If you're planning a longer hiking trip, here are some great foods to bring. Dried or dehydrated foods are lighter in weight and easier to pack and carry. They also retain much of their nutritional value. Some require the use of water for rehydration. Canned foods are easy to prepare, but heavier to carry. Bring these sparingly. Fresh food is ideal, but not always easy to keep fresh, especially in warmer climates. Try to keep variety in the food you choose to avoid boredom on long treks.
