Tips & tricks for Playa cooking?

Hi everybody,

I'm putting together a class on Playa Cooking where I work, and while I have some experience in the field, I wanted to pick your brains for any tips you you have for putting a good meal together out there.

Some topics I plan to cover:

-Nutritional needs for the harsh environment and active lifestyle

-Setting up a proper kitchen space

-Getting the right equipment / improvising with what you have

-How to pack, prepare, and label your food before you head out

-What kinds of food survives well out there

-Dealing with trash and waste water

-Some recipes that are well suited for the desert

The class will likely be videotaped, in which case I'll put out a notice of the YouTube linkage.
