Did anyone mention Hummus mix? Easy to add water and a bit of olive oil and put on any type of cracker or bread.
For Protein ... I use a Whey Protein drink ... good breakfast starter and good for that before bed protein snack. Just add cold water, mix and drink.
I recently discovered Minute brown rice. It is cooked, dried brown rice. It requires very little cooking time if you soak it prior to cooking. If you don't soak it first it takes 7 min cooking time. It combines very well with Spice Islands dried black bean soup ( dried soup in a cup that I take out of the cup and dump in a baggie). This is also already cooked and dried. Cook the two together and you have a very hearty soup/stew. Spice islands also makes a yummy curried lentil soup( combine with the rice or Nor'east's cous cous), dried, cooked, just add water and heat.
my eating might be kind of wierd, but I usually allow myself one dehydrated per week.
Other than that -- here are things I take & like
instant mashed potato packets (I eat the whole 2 or 4 servings myself)
ramen noodles, yeah, i know
peanut butter in a tube on rice cake
fast cooking rice -- a little weighty but a nice change, adding
seasoning, tomato paste, cheese or whatever
packets of tuna - yes, some weight, but the wetness is so delicious sitting on top of a mountain
you just climbed
because of the fuel it takes to cook, I look for things that cook fast or things
that just need the hot water dumped on them.
reading the grocery store boxes, you figure out what is instant and what has to simmer 7 minutes
or 15 minutes (and I stay away from those)
there isn't a great deal of nutrition in some of this stuff -- I try to balance things out
if you can find pepperoni that doesn't require refrigeration -- a couple of slices with anything are a treat
sometimes my lunches are light -- a bag of honey-peanuts matched with dried apples (the least salty of the dried fruits)
Peanut Butter and Kashi Go Lean Cereal ... don't even need bread. And lots of water to wash it down with, I like to add the pedialyte in the serving size pouches or Energen C to my water.
