I have recently developed dairy intolerance (even butter) and am sort of at a loss for ideas for food to eat while camping.
It seems that all (or majority, at least) the dehydrated packaged meals have cheese in it.
I would appreciate any ideas so that I don't have to be bloated all my hiking trip  Undecided

P.S. I do not mind spending hours pre-preparing those meals before setting off into the Rockies in June ...yippee!

Thanks for help!

Hi, I've hiked a ton as a vegan... I was going for super lightweight so I ate the same things over and over, but here are a couple of ideas:

breakfast - instant oatmeal packets, some flavors don't have dairy or there are ones that are just sweetened
lunch - I pretty much lived off of tortillas with peanut butter and raisins or craisins for lunch.  I'd buy the half-size jar of peanut butter for shorter trips, longer trips I just take a whole jar.  Also good to just eat a spoonful of pb for a snack.
dinner- REI/EMS/outdoors stores usually have a few dehydrated meals that are vegan/dairyfree.  all of them that I've had have been yummy.  Another idea is the instant couscous that comes with a flavor packet, a few of them are vegan.  Instant hummous or tabouli maybe?  I tried instant black beans and didn't so much like them - it felt like eating a brick. 
snacks - some granola bars are dairy free - try the weird health brand ones, clif or luna bars are dairy free, nuts/trailmix can be made with whatever you want and also can make a good lunch/breakfast if you eat enough of it.  I usually take a some dark chocolate bars so I have a dessert as well. 

I tried some freezedried fruits and veggies, but they got stale/softish after a few days, so if it you're only out a couple of days they are super lightweight and can add a nice touch to something like a couscous.

Hope that helps some.  I don't cook much when I hike, as I usually go out for weeks backpacking so it is limited to what I can make with boiled water!
