backpacking trail food doesn’t have to taste bad


You read that right.

And you can even do low FODMAPS while backpacking or hiking. Hard to google for those specific things but it can be done!

We did a combination of backpacking and car camping, so we had the advantage of using the cooler.

It’s also entirely possible to keep things funny. I like to draw pictures, such as Mario for the ‘Italian’ night of pepperoni, noodles, bell peppers and spices. Labels for the meal and the day are also helpful. Bags can be reused for trash or human refuse.
