Apologies. It came about following a news article once on poor wages and conditions for tomato farmworkers in parts of Italy.

Gluten free, regenerative diet conscious, sugar free, predominantly vego, thyroxin dependent desperado seeking like remotely similar experienced hiker foody for advice, and found this thread. Pretty good, I'm writing it all down in notes preparing myself for a foray into the local Woolies aisles, but jeeeeez, most of those suggestions would likely kill what's left of me... well, fortunately the surgeon left most of me intact when he excised a 30g chunk from my person, so there's still about 54 kg to feed and dose. 54kg imminently about to embark on the Bibbulman track on a whim and my mother's resigned prayers. Seems like I'll be fairly dependent on rice and edamame/bean noodles as a base for most of the evening feasts, dried carrots, peas, corn, mushies and some form of protein. Gluten free snacks like I eat at home - nuts, dried fruit, dark chocolate sparingly because it makes me bounce from tree to tree without a care. I'm opportunitarian to a point and may resort to tuna sachets and jerky as tasty protein additives to the bland of the former, curry powder, parmesan or coconut powder to boost flavour and texture. Who knows what I'll invent out there on the trail... Anyone out there had to deal with gluten intolerance and thyroxin related issues on a multi-day hike?

Gluten intolerance is easy. You know what you need to avoid. Thyroxin should make no difference to anything.

Check out the thread adjacent to this one, “Best Tasting Dehydrated Camping Food”. Or you could try dehydrating your own meals.

What type of stove will you be using?

You’re more likely to find a larger range of gluten-free options at a decent-sized IGA (which you would already know), but certainly not cheap. Stock up on specials if you can. Assuming you’ll need to have food drops in place before you start.
What are your normal protein sources, can they be adapted to a long-life form?
