comment Winter food: which types of food are less inclined to freeze?
@Amine I like Kate's answer. Just another thought for you: we went igloo-camping last weekend and my trail mix was a big hit with the group.

comment The outdoors, solitude and dealing with loneliness
I think the idea scares me a lot less than you, but I've never been backpacking alone. Maybe that's what I'll do this weekend. Good luck, friend.

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.
