    I use a dehydrator to dry a meat and veggie stew. You can make a lot, and then pack it in ziplock baggies. It keeps a good long time and is easy to re-hydrate though you need to experiment to get the method worked out for you. I made enough to maintain 4 people for a 2 week canoe trip without issue. You can make jerky, fruit jerky and even pemmican with the dehydrator and all this will weigh much less than anything else and weight is god if your humping it any distance.

        A trail mix, nuts and dried fruit are great and even better if you throw a few chocolate buttons in as well.
        I agree with the trail mix - apricots, prunes, raisins, nuts, mango, and dark chocolate. Yummy !!!!

          I have one of these. It's nice because it has the fan/heater unit at one end so all the trays get even air flow.

            I found an AMERICAN HARVEST brand new in the box in the garbage. I cant recommend any other as this is what I have. it works ok but the trays are really fragile. This was about 15 years ago, it is still running.

                I have a cheap Ronco "as seen on TV" dehydrator. Works great. I use parchment paper for the mashed potatoes or things that will fall through the trays.

                  I've been on paleo for only 6 weeks now but I'm a keen walker and had a few problems when I was trying to be low carb. Its a case of finding out for yourself really, but what works for me when I'm more active is fresh fruit such as bananas, oranges, apples, grapes, pears - not too much dried fruit really because it can dehydrate me if I eat too much, as others have also said, but some is ok. I also use jerky and nuts, but for a day walk, fresh fruit is all I need in my bag. The longer I am on this diet the more efficient my body gets, even in these 6 weeks I've noticed a progression. Today I went out walking for 3 hours on just a handful of dates, I had 3 bananas in my bag and never even reached for them. Previously I would have been eating flapjacks, chocolate, the stuff I used to think was energy food. What you eat the day before is probably more important.

                  If I'm at rest during the day however I cut back on the fruit, because I need less of it - at home I'm more likely to be eating vegetables, salad, nuts seeds + meats.

                    Here's our High Sierra trail test pemican recipe

                    4 oz cooked and dried stew beef

                    4 oz rendered suet (better than tallow because it has a higher melting point)

                    1 oz dried greens

                    1 oz dried fruit (we use persimmon)

                    1 tsp salt

                    2 tsp marsala blend spice

                    2 tsp cardamon

                    Makes about 10 oz and 1400 cal (63.4% fat, 22.5% protein the rest carb)

                      This is a very popular recipe.

                      I've seen it at least a half dozen times just today.

                        Sorry for the multiple postings. There are several threads on backpacking food. Just trying to be helpful. Sorry if I was annoying.
