Use Like 1/4 of it with a few tablespoons of powdered milk, (lowfat kind not nonfat) few tablespoons or so of brown sugar, and for flavoring some cinnamin or, something like apple or pumpkin pie spice blend, some nuts and dried fruit.
Put it all in a ziplock before goin out. When your ready to eat it dump in your bowl or insulated cup add water to make it a consistancy of your liking ( like 1/3 to 1/2)
Sit for about 5 minutes and eat.

I'm a young climber but when it comes to food I lean towards taste as well as sustenance. I personally get a little grumpy if all I have is gorp and energy bars.
I've found that Trader Joes has some pretty delicious pre-made meals that just need to be boiled for a few minutes. Their indian food is particularly good. Another good resource is a book called "Lip Smackin Vegetarian Backpackin". They have a non-veg version too. Almost everything in there is easy, quick and satisfying.
