Bushka’s Kitchen has created a line of hearty freeze-dried Carnivore meals that are packed with protein and unbelievably filling. A warm trailside meal after a hard day of hiking is revitalizing, and that’s doubly so when the food is both delicious and substantial.
The Bushka’s Kitchen Carnivore line consists of three backpacking meals that are loaded with venison, bison, and wild boar. They’re each among the brand’s best-selling meals, and for good reason—they have the flavor, nutrition, and substance a hungry hiker needs to fuel themselves for the miles ahead.
And to ensure that the quality of each of these meals is top-notch, Bushka’s Kitchen remains involved in every step of the process. The game meat and all other ingredients are sourced from local family farms and ranches where everything is then sent to Bushka’s Kitchen to get cooked, seasoned, freeze-dried, and packaged for delivery to your doorstep.
Unique Features of Bushka’s Kitchen Freeze-Dried Meals
The term “nutritionally-balanced meal” isn’t usually part of a hiker’s vocabulary. Whether you’re pitching your tent at a roadside campground or beneath a remote copse of alpine trees beneath a starlit sky, your fireside diet is likely to be, shall we say, lacking in nutrients—a distant echo of what a balanced and healthy meal should look like.
Bushka’s Kitchen is looking to change that. The company was created by adventure seekers, and they were all too aware of the poor quality food that most campers and backpackers have accepted as the norm for far too long.
By crafting an array of gourmet, yet affordable freeze-dried meals, Bushka’s Kitchen has made it easy to make the switch to better tasting, more filling, and more nutritious backcountry food.
The Carnivore Line of Meals
While Bushka’s Kitchen does offer multiple plant-based meals, we’re especially excited about the Carnivore line which includes Hunter’s Pie with Ground Venison, Unstuffed Pepper with Ground Bison, and the Hearty Harvest Bowl with Wild Boar.
Meat eaters rejoice—these Carnivore meals hit the spot. Featuring large hunks of ground meat, each of these hefty dinners has as much muscle-rejuvenating protein as a protein shake with anywhere from 19 to 33 grams in each meal.
That’s not to say that they’ll weigh you down, because the Carnivore line also features plentiful vegetables, grains, and aromatic herbs to fill you up without leaving you feeling stuffed like a turkey.
Hitting the scales at around 4 ounces each, even the ultralight crowd will want to dig into these Carnivore meals. They’re as good as home-cooked food after soaking in hot water for a few minutes (if not better), but, if you prefer to travel stoveless, you can rehydrate the meals with cold water as well.
