Food glorious food. Out on the ice for 17 days, the guys were able to give the once over on their rations - to see what was tasty and what was nasty. Because of the monotonous nature of skiing day after day, food can play a vital role in mixing things up a bit and relieving the boredom.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner went something like this:
Breakfast: porridge (dehydrated + water), hot chocolate
Lunch : 3 x Cadburys chocolate bars, 2 x Pepperami, 1x Flapjack, 1 x 50g Bag mixed nuts, 2 Orange fuel drinks
Evening : 1 main meal (700 cals), 1 pudding (500 cals) - usually rice puddig with fruit pieces, hot chocolate.
In total the guys were expending around 6,000 cals a day and taking on 5,500 cals, with no pemmican in sight.
