I suppose that very much depends upon the walking, KimE. If it is strenuous, then lack of calories could very much be a problem. I've certainly 'bonked' whilst on a cyclosportife event (Bealach na Ba), and it was not pleasant; not pleasant at all.

Strenuousness is the path of immortality, sloth the path of death.

I like porridge with a handful of nuts an raisins or even better a handful of peanut m'n'm for breaky then a bar of what ever for a snack and graze on trail mix of nuts n raisins. For dinner on the first day I carry in chipolatas and instant mash. I have pack pasta n sauce for day two with beef jerky. Bring a reflectix pot cozy and save on gas. That thing keeps water scalding for an hour

I know the Bealach na Ba and can understand why it is not suitable for a bonk - the hairpin bends are just too steep.
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

Oh dear. I suppose I asked for that!  :)

I like to take the weight hit because as you say they do taste nice.

After a really hard day or if it's been wet i do like having the 'wet' meals or even just a nice sticky toffee pudding one.

What I have done in the past is find a tourist information centre or similar along the trail or close and ask if I can mail myself a care package. I've not been told no yet 😊
