Vegan outdoor enthusiasts.
Outdoor enthusiasts with a lactose allergy or gluten intolerance know how difficult it is: in the middle of nowhere during a multi-day hiking trip, obtaining hot food that your body does not react to incorrectly and that is so light that you can easily carry it in your backpack. For a long time makers of compact, freeze-dried trekking meals had little regard for the vegans among their audience, but those days are now over. The Canadian brand Nomad offers a whole range of complete dehydrated vegan meals, such as KATHMANDU CURRY, IRISH SHEPHERD’S PIE, INDIAN RED LENTIL STEW or HUNGARIAN GOULASH. Also, all regular meals (there are 6 in total) are lactose-free anyway. All you have to do is open the bag, add boiling water (from thermos or fire), stir, and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
The big difference with other trekking meal manufacturers is that the ingredients are not freeze-dried separately and then packaged as a meal. Nomad first prepares a nutritious dish with 100% natural ingredients in its kitchens, then moisturizes or dries it. This special process ensures a shelf life of two years, without the use of artificial preservatives or extra salt. And it must be said: you can taste that. The “INDIAN RED LENTIL STEW” that we tried out is highly recommended with a powerful, pure taste, which has a real Indian feel.
A Nomad standard portion costs $ 9.99 for a 2-pack. The meals are for sale at Amazon, more information can be found on the Nomad website.
