How to make your foodstuff last longer
One of the challenges when being away from a kitchen and fridge for a few days is to keep the food fresh. But don't stress, there are quite a few things you can do to make your foodstuff last longer.
When choosing meat, go for cured meat or bacon and spiced smoked sausages. These contain either more salt or are smoked or dried and thus, will last longer.
Freeze your meat before putting it in the cooler. To keep it frozen for longer make sure to marinate it beforehand as the marinade will act as a cooling block.
Make sure to eat your fresh food during the first days.
Vacuum package your foodstuff will prolong the life of most ingredients.
Choose your ingredients. Pick cabbage and kale instead of fresh salad leafs for your salad. They will last for weeks and are great for salads.
Bring dried food. You can buy both dried vegetables, mushrooms and meat in the stores. But it's also quite easy to dry your own food.
Bring egg and milk powder instead of fresh, and use oil instead of butter.
Bring dense bread like bagels and tortillas as they will last longer.
Mix dry ingredients for bread and pancakes and add water on the spot to splurge with some freshly baked bread or breakfast pancakes.
