Camping Food: Easy & Warm Camping Meals.

Dehydrated/freeze-dried camping food is great for hiking, backpacking, or camping meals because you don't have to keep it cold in order to avoid spoiling.

While coolers/refrigerators can work well in some situations, ice or electricity isn't always available making dehydrated/freeze dried food very attractive. While detaching the water helps preserve camping food it also has another benefit...

Camping, backpacking, or hiking food that's freeze-dried or dehydrated can reduce weight by sixty to ninety percent. If you're carrying a backpack or another hiking gear by incorporating days worth of camping food and supplies this may make a BIG difference.

As with every prepackaged food you can likely find most camping food portion/serving sizes extremely optimistic or following a long day of hiking...laughable. I don't know who dreamed up the system but maintain it in mind when you're purchasing it because otherwise you will most probably be going hungry, or maybe you're carrying a pack all day you might even be undernourished.

Another thing to keep in mind is the kind of the container itself. The containers with corners can make it difficult for the boiling water to blend with the camping food leaving dry spots. Also tall narrow containers allow it to be almost impossible to reach inside using a spoon without getting as messy as a two year-old, as you come down to the bottom. (An easy option is to trim off of the top as you eat.) So if you are a light eater or use them afterwards for trash some of the containers have a "ziplock" type of closure which can be useful, if they're not trimmed to ribbons. ;-)

Some camping foods is now able to heated with a heating pouch with the help of water to a chemical heating source. The advantage is there's no flame. The downside is they weigh greater than the pouch by itself and there's more trash to get rid of properly. So it could be better to just bring a little stove if you're backpacking.

Camping food offers tradeoffs. Whilst it isn't usually gourmet that does not mean it has to be bad. In the end a gourmet meal would make for a lot of extra weight and inconvenience. Not my concept of a fun trip. The reason people buy it is because it's light, convenient, and it can provide a quick hot meal. In terms of taste.
