Vegan and Vegetarian Foods for Hiking and Camping

Campers and hikers need foods that are healthy, lightweight, do not spoil, and do not cost too much.

The foods should also provide healthy carbs, protein, fats, and electrolytes to make up for a long day of hiking.

Good vegetarian camping foods include dried foods, nuts, and canned foods. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables when possible is also good, but not practical for longer trips.

The list below gives suggestions for healthy and inexpensive hiking and camping foods for vegans and vegetarians.
