Backpack Camping and Low Carb

Hello! At times I'll throw a backpack on and head out and camp. Usually, I'll leave Friday after work and come back Sunday. My normal food is dehydrated meals for Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner and some nuts, etc. as trail snacks. Not very low carb! I'd like to explore some options to "do better".

So ... if you were carrying everything for the weekend in a backpack, how would you do better at low carb? Knowing you have some hiking miles, etc.

Thanks in advance.

All good suggestion, thanks. I'd have to see how many ice packs I'd have to carry to keep things cool. If too many then the pack gets too heavy.

Beef jerky and pepperoni snack sticks need no refrigeration and are fairly lightweight.

If you are out in nature, you should at least look into the concept of grouding/earthing for energy. There is a free documentary called 'The Grounded' on youtube and it is well worth a watch. It does feature experiments, blood tests and interviews with a couple of doctors as well.

During the power outage from Hurricane Irma, I lived on avocado, nuts, and LC bars (Atkins or Quest) for 5 days. All are lightweight, require no refrigeration or cooking, and have good fat/protein/carb ratios. Not to mention, yummy!

I love cans of smoked oysters and mussels. They are available at the dollar store, as are packages of pepperoni, nuts, etc. I only eat one meal a day, so would probably just pack a variety of things like that. My meals tend to be strange since I usually have a bunch of weird combinations of things.

The Target snack bar has mayo in packets (I don't ever see that anywhere else) so you can make tuna or chicken salad with the meat in pouches.
