You can do the trail in parts, or in one continuous walk. Both count as "doing the trail."
For one continuous walk, you send food ahead.
There are places where you must walk for a week or slightly longer without getting more supplies. There are places where you can purchase fresh food every few days.
Sure there are books about walking the trail, and guides to doing so. When you have all your info gathered, you'll see that you'll be able to get a fair quantity of fresh food, and supplement with a staple of dried foods. You can also grow some sprouts while you hike, so you always have fresh greens too. But lettuce, cucumber, celery, and a few other veggies travel pretty well too, and lettuce isn't very heavy in a pack.
Between dates and fresh fruit during the day, lettuce and nuts for your last meal of the day, you'll do just fine. Also a great many fruits can be freeze dried these days, and are readily available, to round out your desire for variety and light weight.
