I did a ten day tour around Florida and the only food I ate was trail mix,nutrigrain bars and 2 footlongs from Subway a day. I am planning a 2500 mile ride in 9 months and will stick to that, maybe mix it up here and there with some of the suggestions above.

I'm curious; how often is that possible?  I don't recall seeing a Subway between Hutchinson, KS, and Pueblo, CO, some 400 miles, just to name one stretch.  To be honest, I may have missed one or two.  I expected to be eating a lot more subs than I actually did on that trip.

It was possible on the trip i made around Florida. However, I do not think It would be possible on many rides cross country.

Did the ST  ending in San Fran in09 and didn't take any cooking gear.  Sometimes the food is not what you would generally eat and only once did I get a little stuck on a Sunday in a small town in Texas - all I could get were candy bars YEUK but let's face it I didn't starve and to miss the odd meal is no big deal.
Don't spend too much time worrying about these things go and enjoy the ride - my next ride (start next month) is across Australia and still have no intention of cooking.  There will several times where there just really is nothing in the out back.  Nuts & dried fruit etc get you through.
Good luck.

Just got back from the Oregon section of the Sierra-Cascade route, finishing in Medford. My no-cooking strategy worked fine. Always, always have plenty of water, though.

At least pack some peanut butter and one word NUTELLA! And some bread or crackers.

raw uncooked ramen (sans flavor packet)is suprisingly good with peanut butter and raisins, just be sure to have some water to wash it down with.
