Breadcrumb Trail

Ah, spring! The time when flowers begin

to blooming, when an abundance of fresh

produce becomes available to us, and when

we come out of our winter hibernation to get outdoors

again. Is there anything better than camping with some

friends in the wilderness, surrounded by nature? Before

hitting the trails or the campsite, there are a number of

measures to take into account in order to ensure a fun,

and most importantly – safe experience. Our adventures

into the great outdoors can impact the very environment

we traverse. Worry not, Whole Foods Market has your

back covered! From the best trail snacks, to the proper

storage setup, we’ll walk you through your path in the

woods, all with the greenest thumb.

iking thousands of miles without a break takes

a lot of energy. That means food, and lots of it.

Watching thru-hikers feed has quickly become

a yearly pastime for people who live near long trails.

When it comes to thru-hiking food planning, there are

both practical considerations and the specific macro

and micro nutritional needs. Together, we’ll talk

about the thru-hiker mindset when it comes to trail

food, how that is different than a typical backpacker’s

mindset, and what we can do to get you started!


How much food should I pack for a thru-hike?

First, let’s get this out of the way: Thru-hikers

typically don’t carry more than 10 days of food at a

time, if that. In that way, a thru-hike is like a series

of back-to-back backpacking trips. That said, your

nutritional needs will be greater than on a typical day

on a backpacking trip. For most people, walking 15

or 20 miles on a day hike merits a big meal afterward.

For example, when starting a thru-hike, hikers will

only carry 1.5 pounds of food per day. By the end of a

2,000-mile hike, it may be up to 3 pounds per day.

A guide to thru-hiking diet

and meal preparation

WHAT ABOUT Food preparation on a thru-hike?

On a backpacking trip, it’s fun to bring along fresh

ingredients and do an on-trail cookout with friends.

At the end of the day, thru-hikers are often hungry

and exhausted. It just becomes easier to add hot

water to something and eat. This may not be the most

glamorous way to eat, but it ends up being a reality for

many thru-hikers. Let’s see what Whole Foods

Market can do to prepare you for your journey!

hiker hunger, as it’s called—an insatiable desire

for calories and fat—is considered an inescapable

part of long-distance hiking. But Lee

Welton, a physical therapy assistant and personal

trainer who runs Trailside Fitness, an online resource

providing health and wellness training for hikers, says

it doesn’t have to be.

During a 2018 thru-hike of the PCT, “neither my

wife Sarah nor I had hiker hunger,” Welton says. “We

felt pretty content for most of the trail.” The couple

was deliberate about what they ate—whole foods,

little processed sugar, and as many fruits, nuts and

vegetables as possible.


“A lot of hikers think it’s Halloween and eat candy all

the time,” Welton says. “The body burns it off, but

it’s not getting what it needs to repair and refuel.” All

of that processed sugar has no vitamins, proteins or

vital minerals that are essential to keeping your body

fit. Welton says post-trail depression, another issue

among long-distance hikers, might be worsened by a

poor diet because low-quality foods can disrupt gut

bacteria, which some scientists believe could be tied

to mental health. For the day or weekend hiker, a

few days of poor eating may seem benign. But Katie

Gerber, a nutritionist and holistic health coach, says

even a day of hiking and fueling up with poor food

can result in negative impacts.

“When you’re only eating high sugar and processed

carbs, your blood sugar will spike and crash, causing

you to crave more sugar and repeat that cycle,” Gerber

says, who has logged thousands of miles on long

trails. “It’s like you’re on a roller coaster all day long.

Anyone who has been through that knows it’s not a

fun experience.” Eating better quality foods on the

trail, Gerber says, can lead to more consistent energy

and a more enjoyable experience—plus, she says it’s

better for your overall health.

So what should you eat on the trail?

Gerber says she considers four main aspects: calorie

density, nutrient density, affordability and accessibility.

That includes healthy fats like olive oil or

coconut oil, which can be added to plenty of meals,

but also nut butter, like peanut or almond butter, and

dark chocolate. The posssibilities are endless!

Produce like fresh apples and oranges can be heavy,

but are good treats that can be consumed on the first

few days of a trip. Fresh spinach—high in calcium

and potassium—goes well with dehydrated veggies,

mushrooms, onions and garlic.

Welton admits that cravings for food like pizza and

hamburgers are normal, and he and Sarah would, at

times, indulge in those during their thru-hike. “But we

had a salad and kombucha first to feed our good gut

bacteria before we ate fries and drank beer!” Take a

trip to your local Whole Foods Market and pick up

everything you need to start your next adventure!

