I thought this should maybe go in the food forum, but after a quick glance it seems to be a bit more on topic here. I'm going on a short "backpacking" trip this coming weekend and want to bring something different other than freeze dried backpacking food for every meal ( it's really just camping on an island, but you have to hike you gear in about a mile so it's "backpacking" and being such limits the gear/food you can take). I have a lot of experience in camp food, where I can bring and store fresh stuff, but as I have only backpacked a couple of times would like some advice on what else to bring. I don't mind the freeze dried meals, but start to get really tired of them after having eaten four or five of them. So, what do you folks like to eat while backpacking? I'm mostly thinking about meals here, snacks are not really an issue but I would be happy to hear about anything food related. I should note that for this particular trip fires are not allowed. All cooking will be done by pack stove.
