    Um, yeah, but Coke is salty anyway (see "Sodium" on the list of ingredients, it's pretty high up there). One of the many reasons I prefer iced tea to soda. :)

    Cheap easy and portable is asking a lot.
    A quart of milk has gotta be #1. [If stores have refrigeration] Requires no cooking, no utensils, and it's REAL food... protien, vitamins, minerals. Buy it and drink it. If that's too pricey... powdered milk mixed with coco, sugar, and water isn't too bad.

    Peanut butter on ANYTHING works... on the usual bread or crackers, but also on fruit or vegetable slices... even eating it from a spoon works if nothing else is handy. Needs no refrigeration or power to make it edible. Again, it's REAL food... protien and all that.

    Easy and portable:
    Cheese whiz on cookies is good emergency food... needs no refrigeration. Protien, carbs, fat.

    Not portable, but cheap:
    Oatmeal (the kind you cook for a few minutes) Gotta be able to cook though.

    Popcorn (assuming it's the non-microwave type), warm, salty, and filling, but requires electricity.

    Good advice! Also it's worth noting that avacados are considered the one perfect food, if you had to choose one, since they contain just about everything one needs to live. Unfortunately, they're a bit on the pricey side, they're seasonal, and they go bad just as quickly as most produce.

    Umm... does it worry anyone (about the coke) that you're drinking something that can dissolve your food? Just doesn't seem quite right to me. I heard that coca-cola cleans their engines with coke...

    That won' make any difference to us really. We have acids in our stomachs stronger than that in coke. Its hydrochloric acid and is the type used in car batteries i think. So adding a bit of phosphoric isn't gonna make much of a difference.

    My daily meal order exactly the same, every saturday before i play Rugby:

    Breakfast:
    Drink: fresh Orange (pint)
    Eat: 3 Pieces of Toast with Butter (non-salted), tones of overly generous portions of real honey on each piece.

    Lunch (about 3 hours later):
    Drink: fresh Orange (1/2 pint)
    Eat: Bowl of Tomato Pasta (home made)

    Once i get their, about 10 minutes before the start of the match i usually drink Lucozade sport, or even better Lucozade Pure Gel (the equivelant energy in undiluted Gel form of 5 bottles of Lucozade - its like tooth paste but tastes of orange).

    Then i can go match sprinting for the full 90 minutes - come off the pitch and im still fine for a good night out :good:

    Union - most clubs do.

    Rugby matches only last for 80 minutes in the RFU rule book, however you also have to count injury time.. and referee's not watching the clock.

    Rugby? If it contains non homosexual high speed impacts then its not really "girly" is it?

    (I'm not tht into rugby so excuse me if i'm wrong,Procal back me up!) Rugby League is teams like Leeds Rhino's where Union is like Wasps. In rugby league if a player is tackled they stand up roll the ball back with foot and carry on. Union has all the rucks and all tht lot. League is softer!
