resupply

Fat matters

I went shopping and had things on my list I normally never buy, 11 kg of butter, ramen noodle soup and 5 kg of instant oats.  Normally I shop for organic,  MGO -sulfur free, low sodium, fat and sugar products but on this expedition all rules dissipate.  I was looking for the cheese, salami and nuts with the highest amount of fat and calories. By the time this resupply reaches us, we have been on the ice for 30 days and are hungry and depleted. The butter will be welcome, and guaranteed we put this  on top of our chocolate, salami and cheese.  I also picked up 5 kg of combat powder protein – perhaps distracted by the guy flexing his muscles on the label. Hell, we put it in our oatmeal, and if it helps us pulling the sled over the rubble,  I am all for it.
