Backpacking or canoe tripping or car camping, meal planning is easier with a template to follow. Whether one night out or six or more, nothing is left to chance.
Step One: Create a template
Step Two: Print off copy
Step Three: Mark in days on trip and meals not needed to be packed (such as breakfast at home and lunch on drive to trailhead…).
Step Four: Start filling in the blanks with breakfasts, lunches, suppers, snacks and staples (such as powdered milk, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, juice crystals, olive oil, salt & pepper…).
Step Five: At bottom of meal planner sheet, make list of groceries to buy and items to pack from home.
Step Six: Set out all ingredients (from store and home) and repackage in re-sealable bags for amounts needed for meals.
Step Seven: Check off meals as packed.
Now head out and savor the fruits of your labours!
