A couple of things I haven't seen mentioned so far. First, tuna and other fish in foil packs. Lighter than cans, easier to open, can be found in most grocery stores. Couscous is a good carb source and much denser than pasta. I just add hot or boiling water and let it soak for about 5 minutes, no real cooking needed.

If you have the "World Market" chain in your area, they carry lots of single serving , shelf stable foods. Some are tastier than others, but there is enough variety to break up the tedium.

Carrying a few seasonings can go a long way towards making food more palatable as well.
