OP i'll see your old fashioned oats (just had those for dinner tonight in fact!) and raise you a box of cream of wheat. it keeps for a very long time, is a lot easier to make than hard tack, tastes a lot better, and also is more nutritious.
I just got "recipes for adventure" with my dehydrator for Christmas. So excited to try some of this stuff, not the least of which is pumpkin pie bark. Supposedly, you can just eat is like chips or rehydrate it to make crustless pumpkin pie. This would be the perfect end to "thanksgiving in a bag", which is dried chicken, mashed potato mix and instant stuffing mixed together.
ALLLLLL Right! WHO, craped in my geocache??

If you look at their old ads it seems to be targeting white people.

Apples dehydrate well. Watermelon dehydrates and makes what is basically candy. If you have temp control and can get over 165 degrees, you can make things like slim jims, but better.
Homemade fermented hard sausages. Look around at sausagemaking websites for recipes that look good and try it, it's simple.
Jerky costs about $43587.00 per pound to make, but it's tasty. Use a London broil, slice short-grained to make it more breakable, long-grained to make it more chewy. Whatever you use, get rid of all the external fat before you start.
Not if you know how to prepare it. Heart is great in stews, particularly when canned, because it doesn't fall apart like other cuts. You do need to soak it to pull off the extra blood, but I've had it as a steak too, and it isn't bad.
The question wasn't what is the best cut, it was what's the cheapest.
how do you know I'm not a childchild? also wtf is tendies and KD
Just got one myself, so far only tried apples and bananas- apples were OK, but bananas were much, much sweater than I expected. They were almost kind of caramel-y in flavor. Also bananas are dirt cheap and easy to slice; I imagine you could even mash then then mold them into uniform wafers for optimal drying.
Freezer bags: add instant rice or potatoes, grind some jerky, add some freeze dried vegetables (bonus for wasabi peas cause you're not a pussy), salt and pepper.
Add hot water, give it 5 mins, eat
This thread just reminded me how much i want a dehydrator, well, i guess i know what im putting my christmas money towards...
I just found dehydrated coconut milk at my asian grocers, you can use it to make coconut milk or coconut cream, im sure it has some sort of /out/ cooking application, it comes in either a big bag, or a box with 3 single serve sachets in it.
I was thinking of combining it with some agar agar ($1.50 AUD from the same store) and some sugar with the required amount of water for some sort of coconut jelly pudding thing...maybe add some coffee for a kinda cocochino jelly? Im still working out the kinks...
Oats are goat, 2 and 3/4 parts fine ground quick oats to 2 parts powdered milk to 3/4 part sugar. Just add water and cook for creamy delicious oatmeal.
You can get some pretty funky pasta thats realy tiny, little donuts (think uncooked spagetios) or little stars, that shit cooks in like 2-3 mins in boiling water, or just throw it in whatever soupy mess your cooking and let it absorb all that flavour while also thickening your meal.
Back in scouts it wasnt a hike unless you had scroggin, (i think its called gorp or trail mix as well) throw whatever the fuck you want into a bag, m&ms, nuts, dried fruit, breakfast cereals, broken up biscuits or crackers, smashed chocolate bars, yoghurt chips, literally raid your cupboards and throw all the tasty snacks you find in a big ziplock bag, just snack on it as you walk.
Chicken stock cubes are pretty good for making base level broths, or adding extra flavour to rice, cous cous, just makes trail food better imo, plus super easy to carry.
Tea is awesome while out, stopping on the side of a trail to brew up a cup on a cold morning, then kicking back and watching nature is one of my favourite feels.
I don't see why fat isn't recommended more for main source of calories.
860g of coconut oil is 7,450 calories, doesn't need refrigeration, doesn't need to be cooked. Might not be the most appetizing thing to eat straight but...
I suppose the fact that it isnt on the most appetising side of things is why people dont mention it, and because eating pure fat or oil isnt actually that fun, plus its a sure fire way to bring on the hershy squirts and i can think of few things i want less than that while out.
Dont get me wrong, its a great source of calories, like you said, and i know fats as energy have their place, those ultralighter kids love their olive oil, but im not too keen on wandering into the forest with just a jar of coconut oil for rations, im sure theres a way to factor coconut oil into your out diet while still being able to enjoy what your eating. I think its good for frying in.
