I like the Gourmet Guerrilla.

Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night.

This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home.
He knows only The Cause.

Still want to quit?

gourmet guerrilla - 'gr-may gu'-ri-luh [n] (Old SF) -
Irregular, predominantly indigenous forces devoted to refined sensuous enjoyment (especially good food and drink) conducting military and paramilitary operations in enemy-held or hostile territory. See unconventional dining.

In keeping with TR's refined definition how about...

Conventional and uncoventional sustenance and libation.

"It sings!"

And after the Mod's beer, ice cream and brownie float, very appropriate.

Smile The C-4 Diner

The C-4 Diner has a nice ring to it. BTW, just before I retired while stationed in Hawaii I started my next endeavor as a chef apprentice and finally earned my Certified Executive Chef standing. I had to give that up unfortunately around 2015 due to the ticker going bad amongst other things.
But, I still have quite a bookshelf and a lot of recipes floating through the cranium.
If anybody needs any answers, curiosity or such give me a shout.

Here's something for the rucksack;

1 - packet of coffee creamer *
1 - packet of dehydrated coffee *
1 - packet of sugar *
1 - package of cocoa mix *

4 ounces of unsalted mixed nuts
2 ounces of coconut flakes
4 ounces of raisins
2-4 ounces of dark chocolate (at least 77%)

* = mocha mix.

Place it all in a zip lock bag. 3 bags per day are good for cold weather burst of energy and heat. Used during a couple of winter exercises, sure lightened the load in the ruck.
