17 June 2014 (Day 104) – I get plenty of carbohydrates on the trail. Pop Tarts, candy bars, granola are typical fare. Protein is far more difficult to pack but I eat a half jar of peanut butter per day and so much tuna I’m practically a thermometer. Fruits and vegetables weight too much and are only eaten in towns.
I’ve had my fill of beef jerky except for the Steve Paleo (stevespaleogoods.com) versions sent to me by my friend Debbie Monahan (thanks again, Deb!). Their unique jerky flavors are mixed with sweet fruits and nuts; not your typical dried meat. Helps tremendously with rebuilding my depleted muscles. I’m not a shill for the company, just a fan.
