Meal planning for backpacking trips is one of the most important aspects of the trip. Although it's important to pack a few fresh snacks, you always want to bring a few freeze-dried food pouches to be on the safe side. These pouches contain high amounts of protein and calories so that if there was ever an emergency situation you would have secure access to food.
The average backpacking trip is five days
so you'll want to pack as light as possible. With freeze-dried food pouches, you'll cut your backpacking food weight significantly.
