Re: Suggestions for best backpacking meals

@Snoborder73 Great topic, thanks for starting it!

While not exactly the most nutritionally balanced meal, for shorter one-to-two night trips I really like to take stove top stuffing, instant mashed potatoes, a gravy sauce packet, and a packet of chicken. It's a bit heavy with the chicken, but its super fun (and delicious) to make up Thanksgiving dinner on the trail! 

I'll also take mini donuts for breakfast on the first morning. They take zero prep, taste good even if they're smashed, and go really well with Starbucks Via instant coffee. For me, particularly on hikes, bikepacking trips, or climbs that are particularly strenuous or at altitude (both of which mess with my desire to eat, even if I'm starving) I find that carrying a little extra weight is worth it if it delicious enough for me to eat it even under the toughest circumstances.

Thanks!
