As a dietitian and a touring cyclist with over 10k miles logged I have an easy formula for eating while out there.

peanut butter + [anything] = full belly, happy miles.

My favorites:
 
peanut butter + ramen noodles = peanut sauce [add-on options: tofu, broccoli, anything].

peanut butter + banana + tortilla = easy to carry and eat, tasty, cheap sandwich. 

Peanut butter is cheap, healthy, readily available (usually), calorically-dense, easy to carry and versatile.

I once went through a jar in 48 hours!

We, my wife and I, like to have 1 pot meals. But we lack creativity! Usually pasta, tuna, diced tomato, and maybe cheese. It is good but would like some variety.
Ideas welcomed!!

TTom,  my daughter calls this sort of thing "hippy pasta."  Walk through the produce section of the nearest grocery store and add in things that look interesting: bell peppers, broccoli, summer squash, etc.  Cut them up and toss into the water with the pasta.  Makes a nice change from the tomatoes.

Rice is also a great underlying ingredient. It is easy to prepare using the pasta method, plenty of water simmered until tender. To that just about anything can be added for an easy one pot meal. If two pots are available, the sky is the limit. Do all sorts of preps in the second pot then add the results to the rice either before straining or after.

There is a lot of good food for a dollar at the store we go to walmart all the time and I find a lot of good for that is very easy to make all you have to add is water maybe butter if you like of a little milk you can buy powder mike and only make what you need at any giving time.And oatmeal is another good morning meal to eat all finds of stuff that does not weight that much at all you can load up your bike and eat good too.I do like to try to eat one good meal if I can find a place on the road I like that meal to be the end of the day if I can and yes peanut butter and bread is good food too.This is what I will have on my trip to Maine in June 1 of 2014   this trip is about 1500-1800 miles one way.
