Vegan Backpacking Food Ideas!!!

WTF does TREEfool eat???? DELICIOUS STUFF! DUH! I am always trying new recipes and seeing what works best for my energy levels, my wallet, and my taste buds. When I am at home all of my work outs, bjj fights, and bike rides are fueled purely by fresh fruits like kiwis, mangos, bananas, papayas, pineapple, raspberries, cherries, watermelon… well you get my point! I can’t think of a better way to replenish my glycogen stores than with insanely nutrient dense, delicious, mouth watering fruits but when I am backpacking I end up eating a lot of dried fruits and baby food packets. *Cue Music* CAN’T STOP THIS!

Seriously guys, the International Association for Research on Cancer (which is part of the World Health Organization) has categorized the consumption of processed meat as a Group 1 carcinogen. That means it is in the same group as smoking tobacco or living in a house with asbestos. Now ask yourself this question: Why hasn’t anyone told me this before?

Go watch the documentary “Forks Over Knives” to have your mind blown. It is free on Netflix.


  1. Nice ideas! Haven’t tried baby food pouches before! Sometimes I make smoothies though and put into pouches for the 1st one or two days – they keep fine.

  2. I know this video is old, but when I go backpacking as a vegan I always go by the local Asian shop. They have loads of Indian food ready to eat meals in light weight ‘astronaut’ pouches. You don’t need to even heat it up. As someone who loves savory food, that’s my biggest tip. I have lived on those for a month. There are also these Indian snack mix (Bombay Mix) made out of dried chickpeas, rice flour, peanuts, and banana. They are soooo filling for the weight, and can’t get crushed easily. I find it much more satisfying than granola.

  3. Vegans are fucking gay. If I see you on the trail I’m gonna beat you’re fucking ass and make you eat “pork skins” You baby food eating cock smoker!

  4. If you do juicing at home, you could dehydrate the pulp for crackers, wraps. And you can buy stuff on sale or from the Dollar Tree )local deep discount place) for this, also.

  5. “Camping as a vegan? What do you mean you don’t hunt boars naked, like a caveman? It’s natural, our ancestors did it. CANINES.”
    ( Great video though 🙂 )

  6. I always bring these ready-to-eat Indian food packets that you buy at any Asian shop. Sometimes you just need something spicy! 🙂 Also, they’re light weight, high calorie.

  7. Love the ideas, thanks! I am starting to see non-dairy milk powders in stores now as well (ie. coconut milk). I haven’t tried it to see how it fairs, but it could be a much lighter alternative! 🙂

  8. Love your video! I’m flexitarian not vegan but when I saw a hiking meal video that included prepackaged pre seasoned beef crumbles I almost lost my cookies! Lol! These look much better!!
