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.

Processed Foods Are Part of a Healthy Diet!

I would challenge us to rethink our negativity towards processed food and begin asking questions such as “what is the purpose of the processing”, “how is the processing impacting shelf life”, and “what has been added because of the processing”. If a food is processed in such a way that artificial flavors, such as MSG, are needed for taste, or emulsifiers are needed for shelf life, perhaps we should reduce those from our diet and start emphasizing foods that are preserved in a way, like freeze drying, to keep it as natural as possible. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again - let’s make food shelf stable by removing what causes food to go bad (oxygen, moisture) rather than adding preservatives into food.

The Health Benefits of Game Meat

Wild game satisfies our hunger needs, daily energy levels and stabilize our hormones \effectively because of their unique blend of nutrients. Game meats are rich in essential amino acids that are not made in the body and therefore necessary for healthy muscle function and energy production. This combination is ideal for someone with a hectic day or an adventurer on a physically taxing outdoor excursion and a key reason why we include them in our freeze dried meals!
