"Olive oil is the way to cram in the good fats."
But it doesn't go very well with granola. I use both at different times of the day.
A little bit of satuirated fat for a few days isn't going to harm a normal, healthy, highly active human being in the backcountry.
"Milk is for fun"
Nah. A good single malt is for fun. ;)
"As for the Nido fans, have you ever actually tried Milkman? It tastes sooo much better."
Milkman was all I ever used until it disappeared from the shelves. In the interim, I discovered Nido and have never looked back. More calories and, IMO, better flavor.
Admittedly, taste is highly individual and each person will have their preference, but it certainly isn't a slam dunk in favor of Milkman. I don't worry about the saturated fat in an ounce of Nido/day on a backpacking trip, with a cholesterol reading typically in the 170's and an HDL to total cholesterol to HDL ratio below 3. YMMV
