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.

On tour, (IMO) any kind of pizza fits into the "healthy" category.

So, what do you bring with you to bake a pizza?

This topic is a great place to post your favorite recipe.

I copied this recipe from my entry at another thread.  I thought it is worth it under this topic.

"Filet Mignon; grilled on an open fire with a cracked pepper crust (the butcher   
                      cut thickness, 1 1/2" as requested, 12oz).
Covered with...
Sauteed Mushrooms & Caramelized Onion in a Wine Sauce:

                     I get 4 butter pads (sealed) at breakfast.  I carry a 3oz. bottle of Olive Oil and meal
                     portion, spices (in a baggy from home).  I bought Wine (dry white) in a 4 pack of 187ml.

                     For the sauce (single serving):
                     1 TBSP Olive Oil
                     1/2  Medium Onion,sliced
                     4oz. Mushrooms (petite white),halved
                     1/2  cup Dry White Wine
                     4     pads Butter

                     In a skillet, (I use a Jet Boil 9"skillet, with a MSR Reactor stove) heat your oil until it
                     shimmers.  Add Onion, saute until it begins to brown.
                     Add mushrooms to the onion, continue to saute , until soft and gives up moisture.  Add
                     Wine and reduce for 3or4 minutes. Off the heat add butter, stir; until                               melted pour over your Filet.
Enjoy the remaining wine, with dinner and share with your buddies. They'll think highly of your generosity.

All with a side dish of Zucchini Squash.  Asparagus goes well also".

One pot -- Alcohol Burner + Pot Cozy
If you cook over a backpack stove, check out the Pot Cozy idea. I made mine to fit my MSR Titan pot. I found Reflectix at Home Depot.

Near East Quinoa Blend - Zesty Lemon (This is a quinoa/brown rice mixture) + 10 oz can of Great Value Chunk Chicken.
Boiled water (1 1/2 cups)
Added Quinoa, seasoning packet & chicken.
Back to a boil for 5 more minutes
25 minutes in cozy.
My stoker loved it.  :D

On a tour, my motto in perverted Latin is "we eatamus anythingus"!   You're burning so many calories, especially when it's cold, that you're on a "seafood" see it, you EAT it!!! :D

When I tour i  stop at local stores and purchase ingredients.  Weight is not as much of an issue, depending on how far till the next store on the next day's ride.  But I do want to minimize fuel consumption.  I would like to use an MSR windburner to boil water, toss in some noodles or beans or whatever and let them soak for 30 min after only a few minutes of boiling.  Any experience doing this for rice, quinoa, lentils, chickpeas, pasta, vermicelli, etc.  I am worried about eating and then having gas.

I prefer to take a shake with me, preferably high in protein.

These are the recipes I am most enthusiastic about:

• Chocolate banana nut shake: Combine 1 banana, 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein and 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of peanut or another nut butter.
• Vanilla berry shake: Combine 1 cup (237 ml) of fresh or frozen mixed berries, ice, 1 cup (237 ml) of high-protein natural yogurt and 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein.
• Chocolate hazelnut shake: Combine 15 ounces (444 ml) of chocolate milk with 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of hazelnut butter and 1 avocado.

I can only recommend trying them. They are nutritious without being too heavy in the stomach.
