Freeze Dried Adventure Food
Adventures such as hiking trips, mountaineering expeditions and challenges like trekking from Land's End to John O' Groats or hiking through the Alps take determination, skill and passion for adventure.
These kind of activities and sports should be taken incredibly seriously as they push the body to its absolute limit and allow people to achieve truly incredible things. These sports are so popular because of the adrenaline rush and sense of accomplishment that can be achieved throughout them.
When completing one of these adventures, nutrition is absolutely crucial, especially when trying to cover specific distances or deal with a particularly difficult climb or traversing hard terrain. From increased calories to help fuel your body and keep you warm in extreme weather, to a delicious meal to help lift spirits in the camp after a long day the right food can make all the difference in how successful your adventure is.
Food control is a vital part of completing any adventure, ensuring that you get the correct kind of food, at the correct times. When on an expedition or adventure, one thing that is important is how easy meals are to prepare and eat, especially in difficult conditions. Getting food that can be made quickly, while also being filling and providing the correct nutrients is difficult and is an issue many adventurers need to keep in mind. High calorie meals can maintain energy levels throughout an adventure, especially when eating food that releases energy slowly, this can help provide you with the energy necessary to cover your target distances for each day.
