What do you pack for food?

Just curious what everyone packs for food. I find myself bringing huge amounts of granola bars and peanuts/trail mix, a sandwich or two. I usually go through 6 granola bars a day and a couple sandwich bags of trail mix and a sandwich or two on top of lunch. Its rather bulky, anyone found a high calorie, small snack to bring?

What kind of sandwiches are you packing that are bulky? It took some convincing at first, but some friends of mine swore by regular cold cut turkey/ham sandwicheson regular sliced wheat bread for lunch on the hill. I relented and they made one for me (which they packed chock full of turkey meat). I carried all our sandwiches in my backpack, but they would have easily fit my jacket pockets.

To my surprise, the sandwich was actually pretty satisfying (along with a cookie or candy bar). Good way to save about $12 on a meal.

Wraps are quite good. Pack em full of the usual sandwich stuff like you mentioned (esp. good protein sources). The thinness of the wrap saves space in pockets and/or bag and they don't mind being squashed like bread does.

That and granola bars etc are what we usually pack.

If i'm feeling super lazy, two xl pieces of pizza sandwiched together also packs well and are in abundance for cheap here in Van

Linking your credit card to your season pass is also getting popular with the kids. Only carry one card, no wallet steez. Boom!

I don't think we have that feature here yet. I'd like to get everything on one device: phone, car keys, money, house key, office key, library card, insurance cards, etc. Of course if you lose the device or get robbed you're hosed.

I find that what I have for breakfast makes the big difference on how much I scoff during the day. If I have a really good breakfast I don't need anything until lunchtime- having said that I always have lunch early so I am on the snow when everyone else is having lunch.

A good hearty bowl of porridge followed by scrambled eggs does the trick :-)

resort food is too expensive...it cuts into the gas fund. So i usually pack a sandwhich or 2, chips, cookies, granola bars, possibly fruit, a few sodas, and water. As far as chips go...Munchies are the best dam things ever invented, me and 2 friends can finish a new bag in 10 minutes. Sooooo good

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Cliff bars, beef jerky and gummi bears. . .breakfast, lunch and dinner of champions!

I really am a big fan of Cliff bars, though. I also pack them for long hikes. Just a couple, and I'm good for the whole day. Wish they were a bit cheaper, though.

Those Munchies look pretty damned good too, though. . .
