When out and about in the woods or combat. Remember to takes about 1200 calories and a gallon of water a day when it comes to being outdoor. Yet when you think about it. That's a lot of food and water to keep up with. You have to boil and/or filter the water you find. For food you must hunt or use what little you have in your bag or hidden away for winter. You should learn to make different traps for small game and fish. So your time can be spend on preparing for other needs for the day or week.

Smoke your meat. Lasts longer. Pack rice. It is somewhat light weight, cooks easy (when you procure water), filling and packs calories. Remember, when you eat carbs, you need to hydrate to help digest. Regular dry condoms (jimmy caps, rubbers, nasty shields etc) make awesome water storage devices.... cotton balls slopped in Vaseline (never shoe polish- smell is bad, makes you traceable) for fire starting.... maintains like a candle to get chunks of wood burning..... and of course, denies everything.

Individual field rations need to meet a couple of criteria;  easy to pack, lightweight, and quick to prepare.  Try to choose items that don't require cooking; you may not have a chance to make a fire and prepare them.  To my knowledge ALL canned goods (remember ham and lima beans?) are fit to eat from the can, but they are HEAVY.  Ideally freeze dried food (Mountain House, MREs etc.) is best; but expensive and not easily obtainable.  Instant ramen, quick oats, Kraft mac and cheese, meat in foil pouches, powdered/instant soup mixes are all good.  You can eat the ramen and oats without cooking, but be sure to chase them with plenty of water.  Rice needs LOTS of water: rinse once and then fill again and  boil for 20 mins. or so; sticks to pot.  Lots of labor to prepare and cleanup, so it's never my first choice.

 

A guy named Bear Independent carries a good sized bag of peanuts and some granola bars.  I like instant coffee/hot chocolate/tea and raisins for morale.  Claw Hammer mentioned hard candies.

A jar of peanut butter has 2,000-3,000 calories.  Not a bad item to stuff in your bag if you plan to be out for a few days and need some extra calories quick and easy.

 

Not the easiest thing to take by the spoonful repeatedly... but, it packs a calorie punch without taking up a lot of space.  

 

Also a nice prep item as it has a long shelf life.  Potentially indefinite if stored correctly.  Have seen some old MRE's where the only thing left that was edible in them was the PB>
