Doing a hike these days does not mean that you have to bring along the tired, and boring lunch you always pack. Because 1) you are in a hurry to leave or 2)to tired to make anything else. These days you can bring along any kind of food you like all you really need is some sort of Primus to heat water, and something to prepare your food in, and voila you are good to go.
Last summer when we did a bit of hiking, and camping a new Primus was bought. I have to tell you it was truly one of the best investments we ever made. The Primus is both small enough to carry around with you in a small backpack, and light weight enough to bring along on even the hardest of hikes.
All the times we go hiking we tend to bring some sort of food with us, and it can be anything from REALTURMAT or a few sandwiches for easy pease eating. We tend to stick to regular cheese/ham because that’s just what we like, but making something a bit more fancy is not that hard. Just add it to a box like the one under, and you will never have a problem again. The food will stay in its place, and you will have many options as to what you bring..it can be carrots, sweet peas, strawberries to name but a few of my personal favourites.
Leftovers from dinner:
Having a refrigerator filled with food you do not get around to eating is both economically stupid, and not good for the environment. So instead of possibly throwing away parts of yesterdays dinner (because you for the 100 time made too much) why not take leftovers with u on the slopes or a regular hike.
Here is a great little recipe i found just a few days ago on Matprat.
Recipe for omelette with cheese and tomato salsa:
– 2 eggs
– 2 table spoons with water.
– 3 table spoons grated white cheese or other cheese that you might prefer
– 1/2 tablespoons of butter for frying
– 1 piece tomato about.
– 1 cup chopped cucumber
– 1 tablespoon of olive oil
– 1/2 teaspoon wine vinegar or apple vinegar
– 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/4 teaspoon pepper
– 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
– 2 tbsp sprouts
To sum up:
You can bring whatever kind of food with you on a hike, but as you do there are more options the just the regular boring sandwiches we as Norwegians seem to be such huge fans of.
