Trail Chef's Pro Tips: Pack Fresh Vegetables for the Trail

Think carrot sticks are just for school lunches? Then you clearly haven't enjoyed the transcendent crunch of raw veggies on the trail--a luxurious, healthy backwoods snack.

Celery
Rinse celery. Cut sticks into 4-5" lengths. Same as the carrots, pack in sandwich baggies lined with a folded, moistened (damp, not soaked) paper towel. Loosely fold top of bag to close.

This is an informative article. I am a strong advocate of eating vegetables and fruits. The concern that I have, though, is arduous backpacking trips or long strenuous day hikes often require for me consumption of foods with more "substance." Various assortments of nuts and other foods with high protein levels are consistent with added caloric intake needed for calories expended through gruesome and rigorous exercise adventures.
