No Cook Food Nutition Spreadsheet

                                                                                                                 –

I officially decided that with the number of forest fires already occurring in California and the potential fuel bans, I would go stoveless. This means no cooked food (except for stops at resupplies that have hot food) for 16 days. I once ate peanut butter and jelly 3x a day for a whole summer at a summer camp because the food was so bad. I think I’ll survive.

The benefit of going stoveless is not having to carry the weight of a stove, fuel, bowl, etc. I also don’t have to clean dishes in the backcountry. I’m in.

I have been testing all the food I am thinking about taking and soon I’ll be spending a few nights in the woods to get in some big miles and create my meals. I want to make sure I’ll be properly fueled for those passes on the JMT!

You may be wondering what I’ll be eating if I’m not carrying the typical Mountain House meals. My meals will consist of a lot of Nutella (yum!) and really anything you can stick in a tortilla. I love granola so I will be eating a lot of that with dehydrated whole milk in the morning. I will be bringing dried fruits to munch on as well. Lunch will usually consist of snacking throughout the day on trail mix and bars which is usually what I eat for lunch on the trail. I will also make some instant potatoes and refried beans. I like them both cold. Oils will add fats and calories to these foods as well as tuna. Below is a spreadsheet of many of the foods I will be bringing as well as a comparison of the most common nuts.

I will soon be adding supplements such as Gu and Shot Blocks/Gels.

    I’ve been giving this some thought. It’s a great way to simplify thing and shave some weight I just don’t know if I could go without the java!

    How about adding some chia seeds as well? they are light in weight and have high nutritional value – don’t have to cook them at all
