Here’s a favorite bikepacking meal. Ingredients can usually be found in most grocery stores. Super easy to prepare in advance and loaded with about 750 calories. Typically costs less than $3/meal.
2 – blocks Organic millet & brown rice ramen = 480 calories (Costco product)
1 pouch of Lipton Chicken Noodle Supreme Cup-a-soup = 60 calories
1 teaspoon Litehouse freeze-dried ginger
1 tablespoon Litehouse freeze-dried poultry herb blend (both Lighthouse products are usually in the refrigerated salad dressings area of grocery stores)
1 can solid light tuna packed in olive oil ˜200 calories (weight 85 grams) or substitute nuts, jerky, etc.
Preparation: Break up the ramen in a bowl and then add to a 1 litre “medium” zip-lock freezer bag …. not a sandwich bag.
Combine rest of ingredients, except tuna, in bag, and seal.
When ready to “cook” add a can of tuna with the oil and then add 450 ml of boiling water, and seal bag. Wrap bag in something to keep it warm. Wait 5-15 minutes* while stirring bag occasionally to mix contents. *altitude dependent
