The best food dehydrator. I’ll
share why I love my dehydrator to make delicious and healthy meals for the
trail. I'll share why I love my dehydrator!
When I first started camping and then
backpacking and interior canoeing, I never thought that I’d dehydrate
food. It sounded complicated, and a lot
I would use pre-made packages, I tried the military field rations (yug), ate Kraft dinner and I even considered getting those super expensive ‘all done for you, just add water’ meals. But those cost A LOT of money! It seemed like I had to sacrifice my wallet or my heath and taste-buds.
Then, someone showed me how easy it was to dehydrate my own meals for camping. After a meal they’d made during the winter or spring… say of chilli, they put the extra leftover chilli on the dehydrator, and by the next day, they had a dehydrated meal that could be taken on their next camping trip.
It’s as easy as throwing your left overs in
your best food dehydrator, and then putting them in a plastic bag, and bringing the food
When on the trail, in the morning, soak the dried meal, and by supper, heat and have a healthy home cooked meal in the bush!
The food you make at home is healthier, tastier, and not full of chemicals. Plus, it saves you SO much money!
Compare the price of $7+ dollars for a pre-packaged meal to using your leftover meals which cost less than a few dollars each.
Beyond making meals, you can also make:
Fruit leather – mix your favourite fruits into your own personal fruit leather blend.
Meat Jerky – healthy and delicious.
Dried fruits (they taste WAY better than store bought dried fruit) – plus they aren’t full of chemicals and are healthier.
