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.

Park Prescriptions. Yeah, It’s A Thing!

Here’s something I bet you never thought you’d hear from a doctor, “I’m writing you a prescription for a trip to the park.” Wait, what? Is this the adult version of that recurring daydream from elementary school where recess is the only class of the day and pizza is the only thing served by the lunch ladies? Nope, it’s not a dream, Park Prescriptions are a very real thing that began with a pilot program in San Francisco parks in 2012 and has evolved to include over 100 programs across the United States.
