New Wilderness Job: How do I manage flip-flopping properly!?

I just accepted a Wilderness Field Guide position with a company in Utah. This is a dream job for me. Unfortunately, the food provided is your standard backpacking cuisine- ramen, oatmeal, peanut butter, dried meats, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, with a nightly stew or slow cook over a fire.

My work will be 2 weeks in the field and 2 weeks traveling wherever I want to go. So- two weeks of camp food, and two weeks of food of my picking..

I Know how to eat clean, what I'm more concerned about is the 'flip-flop.' From the information I've given you, how would you approach this situation? What would be your ESSENTIALS in the field? How can I best counteract a constant exposure, with 2 weeks of recovery afterward? And, what do you forsee being the biggest losses is overall health?

Thanks, Hackers.

I wouldn't risk continous exposure to alfatoxin when almond butter is typically sitting right next to peanut butter on the shelf you know? Obviously eating peanut butter once in a while is no problem whatsoever but when it is going to be eaten 14 days a month I would be reluctant to indulge

Yeah, after reading it, my worry sounds silly. There are other things like tortilla, possibly some beans... At least the trips aren't sponsored by Hostess.

Can they not provide Almond butter? I personally wouldn't eat peanut butter again, nasty stuff.

ramen, oatmeal, peanut butter, dried meats, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, stew

I wouldn't eat ramen, all the other items would be ok for me if that was my only choice and I couldn't bring something else. All in all the diet is far superior to what most people eat on a daily basis so if you are young and healthy and obviously going to be active I'd just enjoy the fact that you are going to do what is a "dream" job and don't let the other stuff ruin it for you.
