Need food ideas

Heres a short list of items that I dont eat and never have. If I could stomach these things; it sure would make my life easier:

Those little glass jars with the miniature sausages

At this point in my life; I just cant do it.

Looking for ideas on food that is ready to eat(no meal prep) and at most requires no more then a cooler for storage.

I hate having to pack up my gear and leave the lake for lunch and dinner. I want to drive out there; park; and thats that for the day.

What kind of food items do you know of that are good to bring along to get you through the day?

Current setup-

Gusty/Stormy: Sting 1.7, 2.4, 3.3
Main: Hornet 2, 3, 4
Alternate: Flux 2, 3, 4, 5
Light Wind: Reactor 5.5 or JOJO 9

Extra Variety: Yakuza 2.2, 2.7 - Soulfly 1.5, 2.2, 3.3, 4.4 - Beamer 2, 3 - Ozone Quattro 1, 3 - Flow 2, 3, 4 - HQ Alpha 3.5 - Cross Kites 4.5 - Rage 1.8, 2.5, 3.5, 4.7 - Blurr 3.5, 5 - Reactor 2.2, 2.8, 3.5, 4.4

If you are bringing along something like a Igloo MaxCold Cooler or even a Yeti if you want to spend the bucks and a supply of reusable blue ice blocks, you could pretty much bring anything you wanted to.

Cold cut based sandwiches or heroes.
Rotisserie Chicken or Turkey
Pasta salads

Basically anything you could see yourself raiding the fridge for at 3:00 in the morning for.

If you don't want to mess with the cooler, you could bring along some bread and see if you are alright with any of the Underwood meat spreads (http://www.underwoodspreads.com/products/). Think of these as the lesser know un-SPAMs. ;) Keep them in their tins until you are ready to eat and no refrigeration needed.

Go to GNC or Vitamin Shoppe. There are plenty of meal bars and meal replacement drinks or powders in a variety of flavors, protein and calorie levels. I use them when I travel internationally to countries that don't agree with my dietary preferences or on occasions when I know I won't be able to get to any place that serves meals in a reasonable time.

seems like an odd question. cold cuts or peanut butter and jelly or beef jerky seem like obvious solutions. cold fried chicken is always great as well. Oddly enough, the other items you mentioned would have never crossed my mind. :P

a portable gas grill or even a Coleman stove could expand your possibilities if you have the time.

With a stove and water you could heat up the mre type meals that the outdoors stores sell. Some of those are pretty decent and would still be a simple minimilast approach if that's the goal. A good hot meal would be more satisfying than any cold options imo.

Your short-list of never-hads goes for me too. Why would anyone eat that stuff if they didn't have to :megan: ?

I opt for a big breakfast before I head out, and a bag of trail mix (from the local dollar store - I'm too cheap for GNC) to keep me going through most of the day.

If I think I'll need more than that, good ol' PB&J (strawberry please) is my go-to, but ham & cheese'll do the trick too. Both of them last a few hours without refridgeration and fill the gap well enough. Other than that: water while I'm flying, beer once everythings packed up.

It's a simple diet, but it works for me :wee:

Go ahead... tell me to "go fly a kite!" Please!

Jerky and nuts are standby favorites. High in protein and fats for staying satiated. If you're near Ivanpah then you can stock up "Alien Jerky". Yum!

Born-Kite NASA Star-3 (1.5m, 2.5m, 3.2m, 4.0m; z-bridled for handle flying)

Peter Lynn Bigfoot+ modified with VTT rail & seat kit (a seriously great performance upgrade), two sets of Sysmic rims (one set with BigFoot slicks for the "beach" of the Great Salt Lake and the other with 6-ply trailer tires for the Ivanpah playa), and BigKidKites AQR (because it keeps me in the bug and in my marriage)

Im partial to the Cliff Bar Berry Pomegranate Chia bars and Kroger brand trail mix. Both are quite tastey, available at Krogers and wont break the wallet.
