Freeze-Dried Food For Backpacking

best food for backpacking trips

"There’s nothing more satisfying than sitting down for lunch deep in the backcountry and seeing huge chunks of real fresh food."

Review from Bailey, Zesty Zoodles

When was the last time you checked the nutrition and calorie content of the meals you eat to fuel you in the backcountry? If you haven't lately, take a moment to review what you see in the nutrition panel. 

No matter if you are planning the ultimate get-away weekend or preparing for the thru-hike of a lifetime, eating well in the backcountry is SO important to keeping your body in prime shape. When putting in a full day of strenuous exercise, make sure the food you eat to refuel your body is nutritious and calorie rich, delicious, and easily portable!

A common complaint of backpackers is lack of fresh fruits and veggies, and it's no wonder when so many meals out there focus on carbs and starches rather than on produce. This is why all of Bushka's meals contain large chunks of fruits and veggies! As backpackers ourselves, we know how important both physically and mentally a good, filling meal can be. All of our freeze-dried meals have been field tested out on the trails to ensure they will keep you full and satisfied!

Whether this is your first backpacking trip or you are a seasoned wilderness adventurer, wherever your journey takes you, bring Bushka freeze-dried meals with you.

How to Make the Best Coffee in the Backcountry

I only have three requirements when I’m making coffee in the backcountry: 1) the coffee must taste great (duh); 2) the coffee can’t have a gritty feeling; and 3) cleanup must be fast and simple. Now, as a self-proclaimed coffee addict, I’ll admit that criteria #1 completely depends on the quality and freshness of the coffee beans and what your taste for coffee is. I like a black mug of joe from medium to light roasted beans.
