Instant oatmeal for breakfast, I dont like to spend time in camp in the morning so fast is good. Take jerky, granola, trail mix with some fruit and chocolate chips for a lunch and snack. Back at camp after dark, tortillas- they don't take up much space and you can put anything in a tortilla. Same rationale for precooked pasta and rice with your precooked or raw meat selection for dinner. They work with most anything flr a quick meal. Instant potatoes can also be decent, but they do need a little help. Pack seasonings and spices according to your preference.
My grandpa's idea of camp food was a case of the cheapest pork and beans known to mankind. Lol. Not a pleasant camp in the evenings for the ears or the nose.
I eat canned stew/soup/chowder every night at my elk base camp. Never had an issue. I am wary these days of Mountain House meals however, for the very reason you stated. Darn shame since I like them and they are so convenient and trouble free.Curious what everyone likes to eat while hunting 4-6 nights camping near the truck. I have had issues with Mt.House causing constipation like dont go for days issues. Make fun but any help is appreciated. I have tried a few different meal brands, I assume elevation is part of it. And salty preservatives is the other.
That looks pretty good. I don't like to mess with coolers on any trips anymore. That looks like something I'd try though.Tortallini requires no refridgeration and goes with any meat/veggie combo.
I usually have it for 3 meals, moose italian sausage first night, smoked salmon second night,
leftover veggies/meat third night.
