+2. When I am riding a lot, such as when I am bike touring, I feel like crap if I don't get enough carbs to go along with fat, protein and vegetable. That's why I bring an extensive cookset and use it to cook dinner most nights. Pasta is almost always the base for my dinners. To it I will add things like foil packed tuna or salmon or chicken sausage and vegetables.
