Foods and drinks
I'm hoping someone can answer this question - what kind of food and drink do you guys eat while on your (day)hikes?
Whenever I go on my hikes, I tend to bring a 1 or 2 fruits, a granola bar, and lots of water. But at the end of the day, I am completely exhausted. I realize I should be since I've been walking for 4~6 hours, but I also think that a part of it is due to poor "re-fueling". Is there a "miracle" food that will keep me energized throughout the day (even after my hike)? Do you only drink water or do sports drinks (like Gatorade) help? Or am I just over-exerting myself?
And, please don't recommend those power bars. I don't like the taste of them! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
Thanks in advance,
