Nutritious food with no cooking

Mon 28 Jun, 2010 10:27 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering if you could suggest some yummy, nutritious food (for dinner), that doesn't require heating or cooking (ie. no stove).

My normal 2 minute noodles and dehydrated meals are out, and surely there is a better option than sandwiches......

Hi Mountnman,
The only no heat/cook meal I enjoy taking is brie, olives, sopressa, pesto or houmus etc, sourdough and red wine. A couple of friends I walk with have a Vietnamese background and they have taken rice balls with beef strips they do in a 5 spice mix - it was really yummy - I must get the details from them.
Juney :D

* Flatbread keeps better than white bread on trips and makes great roll-ups with meat and/or salads.
* Not what you had in mind I think - but I love canned rice straight out of the can
* Muesli bars
* There are a number of things that keep well without refrigeration in cooler weather that can be used as/in a meal like cheese, smoked meats and sausage (not the BBQ type, lol).

A really interesting topic, interesting forum al together. Interesting because of personal choices and expectations. I mean I lust after a nice hard cheese and some crusty fresh bread, or some pre-cooked salt beef. Dried peas are good but need cooking. I usually carry oats and saltanas, they can be eaten dry or cooked. Popcorn is a good trail food, light but bulky, and of course jerky.
