By request I am posting this thread.
In preparation for my hike I am eating trail food at home for all my meals.
Today: breakfast: I had a small cupful of of granola with dehydrated Milk
Lunch: Nile Spices Red Beans and Rice Soup. 200 calories. 4 oz weight. Very nice flavor, and easy, just add water to cup and let sit for a few minutes. Grade A. Price $1.25
Dinner: Nissin Spicy Chicken Chow Mein Noodles. Comes in a microwaeable tray. I just added water and prepacked spice packets. 560 calories. 4oz weight.
Very tasty and spicy. Lots of calories per ounce. Grade A++. Price $1.09
I will definately look for the latter two items on the trail, and am rethinking my relationship with dehydrated milk. Looking for easier and lighter breakfast items as I mostly favor bagels.
