With fall finally here, I’ve pulled out all of my coziest sweaters and am ready to embark on some local outdoor adventures. From day hiking trips or weekend camping (read: glamping) trips, there is some prep involved. But lucky for you, our Spoon HQ team put our heads together to come up with the ultimate packing list for all of your outdoor escapades, and of course, it centers around food. So get ready to pack up and have a delicious, and totally ‘Gramable, outdoor experience.

Food & Drink -

Doing really anything outside can work up an appetite. So no matter what outdoor adventure you’re planning, make sure you’re stocked with whatever you can carry. Pro Tip: with Tasty Bite Organic & all-natural products, you can bring flavor to the trail with their ready to eat entrees and rice. They can be eaten as is or heated up over a campfire in a pot or in a cast iron pan.
