Last night, I blogged about all the meals I bought from vegan-friendly vendors at the 13th annual Bonnaroo Arts & Music Festival. But I didn't buy every meal in Centeroo, the main festival area. I ate several meals at my campsite, which was about a mile walk from the festival area.
Since we camp in the Guest Camping site (where media, marketing teams, and other guests of festival stay), we have an easy exit to get into the town of Manchester and buy food from Subway, Taco Bell, Shoney's, and Walmart. It's a small town and options are slim, but there are vegan dishes at most fast food places if you know what to order.
But this year, I think I only ate out once. I got a Subway Veggie Delite Sandwich with Avocado after we got our campsite set up on Thursday. The rest of my campsite meals consisted of snacks and portable meals that I packed with me. Every morning, I woke up and boiled water on my camp stove to make ramen! I know this little pot, with its flaking non-stick surface, has seen better days. But I just can't seem to part with it. It's perfect for the camp stove.
I buy these vegan instant ramen cups by Tradition in the kosher section at Kroger. The Tomato Flavor one is my fave, but I also packed Artificial Beef and Vegetable flavors. Nothing beat a breakfast of instant ramen.
I packed way more food than I actually ate. And I failed to photograph most of my snacks, but throughout the weekend, I munched on Kettle Maple Bacon Chips (yes, they're vegan!), Blue Diamond almonds (Smokehouse and Soy Sauce & Wasabi flavors), and Primal Strips. I also had my share of Wild Garden Sundried Tomato Hummus to-go packs on Whole Foods Ritz-style crackers and baby carrots from the Memphis Farmers Market.
One evening (Saturday maybe?) I plopped this whole bag of Tasty Bite Bombay Potatoes in a pot of boiling water and had this for dinner. Please ignore my weird expression, wrinkles, and lack of makeup. The important thing is this bag of delicious Indian-spiced taters.
I also packed an Annie Chun's Miso Soup bowl that just required hot water, but I never got around to eating that. And I had lots of Odwalla bars and to-go packs of Justin's Almond Butter that didn't get eaten. Better to pack too much food than not enough!
