There is a heck of a lot of food between granola bars and restaurant meals, and much of it requires no cooking. Any halfway decent grocery store will offer hundreds of options, whether you're a vegetarian or omnivore. Because you have panniers or a trailer, you can carry food from where it is available to where you eat it. You don't always have to eat what's available where you are right now.
Correct me if I'm wrong, if you are riding across the country without a stove, then you will be eating every supper at a restaurant or buying food from a store to eat that night. Granola bars and peanut butter sandwiches are OK I guess while riding and you have no good place to stop for food. But never ever supper. When you set up camp for the night you are in town or close to town or you just went through a town. There should always be a place to get real food close to your camp spot. Or get food before getting to your camp spot. I would never tolerate granola bars and peanut butter sandwiches for supper ever.
