I was told by a North Korean refuge works in our 'Not' sweat shop, that the reason they started eating dog 15 years ago or so is because of the over population, and lack of other meat. Then after a while it became common. She also told me that her mom would pay big bucks for dogs with black skin because they're supposed to be lucky or healthy.

I eat very high protein, dense foods so that if I can't bring myself to eat much, I wont be underfed. I also pack a few snacks whenever I leave camp, day or night.
* Shredded wheat & Horizon farms non-refrigerated milk (I often chill it, but it's not mandatory)
* Chilled espresso in a can
* Underwood's Devilled chicken on whole grain bread*, or
* Peanut butter and jelly or honey
* Tuna/Salmon packets (vacuum-sealed)
* Trader Joeâ€™s rice/jambalaya packs
Portable snacks: Jerky, Granola bars, Nuts, Gingersnaps (& Ginger candy in the 1st aid kit, settles tummies) Pretzels/chips, Dried fruit, Fruit cups And of course, juice, soda & spirits.
* Here is the trick I use to keep bread edible for 5-6 days: buy it on the way--a few hours before entering BRC. I don't chill it, because I feel there is too much risk of it getting it wet--your mileage may vary. Open it at least once a day, and let it breath for a while (20-30 minutes, whatever) to get the moisture out. This goes against my real-world habits in a really big way & can feel pretty strange--it would normally be a great way to get immediately stale bread. However, it has worked for me every time, no less than 5 days of good bread, sometimes more. Still, however, I make sure to consume a lot of bread in the first few days especially, so that if it goes bad it's no big deal.

I came three times and may even come again.

I buy the Bubbies brand pickles & sauerkraut (also brined), put them in ziplocks & munch on them during the week. Great for salt. I drink the pickle juice so there's no waste. Salty pickle water....yummm.
Kimchee is also a tasty treat, as long as your campmates don't kill you over the smell. You might want to triple-bag it.

I get the same reaction to my kimchee, so I usually just bring a small amount to make me happy. A lot of people don't like sauerkraut either (weirdo's), but I can definitely eat a whole jar of that in a week. The only time I didn't is when I decided to be cheap & bought a vinegared sauerkraut. One bite & that went uneaten. Horrid stuff.
