Good & Simple Bushcraft/Camping Food

'What's good food or simple food to bring bushcrafting or camping' gets asked on our bushcraft courses. To that I would say:

1. Tinned Soup
2. Tinned Baked Beans
3. Pasta & Tomato Sauce
4. Sausages
5. Fish
6. A Lump Of Meat
7. Bread & Cheese & Salami
8. Nuts & Dried Fruit
9. Regular Fruit

You are looking for nutritious/high energy/good quality food. Anything with salt, such as peanuts, is good for your hydration (drink plenty water also). Anything with fluid, such soup/pasta sauce, is also good for your hydration. Food in tins can often be heated directly in the tin. Avoid quick-fix stuff. Pre-cooked packet meals can be fine (like wayfarer meals), but ultimately much better to be cooking basically and properly yourself. Leave the packet meals at home!

The physiological benefit of a hot cooked and hydrating meal at least twice a day (breakfast and dinner) is huge.
