How much food to pack when paddling?
Start each day with a complex carbohydrate breakfast and regularly restore energy with smaller snacks through out the day. Finish the day with another dose of carbohydrates.
Things to consider when deciding how much food to take
· Weather and Climate – cold weather makes us hungry so pack more filling hot meals
· Age – children have a higher metabolic rate and require small snacks on a regular interval
· Sex – males consume a greater quantity of food than females so pack accordingly
· Level of physical activity – replenish energy supplies according to the level of exercise. Paddling into winds, swell or extensive distances means you will need to replenish more than on a fine day.
Things to note when packing food
· Pack in water tight containers, dry bag or zip lock bags
· Keep snacks, water and lunch in day hatch
· Take more food than you would usually eat and emergency food
· Dried fruit, apples, oranges, mandarins
· Baked beans
· Muesli bars
· Tin seafood or meat
· Packet rice and pasta
· Fruit loaf
Other things to note;
· Eat foods that will spoil or become squashed on the first day
· Make sure you take extra water for the preparation of meals
· When packing set out a menu to ensure all ingredients are included
· Pack foods that will be used in the same meal together
