Good food can be lightweight, convenient and delicious! You’ve spent a long day hiking, climbing or paddling. You need a dinner that will give you the energy to do it all again tomorrow. Wouldn’t it be nice if it could taste great and be ready in minutes? Feast on Adventure proves that good food can be lightweight, convenient, and delicious.
The field-tested recipes in this book are motivated by my family’s dietary restrictions. Our quest for delicious, flavourful meals that are portable, low-mess, and free of undesirable ingredients led me to develop my own process of converting conventional recipes into single-serving backpacking dishes using freeze-dried, dehydrated, and instant foods. These trail meals are light, quick to rehydrate, and shelf-stable.
Feast on Adventure guides you through the world of freeze-dried, dehydrated, and instant foods with over forty diverse backcountry recipes. You’ll also learn how to turn your own family favourites into non-perishable camping meals. You’ll be able to customize any trail meal to meet your personal needs, managing dietary restrictions, such as allergies, intolerances, and preferences.
