisins
  • bouillon cubes
  • random lightweight spices
    little packets of spice I have saved from various places. packages burnable.


  • gatorade
  • powdered ice-tea
