The first person who gets up in the morning is making breakfast for the group. This means basically you crush ice and snow with a shovel to melt it in a big pot. As the others wake up hot water for a nice cup of tea is ready. For a healthy start to the day we eat bacon and hash browns or we warm up any leftovers from the day before. Crackers, cheese, salami and tuna make a good lunch while away from our camp.
We have dinner around 10pm which is usually stir-fried meat with frozen beans and rice. A block of chocolate is always in the pocket to help staying warm. If you don’t finish it during the day I recommend to put it within reach of your sleeping bag. The Antarctic diet is great!
