Default favorite backpacking food

hard to name just one. But there'd best be some cheese or chocolate in it or on it.

So let's make a list of the top backpacking foods

Gorp (should have m and m's in them)
CHEESE (preferably cheddar)
tortellini, mac n cheese
crackers and cheese
HOT CHOCOLATE is a must for evenings and early morning breakfast
most any Lipton Side especially if there 's some graded cheese either in the mix or added to it.
Snickers bars (snickers are what gets you over those hills!)
Milky way bars will do in a pinch
Ramen Noodles are good to add into lipton sides to thicken them up

I've been trying various foods to prepare for the AT next year. Last week I tried cous cous. Instant gag response, I'll have to try other stuff.
I found I like the flavored Creme of Wheats, the original Creme of Wheat I have to add brown sugar to. Only catch with them is I didn't want to take the time to heat water in the AM. I run every morning without eating, that's what I want to do on the trail, go an hour or so before eating, then eat cold.
I like some of the Clif bars. I also tried Bonk bars which I liked a lot, but man are they expensive.
Mac n cheese could prove important.
My wife says Ramen Noodles are a repository of salt which with my high BP could be problematic.
I might give instant potatoes a shot. I love potatoes in all forms, but I don't know if instant will hack it.

Ramen noddles are great mixed into instant mashed potatoes. I'll also add a huck of cheese and let it melt in for flavor. Or I'll add a packet of sauce from a fast food resturant. Then you don't have to use the seasoning pack thats full of salt that came with the noodles.

i don't eat ramen as there is nothing healthy at all about them, however, you can avoid much of the sodium by not using the flavoring packet.

check your bp a couple months into your hike. it almost certainly will be down, the question is how much.

I dehydrate spaghetti with sausage and sauce and then do FBC. Great meal on a cool evening.
