Yeah, I think Dragonfly's recommendations plus what you'll have your wife send are good ideas. Best of luck (in everything).

My dad has been in the military for almost 30 years and over his time he has been all over the world on dozens of tours overseas for up to a year at a time. My dad has always always been very conscious of what he eats especially overseas where the food is limited. He was stationed near major cities so when he could he would go into the markets and load up on dried fruits, nuts, butter and meats and bring it back to camp. He made a deal with some other guys so they would take turns brining food back as they rotated shifts.

My dad also complained about the breakfast options :). We sent him lots of jerky, canned salmon with bones, dried fruit and nuts, powdered coconut milk, boxed coconut cream, dried seaweed and one request that stands out is dried banana chips. It's so hot in some of these places and the guys are constantly on the move so the more portable an compact and jammed with good nutrients the better. Anyway not exactly Breakfast plan but breakfast kind of didn't exist for my dad on tour anymore -- it just became eat when you're hungry to fuel yourself up and go go go.

Can you get them to hard boil eggs for you the evening before?

If not, canned salmon, sardines, beef jerky, cheese and fruit are good replacements.

I make my own Paleo breakfast - almonds, seeds, berries with a vanilla whey + coconut milk protein shake used as "milk" poured over.

Mmmmmmmm.

I don't know if you'll have access to raw eggs (or if you'd even want to take the chance), but I assume you'll have access to hot water? I make a morning drink with 2 raw egg yolks, cocoa powder, a dab of butter or coconut oil (you may need more if you are doing active things .... sitting at a desk doesn't merit much for me), and a heaping spoonful of powdered gelatin. I blend with a handheld immersion blender, but I bet if you shook it hard in one of those protein mixer jar things, it would accomplish the same thing.

It is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. It is a cross between coffee and not-sweet hot chocolate and it keeps me going until lunch.

Also, if you are doing tuna pouches, maybe also throw in canned oysters and sardines (bone and skin on for the oysters) to hit on other nutritional needs and not get an overload on the mercury from the tuna.

Good luck with breakfast and with everything else.

Here is a great portable source of fat:

1/4 cup almond meal

1/4 cup shredded coconut

1 T almond butter

1 T coconut oil (or enough to make it pasty)

sprinkle of salt if you want

I make this for my little kids who can't eat nuts whole when we need a seriously portable, room temp, no chilling needed source of fat. It kind of tastes like a melted granola bar. You can add sweetener if you want (tsp of honey) but not really needed. We call it "coconut bowl."

If you can get some nut butters and coconut oil supplies perhaps you can make some paleo fudge for breakfast, or anytime. I know it might have to be spooned out of a jar in the heat, but it's still tasty. I started with this basic recipe and vary it depending on the batch to something like: a stick of butter and an equivalent glob of coconut oil and nut butter on top of shredded coconut.

Best of luck in the field.
