    I agree about using the BBQ or solar cookers to heat up things. . . I bring water to boil then cook pasta, rice, oatmeal in a thermos bottle - just add boiling water to the items in the thermos - close it and set it on it's side. . . cooks in 4-6 hours.

    Zuni traveling food - 1 tbsp. added to quart of water makes a nourishing and filling meal.

    If you absolutely have no way to heat things - then yes, peanut butter, cheese, canned tuna, granola bars, as already mentioned.

    There is always a way to heat food and boil water. You can buy a kerosenes stove or a propane camp stove for a very reasonable price, then just stock up on fuel.
    Do not leave yourself vulnerable to having no way to cook and boil water!

    I have a fondue set that I can heat some food or water in using a candle.

    You can go for grilling or canned foods. I always make sure that my kitchen cabinets are full of emergency food just incase. I live in a country which very prone to typhoons. Anyways, this are just one of the basic and simple food you can eat without using a heat or instant ready food.
