Greetings, I'm going on a 4-day "hut to hut" mtn bike ride next month with huge mileage and altitude gain--I will need a lot of calories. They stock the huts with food but since I must eat low carb (I get really sick if I don't)the company says they will let me give them boxes of food that I pack myself and leave them in the huts for me. The food must be non-perishable. I am totally gluten intolerent (except for beer, strangely) and I can't eat much dairy either (except for eggs, butter and heavy cream). Food additives and sugar often cause me problems. Very few processed foods work for me--pretty much just Kettle chips and tortilla chips. Everything else I make from scratch and mostly I just eat whole fresh foods. I can eat corn and potatoes in limited amounts; in general I have to stick to 150 grams of carbs per day. Wheat, rice and legumes turn out particularly bad for me. Any ideas on what I should leave in the huts and bring with me? So far my thoughts are, nuts and lots of homemade jerky in my pack, and home-canned meat and stews for the hut boxes. (I am used to canning). I usually eat a lot of heavy cream, eggs, fresh fruits and vegies and fresh meat so this is sort of tricky!
