This coming week is a busy one.
On Wednesday afternoon I leave for a robotics competition in La Crosse, Wisconsin. On one hand, I’m super excited to be able to finally go to a competition and do my job as the media person (I decided not to go to the last competition because I’d had the flu). But on the other, high school students like to get pizza and soda and a bunch of crap that I really don’t want to have to survive on for four whole days.
I knew I’d be packing a lot of my own snacks, but I decided that lots of people probably also run into this. Eating healthy on the road or during a competition or convention is really, really hard, and it isn’t helped by the nearest restaurants being Subway and Pizza Hut. I think at least one night we’ll be going for sushi, but that still means I have to be prepared for breakfasts, three lunches and two dinners. Oh, and did I mention I can’t really bring anything perishable?
But enough of my complaining: here are the snacks!
I’ll also end up bringing some fruit and maybe a cucumber or something, but most of my nutrition will be coming from protein bars and granola this week. I’ll definitely be doing insta stories and posts while I’m in Wisconsin, so follow me @sugarandsitups if you want to see what I’m doing on a daily basis when I don’t have access to a kitchen!
