OK… so now a few food tips

Like the article stated; there are a few key points to remember.

1. You need more Carbs. Pasta dishes allow for tasty carbs uploads. That and most pasta dishes are easy to prepare in a One Pot.
Shell noodles and a package of chicken chunks, or rice and chicken or tuna make for easy yummy alternatives to ramen noodles and jerky.
Carbs in morning are important too. breakfast bars, oatmeal, and eggs are good options. Try to eat a warm meal in the morning. This gets your day off to a great start.

2. Timing is everything. The article talked about when you eat. Breakfast about an hour before you start your activity, lunch is great, because you can have many lunches. Little snacks throughout the day, a good cup of soup, and more snacks later. Keeping your body energized by adding fuel is important during activity. Dinner should be a biggy. Even a good one pot meal should fill up the stomach and get you ready for the night ahead.
A little snack before hitting the rack is a good idea too, just to stoke the fire in the belly for a warm sleep.

3. Protein. A variety of protein items are a must. Tuna, and Chicken offer good protein meals while protein bars and drinks are a good idea too.

4. Variety is the spice of life. Get out of the same ole food ruts.. try something new. If you don’t like it… at least you tried it once, you don’t have to do it again. Having a variety will make your camp outs interesting and add to fun of testing skills and trying new things.

Simple rules that will get you or at least your taste buds through the next camp out!

Happy Scouting!
