Plan and prep at home If you organize everything before you go, you'll eat better and faster (important when you've been hiking). Cross-utilize your groceries by building leftovers into your meal plans. For instance, save bacon fat from breakfast to fry potatoes for dinner. Make sure you keep the fat, and all your food, away from animals. Invest in a camp Dutch oven You can use it for everything from frying an egg to boiling water and, best of all, it has little legs so you can set the pot right over coals–no flat surface needed. Keep things at least semiclean with antibacterial wipes, hand sanitizer, or a spray bottle of bleach solution (1 tbsp. bleach in 1 qt. water).
