No GORP for me.

Can you suggest unprocessed or minimally processed foods for hiking day trips (approx. 12 hours) and three-day backpacking trips? The catch: no refined carbohydrates.

Hiking season for me starts tomorrow, and I'll need to feed myself. The catch: I've been successfuly losing weight by watching my refined carbs and sugar intake, and would rather forgo on my usual selection of fluffernutters, fresh and dried food, and Pocky sticks.
I know that once the weather is nice enough to backpack, the ability to cook will open up a whole lot more options, and I would like to know how to expand my typical menu of canned sardines and ramen cups.
I am well aware of adequate caloric needs - it just seems a lot harder to meet those goals exclusively with minimally processed, non-sugary foods.
I don't enjoy trail mix or energy bars, but I'm open to all suggestions!
