Food List

Written by ralph on 24/04/2012. Posted in Kit and Equipment

We decided to ensure that we had sufficient supplies to ensure a breakfast and evening meal for every day that we were away.  The main reason for this was the potential difficulty in ensuring that Belinda had a gluten free option when buy from a foreign shop or eating in a restaurant.

This is the complete list that we packed, in two 50 litre ‘Really Useful Boxes’ (see here) , for a 21 day trip.

We selected packet meals that were ‘split’ into 3 categories; those to eat with rice, those to eat with pasta and those that would go with mashed potato.  This ensured a bit of variety each night.

We found that the packets did ‘lack substance’ a bit and we would have one packet each.  We also found that the ‘Look what we found‘ meals did have a very long shelf life (6+ months).  So much so that over 50% of what we packed for the failed trip to Morocco in March 2012 we will be taking with us in the October.

We did not rule out the possibility of eating locally when possible and we would supplement the list below with fresh bread (for me) and fresh fruit for breakfasts and lunches.

Where we have tried them and it’s applicable we have rated the taste out of 10.
