I don't cook when hiking. Check out ProBars (abt 10 flavors now), &
SoyaKass soy cheese (abt 5 flavors now & keeps unopened outside a fridge or
freezer for up to a month) online; you might be able to use them. Buy SoyaKass
by the case, for a possible discount, from your local health food or grocery
store; buy ProBars by the case at REI, for a 20% discount.
People think ProBars, now abt $3.40 ea, are expensive; I eat two for
dinner, my last couple hours of hiking each day; a good backpacking dinner,
AlpineAire being the only tasty & certainly healthiest brand
IMHButHighlyAccurateO, costs the same $7. SoyaKass comes in 12 oz blocks; I eat 4 oz per day,
as a snack; that costs me abt $2.50 probably.
I also eat 1/2 cup trail mix daily, Extreme by Kettle (yes, the chip
people), IMHBHAO the best, which you should also be able to use. Sorry, my 1
Clif Bar, 1 other bar, & 1 cup granola each day won't help you.
For further ?s, email me off-list.

Hi all! I love the food discussion and enjoyed Erik the Black's blog
post about junk food. I'm looking at a thru hike in 2011, and have
had a monkey wrench in my trail diet in the last few years. I was
diagnosed with celiac disease which means I'm gluten intolerant and
can't eat anything with wheat, barley, rye, or oats. Unfortunately
that means I can't partake of the pancake challenge or belly up to the
pizza bar in South Lake Tahoe. In fact it really complicates a lot of
things. It is heartening to know that there are people out there who
exist on Snickers though! Snickers are completely gluten free (as are
several other candy bars--almost all energy bars have gluten in them.
Larabar is an exception, but they only have about 120 calories each as
they are primarily made of dates... I need more calories for the
weight, and a little fat would be good too). I was diagnosed after my
thru-hike of the Colorado Trail where I used ramen stuffed with just
about everything... now it is a whole new ball game.
Does anyone know any long distance hikers who are gluten intolerant?
I'd love to talk to them.
