I just accepted a Wilderness Field Guide position with a company in Utah. This is a dream job for me. Unfortunately, the food provided is your standard backpacking cuisine- ramen, oatmeal, peanut butter, dried meats, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, with a nightly stew or slow cook over a fire.
My work will be 2 weeks in the field and 2 weeks traveling wherever I want to go. So- two weeks of camp food, and two weeks of food of my picking..
I Know how to eat clean, what I'm more concerned about is the 'flip-flop.' From the information I've given you, how would you approach this situation? What would be your ESSENTIALS in the field? How can I best counteract a constant exposure, with 2 weeks of recovery afterward? And, what do you forsee being the biggest losses is overall health?

Can they not provide Almond butter? I personally wouldn't eat peanut butter again, nasty stuff.
ramen, oatmeal, peanut butter, dried meats, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, stew
I wouldn't eat ramen, all the other items would be ok for me if that was my only choice and I couldn't bring something else. All in all the diet is far superior to what most people eat on a daily basis so if you are young and healthy and obviously going to be active I'd just enjoy the fact that you are going to do what is a "dream" job and don't let the other stuff ruin it for you.
