Greenbelly Meals About Us - Who We Are

Who We Are


We are using whole foods to create the most nutritionally balanced and ready-to-eat backpacking meal on the planet.


I quit my accounting job back in 2012 to pursue a two year adventure. 10,000 miles backpacking through Asia doing everything from teaching English in Thailand to volunteering at an orphanage in Cambodia. Then a 3,000 mile bicycle tour of New Zealand. And finally, 6 months hiking the 2,185 miles long Appalachian Trail... a dream of mine since I became an Eagle Scout.

Nutrition was a constant struggle. On the road, getting a proper balance of nutrients required extensive preparation and meal planning. Fast food was unhealthy, fresh fruit was perishable, protein bars weren't filling and cooking was messy and time consuming.

Creating the perfect backpacking meal became my mission.

After working with a food scientist and sampling countless recipes, Greenbelly was born in 2014. We now have three tasty flavors in a convenient, non-cook, meal bar form. Using all natural ingredients, each meal provides a balanced ⅓ of your DV for six core nutrients: Calories, Carbs, Fats, Fiber, Sodium and Protein. Yes!

We are proud to provide this fast-packing and balanced meal to other long-distance backpackers, hikers, cycle tourists, climbers... and any other crazy outdoor adventurers.

Hope you enjoy 'em and safe hiking,

Chris Cage, Founder
