    Default What food to bring into the campsite?

    Last year was my first year camping. I survived on canned fruit, granola bars, and wheat thins. I'm curious what are some good food options for the campsites?
    Check out my video from Coachella 2009: http://vimeo.com/8813764

    Fruit works really well. Apples and oranges. Carrots. Granola bars. Crackers. Peanut butter and bread with plastic knives. Coachella was probably the healthiest I ate all last year. I started to feel great by Monday (aside from the drug exhaustion).

    Agreed. I find I carb loaded all morning at the camp until going in. Once I was in, I really only had time for a wrap and maybe a smoothie (depending on what else was flowing through my system)

    For the site I recommend not really salty foods, you sweat enough and are in the hot sun no need to induce even more dehydration. A cooler is key.

    I usually bring:
    Unsalted mini pretzels
    Packets of tuna (those 3 oz ones that are flavored work well)
    Bagels
    Baby Carrots
    Bananas
    Packaged deli meat, especially the ones in plastic containers w/ lids
    condiments
    jello pudding cups!!
    Box of cereal for snacking
    ....and goldfish. Salt be damned, I want my goldfish.

    salt = water retention, though. salty stuff is great for coachella, IMO.

    I'm a lo carber so basically it's water all morning. I eat once inside the fest. I have a piece of chicken on a stick with grilled veggies. Then lots of water. Around dinner time I have a smoothie. Then later in the evening a small snack.

    I pretty much stick to the chicken on a stick place now. After a few years of trying out different booths inside the fest, it's the only one that is consistent and truely low carb. The rest is vegiterian or too sugary or breaded.

    I was also a water loader until about noon. I also survived on Rice krispy treats and cheez-its but I'll probably be a little healthier this time around. On the way (my route at least), theres a great nut place called Hadleys with bomb trail mixes. They run a little high but they're damn good nuts so I'll probably stock up there.

    NO FOOD IN THE CAMPSITE. IT ATTRACTS BEARS.

    If I were you, I would be more concerned about any food sold on a stick than I would be about carbs.

    i don't think the people are mentioning the banana chips because they're so good, i think the oranges & bananas are for the rollers wanting Vitamin C & potassium...

    Banana bread is one of my all time fave foods for festival camping. Makes great french toast too.
