I'll be away from a kitchen and will have limited fridge space for four days-- I need things I don't need to heat up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Because of wildlife and disposing issues, sardines and those deliciously smelly fish are out. My biggest concern is protein. HELP!!!

Thanks! I'm definitely looking into jerky. The additives are my biggest concern with it-- I wonder what the most natural brand is?

Thanks! Totally forgot about fish packets; I don't think they're too smelly.

If you're planning on doing multi-day hikes regularly, I'd recommend picking up a dehydrator. I got my Nesco American Harvest 80 on amazon for $60 and have probably already saved $10-$15 just in the batches of jerky I've made at home, as opposed to having to buy specialty gluten-free jerky. It also allows you to dehydrate whole meals (totally Paleo) and pack them in, then eat them even on the later days of a multi-day trip without having to worry about spoilage. Definitely a time investment up front to figure it out and learn how to work with dried food, but absolutely worth it in the end :)

I second Nuts and Jerky. Also, take a look in stores for tuna/salmon packets. Idk if they are too smelly for you, but I typically take 10+ packets with me on field ops.

Nuts, and jerky or pemmican are good protein options
