Will Steger enjoys some good organic bread all the way from home, tons of butter and jam -- sitting in his tent on the North Pole!
Breakfast would typically consist of oatmeal or granola with milk, bread fried in butter with jam or cheese, a couple of fried breakfast sausages and hot chocolate, tea or instant coffee.
For lunch the team has nuts, dried fruit, granola bars, cheese, butter, sausage, instant soup or ramon noodles, chocolate and water or lemonade.
As soon as the team has set camp in the afternoon and are in their tents with the gas stove burning, the pot is on for tea or hot chocolate and a snack to warm up. Dinner is prepared on the stove as well and consists of rice or spaghetti with venison, caribou or pork. On top of this they also have vegetables and cheese. When you crawl into the sleeping bag you always make sure you have a couple of energy bars within reach, just in case you start getting chilled -- meaning your body needs more fuel!
Explorers need water for drinking and food preparation. The team spends 3 - 4 hours a day melting ice and snow into water used in tea, soups, powdered milk, hot Chocolate, coffee and lemonades. While they are traveling they use thermos bottles to keep the drinks warm and from freezing.
The dogs are also carefully managed. The team needs the dogs to be strong. Every day the dogs receive dry food supplemented with fat and meat, all adding up to around 6000 calories - if a "normal" dog ate this much, its stomach would most likely twist and it could possibly die. But the Polar Huskies are made for it!
