When on a hike, it's best to bring food that has around 125% of the calories you normally eat in a day. On longer hikes in colder areas, you'll need to have extra calories. Pack healthy snack foods like peanuts, raisins, chocolate, jerky, granola bars, and/or dried fruit. You'll need a lot of carbohydrates and proteins. Be sure that the food you pack is hearty enough to nourish you, but also enough to be carried around for periods of time without needing refrigeration.
