In the desert I carry a lot more salty food than in an alpine environment. This isn't just a matter of "what tastes good," but a matter of safety, to help the body retain water.
Also, in the desert I carry Thermotabs (I have chronic LOW blood pressure) to keep my salt levels sufficient.
Finally, even though you didn't ask: Wear that dorky, big-brimmed hat with the "sheik flaps" covering your ears and neck. You will stay cooler and avoid sunburn.
