This is how my typical food intake would look like, and will look like this year too.
- Breakfast: Dehydrated breakfast ration pack (cold)
- During the day when racing: Various bars (Flapjacks/protein bars), canned tuna or similar
- Dinner 1: Dehydrated dinner ration pack (hot)
- Dinner 2: Dehydrated dinner ration pack (hot), and some small pieces of what I find eatable from what is served by the rally organization.
Apart from that, I just try to constantly eat while I am at base camp in order to get as much energy back into my body as possible. A friend of mine wore one of those heart monitors during a race and it showed he had burned 7,000 calories during one race day so you really need to eat as much as you possibly can.
