    Cool Food Packing for SJ4 (Also, Ask Teru Anything Thread)

    The most important things we all need to remember when it comes to conventionating, is that we must all stay hydrated, fed, rested, and clean! So, I thought it'd be nice to dedicate a thread to proper fooding for a convention, namely, this one. We're very lucky to have our convention located on the Riverwalk and no more than two minutes away from the lovely food court of the Rivercenter Mall, for that matter. However, not all of us can live on "ONE MEAT ONE SIDE, THREE NINETY-NINE" (if anyone heard that guy last year, hahaha) for three days nor can some of us afford it.

    In that case, a cooler is your best friend! So let's talk. What are you thinking about packing for your snacking? Also, feel free to ask me anything

    Already got a good list started there, alycan! It's especially important that you bring water. Sodas are delicious and all, but they don't hydrate you. I like to bring Powerade and water and keep them handy, saving sodas for when I get a chance to sit down and have a meal.

    Fruits are also a great thing to bring, though, if I might suggest it- dried fruits and trail mix pack the same nutrient power as their fully-hydrated brethren, without the need to take up space in a cooler. That also means no need to worry if you run out to the cosplay show and forget your mix on the bathroom counter. No spoilage!

    We have an 8 hour drive each year. We usually keep a cooler in our hotel room as well as backup snacks. Then we load someone's backpack with snacks and drinks for the day. It's cheaper on us and we dont have to constantly spend money on vending machines and such for food.

    If I get a cooler......LUNCHABLES GALORE! Well at least for the first day. Then I'll just have little finger food snack stuff like granola bars, crackers, sugary nonsense, PLENTY of water (my god) and Crystal Light packets. Not too much stuff though cause we'll just probably eat a lot at Dennys and the mall food court for meals.

    We're bringing peanut butter and jelly so we can make sandwiches, some easy cheese and ramen. As for drinks were bringing soda and water. Oh! And lets not forget the yummy fruits!

    3 days till the con finally starts. I recommend LOTS of water at least 4-5 bottles a day. and yeah i agree trail mix and dried fruits are good the the fully hydrated ones do provide a bit of liquid so if your not gonna keep yourself hydrated or if your gonna drink alot of soda then go for hydration some way or another. speaking of which, it's expected to be between 95-105 degrees during the con. Veggies and Jerky are both affordable Veggies more so then jerky. Dark leafy veggies and things with vitamin C are both good sources of iron and protein. OH! and not so much pocky and ramune as meal substitutes. they will just leave you tired.
    so is this good Taru?
