A week ago I got back from a week-long tour in the mountains in Padjelanta, the Swedish Arctic. When going on hikes like this, especially when they take more than say 5 days, picking the right food is always an interesting task. One needs food that provides the right nutrients, and is lightweight. Typically one eats quite fatty food like nuts, just to get the calories and proteins. Getting the other nutrients is a lot harder, though to be fair, for a one week tour it likely does not really matter.
This time I took some Jake with me, one small and one original per day, and I think it worked really well. Aside from the motivation regarding nutrients, I prefer not too spend much time on food while on the trail, and here Jake excels. It tastes especially good with ice-cold water flowing down the mountains. One more learning experience: don't lose your shaker. The lid of mine rolled in a river on the second last day while preparing breakfast. I followed but unfortunately wasn't able to grab it . Next time, two shakers!
