    Oatmeal for breakfast that I pre-mix in protein powder to get a little more out of my lightweight breakfast. Snacks, usually Larabars, Cliff bars, Wilderness Athlete bars, and a homemade trailmix, with added jerky. Lunch, peanut butter, bacon and honey sandwiches...Cameron Hanes style!!! Usually a mix between a bagel version and a wheat bread version. Dinner, Mountain House meals, look for the ones with a good combo of protein.

    Another good lunch idea I've tried out this year is the individual tuna packs already mixed with relish and mayo. Wheat thin crackers to scoop it up with. They take up very little room in a pack.
    something to add about the gatorade or other drink mix, don't put them in your bladder. The sugar molds in the tube and is a major pain to clean out.
    Pretty cocky for a starvin pilgram...

    I never did the EmergenC but I know of guy's that do. The gatorade just taste better and as long as you leave it watered down just a tad it really makes a HUGE difference during a hard day of walking around. Also like was already stated, don't put it in your bladder it could lead to excess mold growth. Best to use a plastic water bottle or something similar.

    My hunting partner used the tuna packs last year and said they were pretty good. I may try those this year too.

    Good post... I like using a rinsed out mountain house pouch for my instant oatmeal and I fold it up and reuse it after rinsing out again... Also like carnation hot cocoa powdered mix with a little hot water... Lifts the spirits... Mix it up with a pouch of spam with dinner and that tastes really good too...

    Used mountain house bag's make good oatmeal bowls and Carnation hot choclate powdered mix makes for a good spirit lifter when it's cold n wet out! I also like pouch spam for something a little different to mix it up!

    I used the Cliff Shot Blocks in a recent bike race in which I was riding with the owner/ founder of Cliff Bar for most of the way. They are tasty and convenient, but not as good as GU pouches when it comes to keeping your carb count up. Other than that, I eat about the same things as you listed. Cinnamon raisin bagels are good, they are dense and hold quite a few nutrients. Nuts are good for protein. Cooked rice in bags is light, carries a lot of carbs, and fills you up since it swells in your stomach.

    If your going to bring in powdered anything for drinking, I think its best to use a recovery type drink like Nuun. I use it after long bike training workouts and it really does help you recover.
