MOUNTAIN FOOD | Wild Camping Meal Ideas
Here’s a look at some of the foods I use when I’m out on a wild camp, bivi or exped. SUBSCRIBE Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BetterThanADaydream/ …

  • I've walked hundreds of miles on bread, cheese and eggs with coke and the occasional guinness for good measure it's all good! If you like a pot noodle you can take it out the plastic pot and carry it in a small bag to save on the junk. I load up heavily on energy gels and stuff like that to keep me going rather than those over priced camping food. It works for me 🙂

  • you get a fair few dehydrated meals out of Morrisons and aldi. also you can get dehydrated pudding like chocolate custard. also brown rice is great on hill only downside is cooking time.

  • Interesting video. I've not tried all of the dehydrated brands but my favourites, by far, are produced by Firepot in Dorset.

    I'd be interested in seeing what you might consider for lunch and daytime, during a backpacking adventure.

  • I normally make my own MREs… boiled potatoes, some rice, some bread slices and dried meat.. All packed in an aluminium foil container..!!! normally in mountain expeditions you are too tired to cook anything.. so with this, just take it out, heat it… and eat it

  • Quite an improvement on the standard pasta and rice, some instant mashed potato was easily the best meal I had while hiking in Scotland this summer. It doesn't compare well to home made mashed potateos (obviously), but it is so good for camping. Just boil a pot of water, add the powder and whatever sausage, sauce, or vegetable you see fit. The steaming hot bowl of happiness was such a delight after long, rainy days (which we had a lot of in Scotland). "Soul food" as my aunt calls it.
    I will be greatly interested in more videos about cooking in the outdoors, so please keep them coming. (:

  • For breakfasts I have found muslie (probs spelt wrong…) and protein-ated powder peanut butter (I think it's called PBprotein) or protein powder in a zip lock bag is really good as you just have to add water especially for vegans or not having to carry milk or settle for water or dried milk. 🙂

  • Freeze dried ones do not agree with my stomach. At all! I'd always seek out some real food after a day or two of eating a packet meal. Look up a company called wheybox, they do a chocolate whey powder that you can use to bake peanut butter chocolate oat cakes which are THE BEST for snacking on. I have no recipe, I just throw things in a bowl and pray. Usually works!

  • with super noodles put them in a pour and store bag with some cous cous add boiling water place in an insulated sleve, leave for 5 minuets then eat. no washing of pans

  • Tried the Katadyn brand of breakfast: quite expensive and not tasty at all. (Just looked it up, its Trek ‘n Eat.) Here in The Netherlands we’re blessed to have our own brand of outdoor food and they make the best breakfast I’ve tried so far. (I hate dishwashing and a good start of the day also means a well filled belly for me.) So for breakfast: Adventure Food, Expeditie Ontbijt (‘Expedition Breakfast)! It’s oatmeal, dried apple, dried raisins and some other stuff like palm oil. Since I eat oatmeal for breakfast at home every day, I’m very used to it and this one is delicious!

    In short, my day of food would look a bit like this:
    Breakfast: Adventure Food Expeditie Ontbijt
    In-between: mixed nuts and/or raisins
    Lunch: € 0,40 per package noodles in chicken flavour (small square packages, easy and cheap!). The beef flavour just doesn’t do it for me
    In-between: mixed nuts and/or raisins and/or any cheap but filling ‘energy bar’ or granola bar and/or some bar of (cheap) chocolate
    Dinner: any dehydrated ready-made dinner from an outdoor food brand. Since I’m from The Netherlands, Adventure Food comes to mind

    That’s it! This is what works for me. With a used 100 grams gas canister, this has allowed me to cycle around the Cairngorms for about or just over a week while camping in the wild. With a few nights in youth hostels (to dry up and avoid a Scottish breeze of 60 miles per hour) I’ve managed to live like this for 2 weeks!

  • Look what we found are difficult to source BUT goes great with microwave rice which is already cooked (one bag shared with 2 people) so can do a boil in the pan or heat up in the pan as one meal. have had people complain that you are carrying water but the fact is when you get to your destination so you have to carry water anyway so for short trips it's not that much of a problem, wouldn't recommend them for long trips though. Also flavours, sour, sweet, fat, salt, meat, carbs, surprising when you exercise you crave all those things so balance you larder with different flavours. Another point is it can be difficult to obtain protein on hikes as most of it comes in form of meat based meals BUT protein shakes (body builders supplements) are a good substitute and EVEN make you own protein bars, the last ones I made were 800 calories per bar, mainly the ground almond and almond oil used for bonding it all together. The protein bars were bloody nice but no good for my diet. In addition to as mentioned in the video ready cooked meals you can also take frozen ready cooked meals that can last 2 or 3 days (or longer) depending on the weather.
