Next year I will tour with a group of people, some who will have special diet needs (low sodium and such). I've done one self-supported tour in which I cooked/camped, but could rely on some prepackaged foods (my favorite was a form of Lipton cheezy rice that I added a can of chicken into). Being alone, it didn't mattter what I ate. Now that I will be in a group, there will be restrictions on what others can eat and a lot of prepackaged foods will be out of the question. Fresh will be the rule rather than canned.
While I anticipate some nights of hitting restaurants, I was wondering if there are any tips people in similar situations can pass along? I believe we will be passing through towns where we will be able to get groceries. Also, are there any recipes that you swear by that are easy to prepare? While I like oatmeal, I don't want to be eating that every meal.
We haven't broken down our lists yet, but I anticipate having one or more backpacking stove and possibly a grill rack that could be placed over a fire.
Thanks in advance.
