What would you do if you were stuck on a deserted island and there was nothing to eat but fish? Without any vegan emergency food. Would you still be vegan? What about being stuck on a mountain top or stranded in the woods on a camping trip gone wrong? Not to play out the tired argument against veganism, but it reminds me of the Simpsons episode when Lisa had to choose between sticking to her morals and possibly starve or take part in eating an animal’s flesh. Just what would a vegan do?
In a hurry? Here are our recommended Emergency Survival MRE Camping Backpacking Supplies to help you survive!
Vegan Emergency Food
Camping, hiking, and thriving in the adventurous outdoors does not have to include fishing, hunting, and trapping to enjoy your trip even if the most extreme emergency survival situations arise. Even in encountering natural disasters vegans can hold to their morals with a bit of planning.
Panic we wouldn’t! Prepare ahead of time, we would!
Your best bet is to check and prep your supplies ahead of time. It’s more than simply traveling, camping, and hiking; it’s doing it all vegan style from exploring and adventure to disaster preparedness.
Tips on preparing for emergencies as a vegan.
Pack some cans of fruits and veggies. How could you go wrong? Easy, cheap, and fully sealed until you need them, except it can become heavy carrying a dozen tin cans around and you still might need a can opener to get to your food. The LifeStraw is a personal water filter you may have heard of it would be a good idea to get one just in case you don’t have access to good drinking water. We also would recommend reading https://www.ready.gov/food for tips on cooking without power and food safety.
A better and more nutritious way to load up your gear for snacks, meals and even survival has come along. Freeze-dried vegetables and beans come in easy to take with you backpacking kits making grabbing a bite on your adventure that much easier. High protein, resealable pouches, non-GMO, gluten-free, and of course 100% vegan emergency food make these kits perfect for the hungry explorer. Premium dried foods make your backpack extra light for ease of travel. Also, it’s a good idea to research local edible foods you can forage for in the wild.

Looking for a little something more? Ready-made entrees or MREs (Meals Ready-to-Eat) are a no brainer when it comes to being prepared on your next long hike or camping trip. Vegan Indian meals? Yes, there’s an MRE for those craving more. Thai MRE? No problem! Cuban MRE? Bring it on! The vegan possibilities are growing in ready-made meals, snacks, energy bars and any basic take along with vegan foods for adventurers, hikers, explorers, even backyard campers.
And if you ever really do get stranded on a deserted island, if you’re prepared, you might be dining on Cuban rice and black beans or an Indian curry!
