Dehydrating homemade backpacking meals

We’ve used pre-made dehydrated meals for years for the convenience, but always felt they were not exactly what we wanted. Meals either weren’t something our kids liked, had a funny aftertaste, had more sodium than we wanted, or didn’t have a plant-based option. Plus we didn’t love all of the excessive, bulky packaging that they come in. We recently decided to start making our own meals using a food dehydrator and the meals have been SO DELICIOUS! Why did we wait so long?!

Nut Loaf Recipe

The PBD (Plant-Based Diet) Nut Loaf has been a staple for years.  We LOVE this recipe!  It has very simple ingredients, it’s easy to make, and is filled with a powerhouse of nutrients including protein, fiber, folate, vitamins E, K, A, and copper.  We usually serve it with a side of redskin potatoes and steamed spinach.  It’s the perfect dish for a chilly night and makes great leftovers.

Backpackers’ Cookies

These trail mix cookies make for a wonderful treat on the trail or even at home. They pack a good punch of fiber, protein, healthy fats and just enough sweetness. They are a great alternative or supplement to trail mix.
