So. I'm going hiking - and I have to hike 7-10 days between resupply points, and I want a hot calorieful tasty gruel that I can eat 3x a day from a jetboil, yet dress up with mix-ins when I get to resupply. I plan to carry butter and PB for mixing in regularly. I'm also carrying a tiny antique pan that I can use to fry this stuff into "pancakes" on the occasions when I have a camp-fire.
I plan to stir in beef jerky (gross but works), nuts, cheese, powdered cheese, maybe crunched-up kale-chips, crunched up tortilla chips, dried fruit, M+Ms, cayenne, more coffee (those international super-sweet creamy ones you find in tins) or hot chocolate, and probably things I haven't even thought of yet (and will be horrified when I recall later....).
I will also be carrying broth blocks and dried vegis, yerba mate, and coffee for variety.
I wanted a crunchy texture (thank you chia!), required nutrients and vitamins, and versatile but not tasteless on it's own. I went heavy but not overboard on the salt and the potassium salt-replacement because I know from previous experience with keto that for some reason I feel like I can't ever eat enough salt and I suspect hiking will exacerbate that effect!
Lets hope I don't get sick of it :-)
Still plan to add a source of vit k and maybe calcium, likely something found at Trader Joe's or Costco.
