What food and liquids should I bring for a day of touring?

Food for backcountry touring: variety of snacks, salty, sweet and high in calories. For example a sandwich, bars, candy, chocolate, cheese, salami, pastries etc
Think of easy to eat snacks for a on the go day. There will not be a specific lunch time, we believe lunch starts after breakfast!
Liquids: About 1.5 to 2 liters of liquid
Consider hot drinks like decaffeinated teas, electrolytes etc in addition to your liter of water.
On cold days a nice trick is to fill your water bottle with warm water so it won’t freeze throughout the day.
Hydration packs are not recommended as the tube can freeze or the hydration bladder can burst.
A lightweight thermos and and water bottle are a great combo
