I make up my own 24 hour ration packs for hiking. I use items I can readily buy at local supermarkets instead of specialised hiking foods to keep the price down. I like to keep things lightweight, convenient, cheap and filling. I have breakfast, morning snack, afternoon snack, dinner and dessert...
Those of you out there who do not buy army rations or civilian versions what do you take as food when you camp?
I usually take:
1x small pack of oatmeal with honey
1x can of food per day
1x small pack of oat crackers per day
1x pack of dry noodles per day
1x dry pasta meal packet per day