Its the same thing with peanut butter, that shit is calorie dense, and it has its place in meal prep, but peanut butter on its own (while initially might sound tempting) isnt a fun experience when you get down to it in high volume.
Hey, maybe you could make some sort of food paste with shit like coconut oil and peanut butter? Plus a bunch of other shit as well, chia seeds are still trendy right?. There was a recepie for jar pemmican that was sort of a fatty fruity nutty meaty paste where a 1qt jar could last you a few days.
Smoking tobbaco is more addictive than chewing it because smoking it releases a powerful MAOI that's actually considered too dangerous to prescribe in most situations. Nicotine itself isn't really addictive.
Are you fucking retarded? Nicotine is addictive as fuck, the only reason smoking cigarettes is worse is because the lungs get involved, rapidly increasing transfer speed to your brain. The reason chew and cigars aren't as readily addictive is because absorption through the mouth takes much longer to the point you might be finished by the time it reaches your head making it much harder for your brain to connect the two and form an addiction.
Nicotine is effective as an appetite suppressant. And as a smoker, I wouldn't want to be going through withdrawals during an already stressful situation that would require bugging out.
I gained about 11kg after quitting smoking 9 months ago, I was a skelly most of my life and now I'm skinnyfat and can't lose the weight even though I exercise.
The main difference I've noticed, is that (for me), I'll go outside to have a cigarette so I'll only smoke one every hour or two. When I dip, I'll keep one in all the time, at work, while watching tv, a few times while sleeping... causes weird and intense dreams. Plus, I'd gut it so I was probably getting way too much nicotine.
>Nicotine itself isn't really addictive.
KISS my fucking ass it isn't. I quit 4 months ago and I still and wanting to kill the next person that looks in my general direction for no reason.
It's much better now than it was but I stll get crazy cravings and am still clearing/hacking crap off my lungs.
But for easy carbs it's handy, cooks quicker than rice and takes up about as much space as a bag of pasta.
fry some mushrooms in a pan, add some salt and pepper then some cous cous to soak up the excess juices some rabbit cooked in fat with some garlic/mixed herbs and a black coffee and your good
No really, it's not that addictive. The shit in cigarettes gets you addicted way easier and faster because that's how big tobacco makes money.
I use electronic cigs off and on, before I went to boot I would vape the equivalent of a pack a day and didn't suffer even a headache.
Stop smoking cigarettes. Only do pure tobacco rolled or electronic, since the juices generally only contain three ingredients - two USDA approved chemicals that essentially make it viable to vaporize the nicotine, and the nicotine itself.
From an article about the chemicals, PG and VG:
.."Propylene Glycol and the Vegetable Glycerin are essentially non-toxic. Both of these e-liquid components have been deemed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as “Generally Recognized as Safe” for human consumption. This means that even before you have started using electronic cigarettes and inhaling the vapor produced by the e-liquids that they contain, you have already consumed them through processed food or you might have already applied them onto your skin by using various cosmetic products."
I'm only slightly shilling for them. Otherwise smoke away with your natural methods pal, just stay away from cigarettes.
Eating and using PG and EV is completely fucking different than vaporizing it and inhaling it. You never really want anything other than air in your lungs, how is filling them with burnt sugars a good idea? Better than cigarettes but still fucking stupid.
Quaker Oats is the shittiest type of oatmeal you can buy.
It is. I don't like honey with anything really (including tea) but mix-in with CoW it's just a godly flavor that isn't honeylike at all. I just finished my bahx of the original and bought a bahx of the whole grain kind. Wicked good!
>Stop smoking cigarettes
I smoke cigars, not cigs. I've just always been told that they're not nearly as addictive because you don't get your lungs involved despite having more nicotine.
i am lazy as fuck
>think of it like a cornmeal porridge where you use corn instead of oats
Oh, you mean grits. Try putting a bunch of shredded cheese and some cut up peppers in them while they're still hot enough to melt the cheese.
