There is nothing like getting lost in nature for a few days. Yet if you are like most people, backpacking may not seem like the easiest feat.  I’ve been camping a few times but when my boyfriend and I decided to embark on the 4-day backpacking trip, I definitely was a little intimidated. Luckily, my boyfriend’s cousin is a backpacking guru & has been going on epic backpacking trips since he was a little kid.

Below is a full food guide on what to eat when backpacking. This is what we ate on our trip to the Eastern Sierras.

Extras (but very important!):

Ketchup Packets

3 liters of water (+ water filtration system for rivers, lakes & streams)

Olive Oil

Sugar Packets

Instant Milk Powder

Almond Butter or Peanut Butter Packets

Extra Protein bars

Crystal Light

Gatorade Powder

Keep in mind each meal should weigh around 4 ounces or less if you are trying to go ultra light. Below is a picture of all our food laid out (we over packed a little).
