Topic - The best food for your trips away

The best food for your trips away.
Ok, so when you are going away climbing, backpacking, mountaineering or.....you need to eat and you need to eat well. Making sure that you got plenty of calories and plenty of energy to complete your aiming task.
Everyone is keep saying that the best thing in the morning for breakfast is porridge. Correct, but last time I was in the Alps, nearly every morning I was eating porridge. So guess what I donít think I can eat porridge any more. You would say, hang on, you canít stop eating porridge after just one trip to Alps. Just to clarify, when I was a kid, I was attending pre-school learning group. And every single morning they were feeding us with PORRIDGE! I remember force feeding and harsh moment of feeling sick : Ė(. No more porridge for me.
Right now I am trying different combinations of good/ healthy/light weight foods. So far - no luck. I have tried sausages. Sausages first of all a heavy product, healthy (not so sure about that one) plus you feel very thirsty after eating them Ė(.
Sandwich? May be, but I tent to carry sandwiches with me on the hill.
Some other things I have tried but nothing right so far. Will keep on looking.
The best food in your backpack...I donít think I got a problem with pack lunch. As when I am stopping for snack break or lunch, I am starving to death, so I would eat anything! Usually, I got banana and apple, few sandwiches, packed of crisps and some kind of snack bar. But wait there is more (LOL)!!! In the recent past my friend Paul suggested to try Sainsburyís Taste The Difference Flapjack, now my favourite eatable thing in my backpack -), absolutely love it!
Lots of expensive bars on the market, but if you are going away 2-3 times a monthís it could be a bit pricey.
I have tried nuts and raisins on one of my trips, but after 5 days I could not eat them, as my jaws were so steve and I could not chew.
In the evening, if itís not a budget trip ĖPub/take away! If itís a budget trip I would cook some kind of pasta, or rice dish or well anything.
Looks like I got a problem only with my breakfast Ė(, maybe I always will, maybe I just donít like to eat breakfast! Time will show.

What have you got to eat in your backpack? What is your favorite breakfast?
