Healthy foods for 3 days?

9 posts in this topic

Ey guys. What are some healthy foods I can bring on a 3 day cabin trip? Friends of mine will bring a lot of unhealthy foods, and I don't want to be predisposed to eating stuff like that, any good ideas?

@Caterpillar Thanks! Funny, cause I'm already bringing walnuts and dark chocolate.

Lots of vegetables! Steam them up and serve with some eggs or fish and nuts and legumes if vegetarian :) It's delicious.


Feel your hearts embrace of this moment of existence, and your love will awaken in everything you perceive ❤️

lots of good ideas above already, few more tips. 

  • nut butters (in a small container)
  • any dried fruit (dense source of easily digested energy)
  • dried mushrooms 
  • flax crackers (good source of Omega 3 and Omega 6s), easy to make in high quantities
  • oat cookies, baked energy balls, energy gells ( you can find easy recipes for these online)
  • Electrolyte drinks to replenish lost sodium and potassium (make sure they are free from sweeteners such as asparteme). You can also carry a small bag of himalayan salt and add just a little bit to your morning drink. 
  • Dried Oats - you can  combine these with water and make a quick oatmeal before heading out in the morning
  • Honey - add to small bag or container. Very high source of glucose when you have little time and need some quick energy to keep you goinf

->>Do not stock up too much on heavy food like sausages and high protein food, it taxes your digestion and will make you sluggish. I see too many hikers focusing on high protein meals which is bullocks. Beef jerky will sit in your stomach for 4 hours draining more energy to digest it than providing. Leave the heavier meals towards the end of your hike to allow enough time for digestion.
