Hiking Food

Food is the main energy source for both exercise and maintaining body temperature, it is important to eat often and wisely when hiking, particularly on extended or physically demanding trips. Hiking food and its preparation also contributes significantly to morale, providing a pleasant social end to a physically hard day. Food can add considerably to the weight of your pack on overnight or multi day hikes which significantly impact your level of enjoyment. Here’s a few suggestions to help you plan your next hiking meal.
