What food to take on a hike - our layout and list of food on a hike

Almost every tourist who starts walking inhike, is faced with the question of what kind of food to take a hike. Because the more you take, the heavier the backpack, and the smaller, the more likely it is to remain hungry. It is clear that this optimum is different for everyone, but still I want to share our layout of the food with which we went to our first campaign on Altai. This layout was given to us by our friend, an experienced hike, but we remade it a bit for ourselves, as we eat more of it and love sweets.

Immediately I want to make a reservation, the layout is partially vegetarian, but this does not prevent her from using any person at all. Or as an option, remake it for yourself.

What food to take on a hike - the nuances

- Food on the hike is taken not quite the one weaccustomed to eating at home. The main criterion is weight. For example, instead of bread, you can take loaves of bread, instead of regular cheese, dried cheese or at least harder, instead of vegetables and fruits, dried vegetables and dried fruits. That is, preference is given to all dry, as it is easier.
- I advise everyone to recommend the mix of dry vegetables Italian (onions, carrots, parsley, celery), which is sometimes sold in supermarkets. On its basis, it is good to cook buckwheat or any soup.
- We do not take semolina and pasta, because it is the most useless food.
- Instead of Hercules, it is convenient to take Hercules muesli, because they are already with nuts and dried fruits, as well as with sugar. It remains only to add water, and, for example, powdered milk.
- As a rule, we do not take canned food with us because of their severity. In addition, the banks should ideally be carried away with them, and not burned, which is also not very convenient.
- It’s wise to take some spices with you,packed in plastic bottles from any vitamins or from film. I would also recommend not taking a metal bowl, but a plastic container with a lid, it is more versatile. You can always close something, well, and keep it comfortable with your hands, not hot.

- Porridge and all loose need to put in a fewplastic bags (pieces 3), otherwise then you will collect everything in a backpack. And even better, plastic bottles of 0.5 and 0.6 are suitable for this, or solid non-disposable garment bags, or even rag bags (in the sense of polyethylene, put them in a rag bag).
- If you go in a group and are going to cook together, then discuss the food list in advance so that the main part of you will coincide on the spot.
- Despite the fact that it is believed that nature requires a lot of calories, I eat a little less during a hike than at home. Since the computer can grind a lot of things and not notice.
- If the trip is short 3-5 days and not very difficult, then we usually do not think much about what kind of food to take on the hike and drag as much food as we want.
- To save time cooking food, porridge can besoak in advance. For example, if you leave buckwheat soaked with water for the night, then in the morning you can not cook it at all, heat it up a maximum. At the same time, gas / firewood is also saved.

Hiking food list

We have a basic balance of about 400 grams.food per person per day + optional snacks (extra sweet, squash caviar, fruit). We have enough of this, but we eat, respectively, not to hell, but in order to remain slightly hungry. If you eat meat, you can add another 100 grams of stew a day (you can remove something from the sweet, but you can leave it).

Here is an Excel file with our layout. To convert to the desired number of days, you just need to change the cell with the days. The column “per day, kg” does not mean real consumption per day, since today you eat buckwheat for the evening, and rice tomorrow. Similarly, with sweet and other positions.

Standard meals we have are:
- Morning rolled oats with dried fruit + tea / cocoa.
- In the afternoon, only snacks in the form of cookies, casinaks, chocolates, dried fruits, nuts with water or less often tea.
- In the evening, buckwheat / rice with dry vegetables or lentils / soybeans (or mushrooms, if found along the way) + cheese with bread + tea / cocoa (sometimes).

The calculation of the food in the campaign is as follows:
- Buckwheat / rice 80 grams at a time
- Hercules 50 grams at a time
- No more than half a chocolate / polkazinaka for snacks or tea.
- Alternating porridge supplements, not all at once. If dry vegetables, then without a loaf with cheese, or tea without sweet, and vice versa.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
