You just finished another great day on the bike. The sun sets as you roll into your campsite and the endorphins begin to wear off and now hunger starts to set in. The grumbling in your stomach signifies food is needed, NOW before you become “hangry”.
Rolling into camp dirty, happy, and extremely hungry is something most outdoor enthusiasts can relate to. It’s times like these where preparing a healthy and hearty meal from scratch may seem as difficult as the final push you made to get back to camp. When you are in this state of mind, you simply want to eat everything in the cooler that is readily available. However, you can find solace that there is a solution for this very dilemma. Enter the foil packet meal.
Thinking back to my younger years as a Boy Scout, I can remember using foil to cook meals over the glowing red coals of a campfire like it was just last weekend. Perhaps that’s because I have a sharp memory, but it’s more likely because on our last camping mission we used this method to quickly feed our hungry bodies after a long day of turning the pedals on some energy depleting single track.
