my name is Irina, i am from Russia. In advance sorry for my english =)
I am very interested in what and how to eat hikers (backpacking-light-hikers) in other countries.
I noticed that you eat a lot of carbohydrates... and many other differents.
Let me give you an example of our Nutrition - trekking+mountaineering+boating about 2 weeks (sorry i use google translate, but i hope you understand me). I mean that the route was held on foot and in part on catamaran (boat) and 1 day climbing on the top about 2200 meters. All route about 190 miles. Two men.
Food weight about 18 oz per day per man. One gas bootle 16 oz, one gas stove.
Its not originally Lightweight backpacking, but its desire for it.
Nutrition consisted of:
groats 1,8 oz (buckwheat, rice, Hercules/oat-flakes) with desiccated milk, sugar, dried fruits, and cheese, and chokolate.
bread crumbs, jerky, something carbohydrates (chokolate, candy, sweetmeats and others), soup (dried vegetables and boiling water).
groats 3,2 oz with dried meat and roasted seeds (sunflower seend), jerky, halva (nuts paste).
what you think about it? =)
what nutrition you take, if you have taken this route?
It's the Sayan Mountains, south of Siberia. On the route was glasier (once). One climbing on the top 2180 meters.
