After a long day of climbing or hiking, cooking is usually the last thing on my mind. I’ve been known to scarf down a backpacking meal or heat up a Fishpeople Seafood pouch to avoid the hassle of prepping and cleaning. Great Grub Camp Food makes gourmet camp food easy, without the hassle. Each entree has the convenience of a freeze dried meal with a little extra that’s more than just boiling hot water.

From camp dinners to nights where you can’t be bothered rummage through your fridge to form an acceptable meal, there’s Fishpeople Seafood. I’ve praised the awesomeness of Fishpeople Seafood before. And today, I’m praising them again.
Backcountry meals don’t always have to be freeze dried meals in pouches. In fact, you can get high protein, gluten-free, sustainably caught, and locally grown and absolutely tasty meals where you don’t even have to add water. How? By eating Fishpeople Seafood.
With a mission of harvesting only sustainable seafood, Fishpeople Seafood helps support local communities and fisheries to ensure healthy fish populations for years to come. This detail and attention to the product ensures that you know exactly who caught your fish and where it came from. You can even track your food with the code on the back of your pouch. All ingredients are sourced locally and each product lists out the ingredients in painstaking detail.
Straw Propeller takes that age-old instant oatmeal and adds their own gourmet twist to make this breakfast staple more enjoyable and fun. My first try with the company was with the Apple Crisp, and boy, was that tasty.
The Cherry & Chia wasn’t quite what I was expecting from the company. Apple Crisp was incredibly sweet and dessert-like, and that was what I was hoping for. The Cherry & Chia was a lot more tart without the extra sweet overload. The chia seeds were a nice touch; I’m a huge fan of getting my fair share of omega-3 fatty acids. However, coming off of the sweet, sweet, gooey, white chocolate-y goodness that was the Apple Crisp, I was a little let down. So, if you’re not a fan of getting a sugar rush during breakfast, this is definitely for you!
Each serving comes in a little cardboard container convenient to make and mess-free. Just add water, wait, eat and throw away. If you’re looking to save space while backpacking, the containers aren’t for you, but they’re great for car camping. I might even stock my pantry with these for a fast and easy breakfast.
Buy through Straw Propeller for $39 for a pack of 12. You can buy a one flavor pack of 12 or mix and match.
