Energy on the trail part 4

This is the final blog post about your only source of energy on the trail (and off): Food. These posts were initiated by some questions from a female backpacker who had suffered from calory deficit while on long hikes. She also was a bit worried about female hikers being more prone to this than male, because of a wish to lose weight. So she asked me a number of questions about food for backpacking that I have tried to answer in this series.
In this final entry I will add some variation and inspiration to the pretty austere dry food menu that I tend to use most of the time. Something for everyone, I hope, that will make the caloric intake on longer hikes more enjoyable.