Campfire Apple Crisp!

This no-bake apple

crisp is designed to be

an afterthought of a

dessert. Something so simple

it’s hard to think of a reason

not to make it. So on your next

camping trip, treat yourself to

something sweet. The dishes

can wait – you’ve still got

dessert coming! What’s really

nice about this recipe is that it

uses a lot of common camping

ingredients: apples, granola,

cinnamon, brown sugar, and

bourbon. These are things

you might already be picking

up anyways and can be repurposed

to make dessert.


2-3 apples, sliced

1 tablespoon oil or butter

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

2 tablespoons bourbon

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup granola

2-3 apples, sliced

1 tablespoon butter


In an 8” or 10” cast iron skillet, over medium heat,

saute the sliced apples in a bit of oil or butter until

beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.

Add the spices, bourbon, and sugar, and stir to

combine. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens

and the apples are tender, 5-10 minutes.

Remove from the heat and sprinkle the granola

evenly across the top. Enjoy straight from the skillet!

Homemade Trail Mix


½ cup raw almonds

½ cup raw pecan halves

¼ cup unsweetened coconut chips

¼ cup pepitas, hulled pumpkin seeds

3 tablespoons maple syrup

¼ teaspoon sea salt

¼ cup chocolate chips▢

¼ cup dried cherries


Preheat the oven to 300F.

In a medium bowl, mix the almonds, pecans, coconut

chips, pepitas, maple syrup, and salt. Stir to evenly coat.

Spread the mixture on a lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Transfer trail mix to a clean bowl, add chocolate chips

and cherries.

Store in an airtight container.

Pie Iron Pizza Pockets!

Pizza Dough

▢2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

▢1 packet rapid rise yeast

▢2 teaspoons salt

▢1 cup warm water

▢2 tablespoons olive oil

In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, yeast, and salt.

Add the oil and water. Using a spoon, mix ingredients

until a dough forms. Add additional flour if it seems

too wet, then knead until a ball forms. Cover and let

rise 20 minutes, cozy up by the fire while you wait!

Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Working with two

pieces at a time, stretch and flatten the dough into

roughly 4 ½ x 4 ½ inch squares.

Oil the pie iron and press one square of dough into the

bottom plate. Load up your ingredients: 2 tablespoons

of sauce followed by the ¼ cup cheese, ¼ of the bell

pepper, 1 oz olives, and 4 pepperonis. Top with a

second square of dough. Close & lock the pie iron.


▢½ cup pizza sauce

▢1 cup shredded mozzarella

▢1 green bell pepper, diced

▢4 oz can sliced black olives

▢16 slices pepperoni


Cook over the fire or on top of your campfire embers

until the crust is golden brown, flipping as needed to

ensure even heat. Exact timing will be variable depending

on your campfire intensity, but generally, this will

only take 2-3 minutes. Check often!

Remove from the heat, then carefully unlock the pie

iron and turn the pizza pocket out.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Be mindful that

the iron will be HOT when prepping subsequent pizza

pockets. Wait until the iron has cooled, or take extreme

care when reloading the iron.


▢2 tablespoons olive oil

▢1 yellow onion, sliced

▢1 red bell pepper, sliced

▢1 poblano pepper, sliced

▢1 teaspoon salt

▢1 lb bratwurst

▢Sandwich rolls or buns

Cast Iron Brats


Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat on your

campfire grate (or camp stove). Add the oil, then the onions,

peppers, and salt. Cook for a few minutes until they

just begin to soften, then add the bratwurst, nestling them

into the vegetables so they come in contact with the skillet.

Turn the brats and stir the vegetables occasionally, until

the brats are cooked through (internal temp of 160°F),

15–20 minutes.

Remove from the heat and divide the brats and veggies

among the sandwich rolls.

Top with mustard and enjoy!

a statement of optimism.

how a little early morning

positivity can affect the

course of the day. While all

that can be said about most

types of pancakes, these

Banana Bread Pancakes

take things to the next level.

Like a warm loaf of banana

bread coming straight out

of the oven, these pancakes

offer a wave of comfort and

nostalgia with each bite.


3 bananas

banana, egg, and milk together. Add the dry ingredients

to the bowl and mix until well combined.

Heat a nonstick pan or well-seasoned cast iron

skillet on embers. Add a generous dab of butter and

swirl to coat the pan.

Pour ⅓a cup of the pancake batter into the center of

the skillet and scatter some of the chopped walnuts

on top. Using a spatula, flip the pancake and cook

the other side until golden.
