Did anyone attempt going keto for the transcontinental?
A guy I was talking to reckoned his start-up would be gel packets filled with jam. Everybody likes jam. I'd buy them.
Bundle up with those Pip and Nut sachets and he's onto a winner...
Yeah, @umop3pisdn already tagged me with that on twitter :)
He's kinda been beaten to that already by people like me nicking those little jam packets from hotel breakfasts and...
Yeah, I love those little things. I nick the Marmite ones too. Maybe you can buy them bulk from somewhere.
Just edited this recipe as it was misleading
Yoghurt = melty mess
You need carbs on the road, not protein.
Nuts and chocolate are for afters.

I've had those, but @hippy is right, and they're not as delicious.
The Eat Natural bars have rice in. And enough sugar to fuel a toddler for a year.
When you're coeliac they used to be one of the only available options. Thankfully there is more choice now.
That's all well and good but that "10g protein" just delays access to the carbs needed.
I knew a Celia once...
You don't need any more carbs mate.
I think my food choices worked pretty well considering I beat most of the riders in TCR while drinking my way across the continent. Not bad for a fat, old, alcoholic. Imagine if I did diet...
I was impressed with the beer in every country.

Sounds about right. Eat what you like or you won't eat. Not need for gels or other shit. Just sugar in some form.
mainly just happy to have my love of peanut butter sandwiches vindicated
