MY RECENT TRAIL SNACKS
My trip into the Palisades in the California Sierra involved a very BIG day of almost none stop movement. Sometimes you plan these days out well in advance, sometimes it’s a spur of the moment trip. As we packed, I grabbed some easy win trail snacks.
This was the breakdown for 1 really long day with a short effort the following day (7-mile trail hike). In summary:
|Epic Meat Sticks||110||4||440|
|Patagonia Fruit & Nut||120||1||120|
This lasted me the day with some to spare for the hike out. However, what isn’t pictured and wasn’t budgeted for was the extra boost from some bacon shared by my partner! You know you are in the mountains with the right type of partner if they will share some of their bacon rations. As a result, I actually had a bit too much food leftover:
|Epic Meat Sticks||110||2||220|
|Patagonia Fruit and Nut||120||1||120|
Normally I wouldn’t have any meat sticks leftover but with the altitude some more lighter carbs and pressed fruit really hit the spot. I’m not trying to be on the carnivore diet it’s just that salt, fat, and protein are so important for long days.
