A lot of people buy #10 cans, dehydrated foods, and I'll venture to guess they don't count how many calories they've stored. Fruits and veggies are of course good for us but very low in calories and won't sustain your strength when needed most. This is one of hte reasons I'm very fond of rice / beans and stock them heavily (also since I don't grow them).

There are cheap, very cheap, surgary "energy" bars out there which are good for packs too, high in calories and will keep you going when you need to be going.
