29 Jul Easy, lightweight backpacking meal – chicken Pad Thai and veggies!
I recently had the wonderful opportunity to appear on a segment with Q13 Fox news in Seattle sharing one of my favorite backpacking meal recipes :
Chicken Pad Thai with Veggies!
Making your own backpacking meals takes only a few minutes and is a much healthier and more cost effective option than purchasing a pre-made meal at the store. By opting for freeze-dried or dehydrated options, the meal is super light and easy to carry on the trail – simply add boiling water and allow it rehydrate for about 10 minutes!
Here is the recipe for my super easy Chicken Pad Thai – feel free to modify the recipe and add in any vegetables that sound good to you (for the Q13 segment, I added in freeze dried peas, butternut squash and carrots!).
And here’s another recipe for a Chicken Curry with Green Beans:
For me, backpacking meals are so special – not only because I’m fueling my body, but because they represent time spent in the wilderness with the people that I really care about. These are meals that I’ve eaten in some of the most beautiful places on earth – some of my happiest memories include eating a meal out of my food cozy and watching a sunset melt on the mountains around me.
Have any questions? Don’t hesitate to reach out – I love hearing about your adventures and how you are getting out on the trails!
