30 days worth of backpacking food
As I pack my food for my month-long backpacking trip in Oregon I can't ignore the numerous and blatant nutrition violations. I sacrifice the fresh for the packaged and the heavy for the light - all in the name of less weight and fewer complications on the trail. Any food that is fresh or includes even a small bit of water is out. Chocolate covered things, like zone and balance bars, melt into a mass of goo quickly - those are out too. I also don't like to be bothered with too much prep, so fancy backpacking recipes aren't on my list either. I stick to the processed, carb heavy basics as seen in this picture. Its only a month, and its the price I pay to see the beautiful places of the wilderness that you can't reach in a car.
Looking at all of this food (and dreading its consumption) renews, with gusto, my appreciation for living in Santa Cruz, a place where local, organic produce is readily available. Where I can visit farmers markets twice a week, purchase delicious things at several organically minded grocery stores, and dine at a plethora of nutritionally conscious restaurants... Ah Santa Cruz... we are so fortunate.
