Canoe Portage Trip – Weekly Menu

An extended canoe portage trip / backpacking trip does NOT mean you have to eat less than delicious meals!  We have done many of these trips over the years and people we take with us rave about how well we eat at every meal.  All it takes is a little planning and a trip to the grocery store.  The menu below is a typical menu from our canoe portage trips to Canada and the Adirondacks for a week at a time. (Always pack one extra meal in case something unforeseen delays your exit home… been there, done that…)

(See my other posts and checklists for these types of outdoor adventures for helpful tips!  We have our trips “down to a science” when it comes to planning and preparation… but you can also plan for the unexpected challenge to occur.  We have had our share of “making the best of  less than ideal situations” but have always survived with a little ingenuity.)
