Real food and freeze dried.

I find freeze dried to be the best option because they don't take up a lot of space, they are water tight until opened, they are very light, and the will not spoil.

A freeze dried one-serving mail will be balanced with protien, fat, and carbs that you need to maintain your energy, they are easy to prepare (boil water, add to pouch, set your tent and sleeping bag up, dinner is ready. They take up almost no space in your trash bag, there are no dishes to wash, and no special pots and pans to carry (only your pot to boil water in.)

As far as lunch and breakfast go, that's really the place to vary your menu. I find Cliff's bars and beef (or other meat) jerky to be a good breakfast (I usually eat the Cliff's bars in camp, then gnaw on the jerky for the first 30 minutes or so on the water.) I also like bagles and peanut butter with pre-cooked bacon. For lunches, hard salami and cheese in a pita or tortilla is a good lunch, and for me at least, satisfies the craving for fresh food. Pitas and tortillas are great because they don't squish, and you can carry several days' worth in a smaller space than bread. And if they get wet, they don't fall apart. I prefer pita, but they are both great.
