      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Compact Calories

Recommended Posts

Builder bars are something like 500 calories and quite good.

 

Kendal Mint Cake.

 

I love those things.

2.) Nutella

3.) Cheese

Another vote for Sin Dawg. The stuff is flat out amazing. If you haven't tried it, you *will* thank him later.

Nature's Bakery Fig Bars. They are two ounces, and you can purchase them for $0.50 at the Grocery Outlet. They taste delicious, and don't freeze. There is 390 calories in the whole package (1 serving = 1 bar @ 180 calories, 2 bars/package).

 

I can not find another food item that packs such punch for such economic savings, that tastes as good, and is varied (there are multiple flavors). The whole wheat flavors have less calories (40 less/serving) but are still fantastic. Both varieties are made with wholesome ingredients. They aren't organic, but are made from ingredients that I can pronounce which means I'm happy to eat them over many other bars.

 

I generally keep about 6 boxes on hand at home, grabbing a few each time I head out.

The specs they have on this page (for calories and such) are incorrect.

I like a combination of salty and sweet like Pay Day bars.

not much to add, except that nowadays I head to Trader Joes (cuz it's cheap) and get macadamia nuts as well. highest fat content in a nut, so it's good for energy.

read "born to run"

 

apparently chia seeds are really good, off the top of my head I think they're 60% oil by weight and 35% of that is omega-3.

Are those little tiny black seeds that as soon as you put them in your mouth they get a slimy snot like consistency? My Grandma sent me a huge box of seeds that were supposed to be a miracle seed full of Omega 3's and supposed to help level out blood sugars in diabetics (I'm a type 1 diabetic). I tried adding them to all sorts of stuff, but the only thing I could stomach them on was ice cream with fresh blackberries.

 

I *think* they are called indian running seeds sometimes?

yeah, camalina seeds do the same thing, pretty cool.

 

I think they made a tea out of the seeds in the born to run book mixed with some other stuff. experiment with it and report back.

For cold weather climbing, precooked bacon is nice. This is the stuff you buy in the package already cooked. Cheaper than jerky. A few pieces of bacon before bed keep me warm all night. And cheese. And metamucil to fight the bad effects.

Speaking of compact calories, is anyone interested in powdered ingredients? I know of a new company that offers state of the art dehydrating. This new revolutionary method retains virtually ALL of the original ingredients. Seems we could come up with some very specific climbing menus. Packed with pure Super Food.

 

Would you like to try a sample? Powdered blue berry, acai berry, raspberry, kelp, and many more. I cannot reveal the details but am curious if there is a market for pure powdered ingredients?

Ray Jardine's book about long distance hiking had an eye opening chapter on nutrition. According to my memory, instant potatoes retained the most nutrients of the instant starches/carbohydrates.

Dave, could you get me a supply of freeze-dried beetroot? That would be spectacular. I assume it would reconstitute in water "instantly" - I want to use it as a drink mix to make a strong juice

Deydrated sweet potatoes would be awesome. Reconstituted sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar would be a great meal.
