Organic Food Bars. All natural, 90% raw, and organic. I believe the average bar (there are different flavors) are around 4 blocks fat, 3 blocks carbs, and 2 blocks of protein. They are far and away my choice for a quick food grab.

If the true choice is between eating crap and waiting several hours to get good food, I say wait. This fear that has been created of hours-long undernutrition is misplaced energy.

Peter, you can tell because if the rice cakes are made from white rice, they would be white, if they used brown rice, they would be brown ;x

Most of the time they use white, i actually haven't seen any brown ones here.. although i don't buy them so i wouldnt know. The flavoured rice cakes will msot likely be using white rice.

Rice cakes of any colour would have a sky high GI, due to their processing, avoid like the plague!!

I don't like those "Zone Perfect" brand bars ... something about the texture + aftertaste.

Rice Cakes Have a GI of 86 (+/-4). That will get you an insulin spike and probably send you to sleep.

Rice cakes are a cruel joke played an all those inactive people that hope that by eating them they will loose that extra 30 or 40 lbs. ???

Bring nuts, fruit, Jerky. Get prepared.

I try (and often fail) to have food with me if I'm going to be out. I second the jerky/fruit/nuts model. Look for lower sodium jerky or make some of your own. Wait,wait! It's not really that hard. Here are some ideas. Though for speed and convenience a little extra salt once in a while isn't the end of the world.

I've got a bad sweet tooth so I give into a Clif Builders Bar now and then. About a 3 block snack but in my sane moments I know they're just expensive candy.

The original question; if I'm hungry enough I'll eat dirt if that's what's available and reZone at the next meal. Not a whole bag of dirt, just enough to keep from going crazy.

Guinness and jerky/fruit/nuts is still zone right? Seriously, I'm with Anthony, if a cookie kills you, you're just about dead anyway.

OK that's a big duuuh. What I meant was there is no real indication other than the obvious. Let's face it, now a days rice cakes come in various flavors and coatings that you can't tell what color anything is anymore. However, I can tell that nobody really likes rice cakes, but none the less I appreciate the info on it's nutritional value or lack there of.
Anyway, I am currently eating organic tortilla chips. Are those Ok?

Josh: I think that Anthony posed for the artist of my Avatar.
