I'm not a big breakfast person at home, and getting the stove and pots out to make breakfast is about the last thing I want to do after waking up in the wilderness. But when you're going to be backpacking all day, you need some calories, so breakfast wraps are my happy me...

This really is the perfect breakfast meal for those that cant get enough coffee in the morning. You make your coffee first and make a little extra, and then you add that to your oatmeal, plus a few other ingredients to sweeten things up, and it's the perfect coffee flavor...

This is fairly basic but also very tasty. I know a lot of people don't prefer a huge breakfast in the morning, or just prefer something cold, because it's easier to pack up and go rather than take the time to make something hot. But I like a big, calorie dense breakfast t...

This is without a doubt one of my absolute favorite backpacking recipes. And if you rehydrate the beans and salsa beforehand without cooking, it's also a really quick meal that doesn't require any cooking! (though you can certainly heat them up if you like). I've got reci...

Lots of calories and lots of flavor without much weight. Dehydrated refried beans are an excellent trail food and can be mixed with all kinds of great things. I have another recipe for dehydrated salsa that goes really well with this one in all kinds of different ways. Ch...

You can always go to the store and pick up some commercial salsa to dehydrate, or even buy salsa that's been dehydrated for you, but I really prefer making my own salsa and then dehydrating it. Home made salsa has a great flavor, and this way you know exactly what you're ...

Pizza is great comfort food, but not so easy to prepare when all you've got to work with is a minimalist little camping stove. Tortilla shells don't solve the tiny little stove problem, but they do solve the dough problem, and with a little ingenuity getting them heated t...

This is the kind of recipe where you just dump your bag of dry ingredients in your boiling water and in a couple of minutes dinner is ready. Easy, fast and really ideal as something hot after a long day of backpacking. Just a note, the powdered coconut milk can be a li...

It's hard to do better than something like freshly caught fish after a long day of hauling a backpack around. You don't have to carry the fish, for one, just the pole and a few ingredients. You can also get quite a meal going if you catch a few of them. I wont cover an...

This comes together fairly quickly and is the perfect hot meal after a long day, especially when the temperature is low. And just like any good chili, you can add all kinds of things to it beyond the ingredients listed here. Just about any dehydrated veggie will go wel...
