Hi I'm Jennifer Mull with Backwoods in Austin, Texas. Today, we're going to talk about how to fit a week's worth of food in a backpack. The key to this is really planning ahead. You want to make sure that you've planned out your whole week's worth of meals so that you aren't taking anything that you don't need. That's really step one. You can often take a lot less than you think if you really plan your meals out. Therefore, you know, you're going to have less to carry, less weight, etc. After that one of the things that you need to do is on your normal food that you would get at a grocery store, etc. you want to make sure that if there is prepackaging, particularly boxes, you take the things out of the box, that will save you a lot of space and weight. The other thing that is available is freeze dried foods so foods like these come in very small packets. They reconstitute with water and you can really easily carry these, stuff them in different parts of your backpack, they're lightweight and actually quite good to the taste. You also might want to try some, as I mentioned just regular grocery store food that packs in easily, cheeses, salamis, carrots, things like that such that you can add a little variety to your meals. They pack well and again it will just help break up the monotony of just eating freeze dried food.
