comment Winter food: which types of food are less inclined to freeze?
I agree water content is the key. But you mention peanut butter; isn't peanut butter oil-based and not water-based?

comment What dried vegetarian foods have the highest ratio of calories to volume?
Peanut butter! Get some JIF and it won't need to be refrigerated. Though, as a vegetarian, I think the most calorie-dense food I bring backpacking is almost always the trail mix. Get some with dark chocolate, if you want to be sure.

You have a zero-percent acceptance rate. I think you will find that you will get more answers to your questions if you accept start checking answers as correct.

I do not believe you answered the question. The OP was asking which areas of the bodies are most important. Your response is more like 'everything is important'.
