Seriously. It has carbs. It has protein. It has a ton of calories. No matter how tired or dehydrated I am, I can always stomach Trail Mix. In a pannier, they are fine. In your pocket- not so much

Some people are huge proponents of beef jerky too.

learned about these from another inmate




under $3 each. Add pack of tortillas, and if feeding two people I'll add in a can of black or pinto beans.

theres no need to spend $$ on special camping/hiking food, assuming you will have the facility to boil a pint or two of water, supermarket shelves are packed with dried goods that pack small and light, taste good and keep you fuelled.
there are always plenty of noodles, pastas and rices to choose from,
other favourites are instant mashed potato flakes (especially in bacon or fried onion flavour), instant porridge, jerky flaked and added to rice is quite nice, we have stuff called "beanfeast" here, dried soya meat substitute, (looks like dry mouse crap but rehydrates into fake beef mince+gravy. sounds awful but its really nice)

pillsbury cinnamon twists are in a big tube but light and a total luxury after a hard day.

That sure looks awesome!

The website doesn't note how many cans you get for $20. Surely it isn't 1?

Sadly, just one. But stacked inside is a pack and a half of precooked deliciousness (40 or 50 slices) Having tried both, I believe it to be rebranded Yoders bacon. Buy in bulk and save! (12 cans $159.99)

OK.
When you pass by a city with a Cost Plus World Market stop, go in and head to the section with the sample sizes.
Go wild, they have tons of great treats in easy to transport sizes. Meat and cheese that don't need a cooler, crackers,cookies, condiments etc.
Don't forget to stop in the chocolate section and the beer section as well.

Stop at the local market for a $5 rotisserie chicken, a can of beans or corn, a bag of ice for my Tequila and find camp.

Haven't done any camping on the moto yet (and my month-long trip just got pushed back by a few months, silly wedding), but have done lightweight backpacking and camping. The Mountain House stuff actually isn't bad -- especially if you don't want to carry/clean anything -- but they're a bit unhealthy. Pricey as all hell, too.

MRE's are actually great if you can stomach them. Personally I love the things. Remember they're packed with calories on purpose. I haven't been able to reliably find a supplier in years, though.

Homemade beef jerky is a great camp and trail food. Inexpensive if you do it at home, keeps a good while at all temps, and your oven probably can do all the dehydrating you need. Or use a box fan and some furnace filters (see Good Eats episode on jerky). Combine with shelf stable cheese, bread/tortillas, and a side of fruit/veggies for a pretty complete meal. You can also rehydrate jerky for use in stews and soups.

Tortillas are awesome for saving space vs. bread. Corn are healthier, but I prefer flour or whole wheat. Multigrain crackers are small and have solid nutrition, but be ready to eat them as crumbs if you don't pack them in something solid :P

Take some peanut butter, honey, dried fruit (cranberries and cherries are good), flax seed, slivered almonds, and sunflower seeds. Slap all that in a tortilla and enjoy. Tons of nutrients and tastes awesome.

Powdered pancake mix comes in small packets and you just need water. Combine that with some dried fruit.

Smoked meats/sausages are shelf stable. Ditto for a good many cheeses.

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is shelf stable and doesn't need to be refridgerated. I can believe it's not butter, but it's a good substitute. Likewise (jkam mentioned this) hoard or buy packets of condiments. Shelf stable for a decent period.

Olive oil is shelf stable for all intents and purposes, is healthy, and can do multiple duties as fry oil, cooking oil, and flavor enhancer. Chain lube if you really wanna. Stir with some powdered spices to make a trail vinegarette for meat/jerky marinade or sauce for veggies/meats. Just using olive oil to fry something up can dramatically change its flavor profile.

If you have the room/weight fresh veggies and fruits are awesome suppliments and will be plenty shelf stable for a day or two minimum. Planning ahead you can dehydrate damn near any fruit or veggie at home. Avoid canned stuff if you can as it destroys most of the nutritional content of veggies and their flavor.

Others have mentioned the individual packets of tuna. These are great too, but pricey compared to a can of tuna. I pack a can if I can afford the space/weight, or put it in some tupperware that I plan on reusing later to save weight. It's not like it's a huge price difference, but yea :P

Look into dehydrated beans and legumes. Make sure that you can presoak them in ambient temp water and have time for it -- you really don't want to waste a ton of fuel trying to keep a rolling boil going for a long time.

Others have mentioned instant oatmeal. Don't buy the retail stuff -- make your own. Really freaking easy, tons less sugar, and much better nutritional content. Same space, less cash.

Bullion and/or stock cubes are tiny and come in a variety of types (beef, chicken, veggie, etc). Toss these in with some water, jerky, and dehydrated veggies for a soup or stew. You can also add in dehydrated beans if you have some, but rehydrate those first. Though the cubes tend to be high in sodium so keep that in mind.

Boil-in-the-bag stuff is great since you prepare, cook, and eat all in the same bag and can transition to pot-based cooking just fine.

Anyway, general rule of thumb is look to backpacking and DIY boil-in-the-bag type recipies. On a moto you're probably less concerned than a backpacker about weight and/or space. You can only go but so far from civilization without packing inordinate amounts of fuel, so trying to get 7 days of food into a 10L packing space isn't really necessary. Well, unless you're plopping your moto somewhere for a week to hike on foot, but that's a different story.
