Campers and hikers need foods which 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 you get a chance is also good, but not practical for longer trips.
The list below gives some suggestions for healthy and cheap hiking and camping foods for vegans and vegetarians.
