Portable food

People are sometimes stumped when it comes to packing food for a day when you won't be at home, or near any shops. How do you manage to eat well, without refrigeration, a microwave etc?

This is what I'm taking to Phat Camp today - that's my 'lunchbox' in the background:

Morning snack. Yoghurt, berries and Protein Crunch/Granola mix (thanks Liz!):

Lunch. Chicken and mango salad, some bought coconut-lime dressing:

Afternoon snack. Blueberry protein pancakes:

And not forgetting the importance of fluids. That's 3 bottles of water, another 3 frozen (they keep the food cold) and 2 bottles of sports drink, just in case:

And just to make sure I have enough food, an emergency protein bar....and I'll throw in an apple as well :

I went through something ridiculous like 7 litres of water yesterday. Today's going to be cooler, but maybe I'd better add a few extra bottles....

That lot should keep me going. :o)

You're the queen of organisation! I walked out the door then thought I should grab some fruit but I only had a canteloupe and not enough time to cut it up.
