Advice on food for a hiking trip
« on: March 11, 2016, 10:09:06 AM »
Hello All!
I am going on a week long hiking trip in April, and I'm trying to plan for food. And in the past I haven't been very successful... So I'm looking for some advice.

Over the holiday season, I stopped eating paleo, but I've since returned to paleo and have finally broken the sugar cravings and my energy levels are back to normal and I'm feeling MUCH better.
I have a hiatal hernia and GERD which makes things a little difficult. Anytime I work out really hard- I get really nauseas and struggle to keep food down, and every exhausting hike I've been on, I puke and lose all my energy and I tend to feel very cold. This has been consistent over the past few years. I've been hiking a lot and have been going to the gym regularly, but I still get pretty nauseas after a good workout. I do not take any medication for GERD because I made the decision to try to fix it through my diet instead of staying on pills for the rest of my life. So far- I've done pretty well with that except for strenuous workouts. I DO drink apple cider vinegar to help with my symptoms.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has this problem? Does anyone have any food suggestions to bring on the trip? Any tricks to calm nausea while hiking? I managed to calm my stomach down earlier after going to the gym with a banana blueberry smoothie with hemp seed.

So far for food, im planning on making my own jerky, bringing mixed nuts, some celery with almond butter, bananas, and probably some apples.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome!
Thanks!

Sounds awesome!  Bananas go over-ripe really fast.  I don't mind eating them but many people hate them at that point.
Definitely mixed nuts.  Some consider raisins a cheat but if not go for it.  Jerky is amazing - try to take it easy on the salt.  I don't worry about salt but with the nuts, jerky, etc. it could be a bit much.

Could also bring canned tuna - perhaps those pouches with seasoned tuna ready to eat.

Also consider making some dried fruit or veggie chips. I love zucchini and squash chips. I keep my recipe simple when it comes to veggie chips. I base the sliced veggies with a bit of olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper and put them in the oven at about 200 degrees F for a few hours or until they attain the crunch that I like. Note: If you use too much oil they have a harder time becoming crispy.

It's a tasty, yet simple snack that's super easy to make.


Good Luck
