“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.”A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
"Yak burger - best meat I’ve ever eaten."Dylan
Meal planning should start with the same good meal planning you have at home. That is, think through how you work the five food groups into your daily diet. However as your trips lengthen you need to be increasing the amount of carbohydrates in your fuel load - rice and pasta meals are important. But these can require lots of water to prepare so water availability becomes a planning consideration.
Your average one or two day walk probably does not require too much planning. But more lengthy excursions require some thought and planning. For example, 100g of drink additive becomes 1kg of weight if you are walking for 10 days. If you are 10 days on the Kokoda Track that 1kg might seem like a lot of weight. On the other hand, is 100g a day enough?
