Vegan Backpacking Food 4: Snacks and Dinner Cooked on a Wood-Burning Stove

Last weekend we went on another winter snowshoeing/backpacking trip. This post is all about the food we ate. To see pictures of the trip and to read about it, go here.

Check out all of the posts in our Vegan Backpacking Food series here.


Leftover vegan pizza from The Pie on the drive up


Primal vegan jerky strips (Texas BBQ flavor here). Great for a salty/protein-filled snack.


Yes, we eat baby food when we’re camping. Sometimes you just need something that’s not dehydrated or a meal bar. They’re great for moisture and nutrition, plus they’re light and resealable.


This was so fun! We cooked chili and cornbread on the wood-burning stove. I’m not going to go into the details because it was mostly guesswork since it was our first time, but it turned out to be amazing! It was so delicious and actually pretty easy. Maybe when we get down to a science I will do a post about it.


Ben and our friend Mike tending the food and the fire. (No, we didn’t have electricity, there was still some light coming in through the windows.)




Dinner by candlelight! So good!



Annie’s Chocolate Bunny Grahams for dessert


First time trying these too… I thought they were just ok. They tasted strongly like burnt bananas and the texture was interesting. Ben didn’t eat his so this is just my opinion and we’ll probably try them again.


This was the first trip that I had these but they are definitely going to be coming with me on another trip! They are 100% fruit and DELICIOUS!



Snacks from the gas station on the way home. I wanted sweet and salty!

  2. Thanks for providing information for vegan backpackers. I am attempting to do the same with my blog because there just is not that much information out there. I am looking forward to reading more of your blog and once I do I will place a link on my vegan backpacking page for your blog.
