If you want something less "snacky," you might try a roll-up. Two things I've tried are 1) cream cheese spread on a whole-wheat tortilla, rolled up with thin slices of fruit or veggies inside, or 2) peanut butter on a whole-wheat tortilla, sprikled with raisins and then rolled up. It doesn't smash down like a sandwich.

There are some great recipes for energy bars, oatmeal bars, and granola in Spark recipes. I keep meaning to make one of them.

Those all sounds great, you can also make your on trail mix or granola bars. I've recently discovered sushi rice bars, reccommended for cycling, that sound really great!

Thanks for the replies. Its an all day hike, so i was looking for substitutes for meals. Think i'll pack lots of snacks like bananas, nuts and protein bars, which are easier on the stomach and to carry around.

Having good insulin sensitivity means that the body can more easily take sugar from the bloodstream, allowing muscles to use it for fuel..eat some oatemal before your hike...After your hike have some dark chocolate which will bring more oxygen to replenish any muscle sorness...like 5 dark chocolate hershey kisses....

SARDINES ARE LOADED WITH PROTEIN... pop open the can and eat. About 150 calories for the can.

Dole has new single serve containers of blueberries & Strawberries with no added sweeteners. AT AROUND 35 TO 50 CALORIES EACH YOU CAN FREEZE THEM AND LET THEM DEFROST

Avocados deliver almost 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients ...take along a spoon and just slice one open.

How about beef jerky? Easy to carry....

You might also consider a meal replacement bar (like Clif bars) which can give you the calories and nutrients you need for a long workout.

Good luck!

Plenty of water and/or weak juice, and some nuts and dried fruits. They are light and a good energy source. Having a couple cold baked potato might be good, too! The GI is lowered when they are cold. Perhaps slicing up some apples/pears to nibble, too, because that will also help with the moisture content at the same time. Foil-wrapped cheese might be a good option, also.

Good luck and enjoy your hike.
