I am fishing for three nights worth of food and eating oatmeal and dried fruits for breakfast. Lunches will probably be trail mix, energy bars, and tuna/chicken with soy sauce in those foil packages.
Right on man, 10 days is a long stretch without a resupply and I applaud you supplementing 3 days worth of food with the fish you catch. That is way more hardcore than anything I did on the entire PCT.
I am just going to tell you what I eat and maybe something catches your eye that will work out for you, good luck.
I add, brown sugar and maple syrup to the oats.
Meat sangwich with cheese on an everything bagel w/mustard (single packets)
Buddigs single serve meats - honey ham & honey roasted turkey
Block of cheddar
Dinner: (remove the dinner from the Mountainhouse packaging and put in a zip-lock freezer bag)
Mountainhouse freeze dried meals - Chili mac w/beef, Beef stroganoff, and spaghetti w/meat sauce.
I add 1/2 cup of instant rice, 2tbs of olive oil and salt & pepper (1100 calories approx)
1/2 Toblerone bar (6 triangles)
Snacks during the day:
2 Almond Snickers bar (most calories & fat for the weight)
1 Chocolate chip granola bar
Peanut and jelly on a whole wheat tortilla
Goldfish and almonds mixed
Happy trails dude.
