Martin answers:

It really depends on how long you are camping for. If more than a day or two or if you are hiking and doing a lot of physical activity this probably isn’t the best meal plan for you. You need to have enough food to provide you with plenty of protein and nutrients to stay in top physical condition; a lot of the time when camping people forget that they need more food to help overcome the extra physical activity they participate in. I would bring oatmeal for a morning food (it’s super easy to make over a fire or camp stove if you have a small pot and fills you up great) granola bars and trail mix for snacks during the day. Canned fruit and carrots are good but you will want more than beans to eat for dinner and bigger meals. Spaghetti is easy to make and rather filling, so is rice. Beans are good as a side dish but they do take a long time to cook (if they aren’t already in a can). Just make sure you get a variety that will keep you healthy, just like you would at home. :)

What food shall i take camping?

i’m going camping for a weekend, and will be hiking all day both days, i know i need to bring high calory foods but as i have never done an expedition before can somebody give a me a good list of food to bring?

Martin answers:

Are you going to be stopping and cooking or does it have to be ready to eat.
High calorie and high carbs will probably be the best option so things like baked potatoes with cheese, tuna, beans etc if you are able to put in fire. If not then you should really be taking with you tinned fish, packets of noodles, beans, chocolate, glucose sweets. Make sure you do have water with you as you will go through that.
Basically keep it simple, easy to cook, easy to digest and provide you with the extra you will need for the extra exercise.