Bring 3 whole potatoes, a beef bullion cube, 1 onion, some meat (beef is king), carrots and a bag of any spice that sounds good. Throw it in a pot by the campfire for a few hours and you'll have a great meal.
Brown the meat first. Put water in there if it looks like it needs it
I was informing that poster that chewing is a limiting factor in camping. In my past I've had to slow down for hikers that become irrate and lethargic once their stash ran out. It's an idiotic habit.
Biltong, it's a South African thing. Similar to beef jerky but it's not sweet. I can't stand sweet meat. It's easy as fuck to make at home and it keeps forever.
Bokkoms are South African dried fish. Haven't tried it but I want to. It's probably good.
Personally I love oatmeal. You can add flaxmeal, dried berries, cinnamon, nuts, so many things to mix it up.
The trick is to only gut them then cook them. No need to skin or scale them. After they are cooked the scales/skin peels right off easily. It doesn't flavor the meat either. We did that all the time when camping. We'd just cook them on a stick over the fire then peel, season, and eat.
Green pea soup. If I set up camp for a longer while, I'll bring a sack or two of dried peas, which I set to soak in a plastic bag the day before. Then, the next day, I'll set my pot over some even coals, dunk the peqas in, some carrot, onion and garlic too, cover it all with water, and add a diced chunk of lardy bacon. Boil that for a few hours, add majoram, salt, pepper and mustard, and eat with raw minced onion along with whatever's been caught, and some black bread with koskenlaskija cheese.
Scaling ain't hard or time-consuming. The reason we do it first is because no-one likes seein' those buggers on their plate. Although that's not much of a matter if you're eating it off of a stick in the first place.
what does one do with powdered milk anyway? aso, how well does it keep in wet or yumid conditions? i'm guessing a twist-tie isn't going to be sufficient to keep it from getting musty and dank
>good ass breakfast
I guess it does sound pretty good tbqh friend-of-the-family.
just let it soak in water mang
back when it was issued in the army, they didnt just make you eat hardtack raw. most of the time, they would put it in stews or with other foods. they only ever ate it raw when they had nothing left to put it with.
might i say, hardtack in stew is fuckin delicious
>jar of peanut butter
>jar of nutella
>dried fruits of your choice(berries, bananas, etc)
>mix into container
>eat a spoonful when hungry
Shits awesome and pure calories.
Campfire Baked Potatoes.
No foil needed!
>toss sucker into fire
>cover it up nicely with burning firewood and shit
>wait roughly 30 minutes (depending on heat)
>get that potato outta there
>cut in half with a knife
>sprinkle salt and pepper
>eat with a fork or spoon
How about this?
A cup of quinoa and a cup of buckwheat in a pot.
You'll probably need about six cups of water. So a two liter pot should do.
Bring it to the boil, uncovered.
Let it simmer for about 30 minutes, covered.
Take it off the heat and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Stir some olive oil into it. Maybe three tablespoons.
Serve it and add salt and hot sauce to taste.
You're probably looking at about (roughly):
Quinoa is a complete protein and makes up about half of that protein.
It'll stick to the pot so you'll probably want to boil some water in it afterwards to make it separate.
>mfw retards anons don't know about MAOIS in tobacco
>mfw anon is as equally retarded because you get the effects of those maois with any way of consuming tobacco
nicotine is 7/10 to quit
maois are 5/10 to quit
together and by smoking ROA where they provide a "rush" they are 8/10 to quit.
>Ramen noodles ;dried soup vegies; onion flakes
>rice ;frozen chopped brocolli soy sauce
>quick oats mixed with walnuts ;salt, powdered milk, cinnamon, and sugar
>pepperoni stick; sharp cheddar ;crackers
>Mountain House freeze dried dinners
>eggs; potatos ;tortillas ;chopped onion and pepper
Whatever I can scrape together.
Exact same thing happened to me, used to be skinny as, quit smoking start of 2015 and gained about 15kgs of fat, ultimate skinny fat faggoy. Tried running didn't really work, improved my diet still nothing really. Finally found the right mix of weight lifting (starting strength) and boxing fast, forward 6 months lost about 5kgs and the rest seems to have become muscle, never looked so good. Wife is very happy to say the least.
