Thanks, Sarah. That's very gracious of you to say about a competitor!
I have your book, and have gone through it multiple times; it's a little like getting the right shoes, though, everyone is unique. I personally don't like a lot of cheese or veggies, so have to load up on the veggies I'm comfortable eating. I want things dead simple, and will likely try to figure out N unique meal types for my PCT attempt, where N won't be a terribly large number, and will likely include some Mountain House meals mailed ahead --- the rest needing to come from what I can buy in trail towns.
So I reckon that the more ideas I can look at, the better. Of course, I could just drink olive oil for every meal, and call that a "mediteranean diet" !
