Spineless Trail Mix
For our backpacking trip to Mount Rogers, Ryan and I kept our menu simple. The dogs had dog food. We had Mountain House Beef Stroganoff for dinner, oatmeal for breakfast. For snacks, we had trail mix, avocados and oranges on hand.
If you want to be a little more adventurous, you can try to add some invertebrates to your trail diet. Maybe some crickets or chocolate covered ants. A tarantula, perhaps. With invertebrates comprising 95% of all animal species, the possibilities could be a little daunting. To help narrow down your menu, Backpacking Magazine did a little taste test. Enjoy!
