I think they only lived off the land when they were guarding or dug into an area.
I heard they would carry rice. But that requires cooking and a lot of water. Enough Calories for March at about 2000 calorie days if the assumption is 5' filipinos at about BMI21 and 115lbs would need about 8 cups of rice to make up 80% the energy. That could be ~3.5lbs of rice per soldier.
I was thinking filipinos must had a cakes or biscuits out of rice as a local hard tack.
