Tired of gorp, cereal bars, and beef jerky? Would you instead like to dine on spaghetti, chicken salad, and cheesecake in the backcountry? Now you can. Lipsmackin' Backpackin' is your guide to essential eating on the trail. A new kind of outdoor cookbook, this all-in-one food guide is filled with trail-tested recipes providing at-home preparation directions, on-the-trail preparation directions (including a special take-along section), nutritional information, the number of servings each recipe will produce, and the weight the ingredients will add to your backpack. You'll also get food preparation and meal-planning tips from experienced long-distance hikers. And once you have chosen your favorite recipes, mastered your outdoor cooking skills, and are ready for a hike, consult the back of this book for information on America's National Scenic and Historic Trails.Conners, Christine is the author of 'Lipsmackin' Backpackin' Lightweight, Trail-Tested Recipes for Extended Backcountry Trips' with ISBN 9781560448815 and ISBN 1560448814.
