V8 and Powerbars go a long way in keeping me alive. I often have a couple of Powerbars in a Camelbak or bike messenger bag. They keep forever (or at least long enough) and do OK in the heat, although they get sort of soft. One down side is the non-recyclable wrapper and they can be sticky.LindseyRaeFace wrote:A guy gave us clif bars last year "They're kind of a commitment" he said... They saved us! Keep them in the cool place so the chocolate doesnt melt but they are great ang vegan. Like a grown up chewy bar!
PB&J works, if you dont mind not cooling your Jelly.
Chips & Salsa was AMAZING! The Salsa felt cold all week even though we didnt have ice. YUMMMM
V8 for salt and vitamins, great when youre hung over
We loved the Boost nutritional drinks in the morning, better chilled, but a cool shot of vitamins and protein in the hot mornings is perfect, especially if you partied teh night before.
Canned soup with pop top lids, leave it on your dash or on top of a car, somehwhere in the sun for the day, hot soup for dinner
Gonna try applesauce this year, Simplay Asia noodle bowls (in the sun, oh yeah), chili made at home too. Hope they go good!
V8 can be left on a counter or table for a couple of days but I don't know about how well it will hold up in the desert. I'm doing my best to not bring a cooler for space and cost reasons. I can drink warm water/Gatorade, it doesn't bother me.
I think I may be forced to bring a small cooler, but for now I'm trying to plan around not having one.
