The New Primal Sea Salt Beef Thins ($4)

Made with just five ingredients—grass-fed beef, organic coconut amino acids, garlic powder, onion powder, and sea salt—these bites make a delicious post-run snack, helping to replenish depleted salt and protein stores. One bag has 13 grams of protein and only a single gram of fat.

Picky Oats Performance Oatmeal ($3)

It’s possible we love this Bend, Oregon, company’s oatmeal even more than its signature energy bars. The single-portion pouches are high in fiber, low in sugar, and filled with organic, gluten-free ingredients like beetroot powder, matcha green tea, and chia seeds.

Patagonia Provisions Lemon Pepper Wild Sockeye Salmon ($14)

Before you knock fish from a pouch, give this salmon a try. At only six ounces, it’s a light and easy way to elevate backcountry cooking: a few pieces drastically improved Top Ramen and mac and cheese.

Nuun Immunity Tablets ($7)

These effervescent tabs contain ingredients that are chock-full of phytonutrients—the chemicals found in plants that ward off germs and other threats—including turmeric, ginger, elderberry, and echinacea. A tablet a day kept us healthy through multiple cross-country flights (and too many missed connections).