I make dinners out of freeze dried stuff. Like pic related. I'll take 1/2 cup of the cheese mix to 1 cup of pasta. Add the milk and butter powder to your taste. Put it in a zip lock along with some freeze dried ham/chicken. I bring a sea to summit pot with me and I can make an entire box of pasta into damn good mac and cheese.
Nothing like camping and eating mac and cheese. Also have a beef stroganoff meal I do as well.
I hear it's bad to eat the scales/skin because toxins are supposed to accumulate there. Not sure if it's true or an old wives tale, but I've had mild alergic reactions a few times from eating theskin and scales, so I tend to avoid it and would suggest other's do the same
i agree with him. i have a bag of the brand with the old white guy smiling on the front and ive tried a number of applications (and yes please judge my culinary judgment), but no matter how i use it or how much i use, i still get this nasty fragrant earthy weed taste. but then when i try some other proprietor's quinoa, its delicious. so yes my question is what exactly are the differences and what am i using that is so funky
quaker instant oat variety pack
they are loaded with sugar and whey solids, and they cook very quickly and easily
raw oats are a bitch to cook and are not practical for backpacking, that is probably the worst camping food you could possibly think of.
By kind I mean black, red or white. Black has the strongest flavour. White goes shitty and mushy fastest. Red is probably between the two.
If the flavour of black is too strong for you I think the buckwheat might take the edge off.
Pretty much anything should take the edge off. I typically use it as I would brown rice.
Anyone seen/tried these before? $5 a bar at Wally World. Reviews say they're actually pretty dang good. I'm going to try the one I bought soon. Cheaper than most other survival bars and 2400 calories is pretty decent. Not great for extended survival while travelling, but fine for a day when you dick around close to camp.
oh I'd suck her dick in a heartbeat
POWDERED WHOLE EGG (some guy on ebay, by far the best deal of 6 dozen eggs [2.25lbs of powder] for $36 free shipping)
POWDERED CHEDDAR CHEESE (gormet brand on amazon)
NONGSHIM SPICY RAMEN 4.2oz JUMBO PACKS (pack of 20 amazon)
INSTANT ROLLED BLACK BEANS (pack of 8 amazon)
FLAX SEED (same guy with the eggs on ebay)
MOTHERFUCKING TANG (amazon, bitches)
QUAKER INSTANT OAT VARIETY PACK (amazon)
so far, breakfast will be powdered egg and cheese with some oatmeal.
lunch will be the flax seeds, but i dont know what else to do with them to make it a complete meal and to add more flavor, maybe add peanut butter but i havent decided yet
dinner will be those motherfucking amazing nongshim with the equivlant of one or maybe two powdered eggs added + those instant black beans which taste great on their own + cheese on the beans...
im thinking maybe i should add some mashed potato for dinner as well, havent decided that yet either.
but anyway, this will all be cooked in a giant ultralight nonstick pot for easy cleanup too
>>fine for a day
This is SURVIVAL food - not meant to be eaten in one day. In an actual emergency this could sustain you for over a week. The bar IIRC is scored into 6 sections - one or two sections per day...
ease of use (instant cooking)
nutrition to weight ratio
can be eaten raw in case of emergency, easy to chew and digest, ramen is always accessible as a food source
ramen is actually perfect for backpacking
damn nigger shut the fuck up
you sound like that turpentine hippy faggot on youtube
ramen if fine
palm oil is nice and fatty and wheat flower is filling. plus your body needs /salt/ while out.
is it ok to eat cheap ramen everyday?
but if you actually look at the motherfucking god tier nongshim, they managed to cut all the MSG out and probably did some other shit too. i havent recieved the packages yet, i just ordered all that shit
Holding the packaging it feels rock solid, but it's not that hard to bite into, although it's extremely dry. This one is apple cinnamon and following a bite with a swig of water makes the chalky-ness less noticable and I notice the actual flavor more. Without water it mostly tastes like nothing and you'd have to hold it in your mouth longer to moisten it. It's actually not bad, I wouldn't say it's difficult to eat (like a child's hated vegetable), it's just not enjoyable, like eating plain bread that has no loft. 4/10 I don't think I'd bring more than two squares(out of pack of 6) on a backpacking trip.
