What's the weird food that satisfies you in the wild ? Salty vinegar soaked pickles are actually big sources of probiotics. Not sure why, but you crave this kind of stuff on the trail especially when it's hot and dry. Sardines, in salt & oil or just water, give an amazing energy boost. Homemade sports drink with lemon base quenches the thirst better than store bought chemicals. I add Rosemary and Spearmint. Grapefruit is given out in the French Foreign Legion desert operations.. High mineral thirst quencher like no other. Pickled Brussels Sprouts, extra weird but excellent. There's more on my list but this is a start.
