What do you take to horse shows/events to help you stay away from the junk food?
Here are some of my favorites:
turkey and cheese rollups. Split a string cheese stick in half, and roll each half up in a slice of turkey. I like the Honey Roasted and Smoked pre-sliced packages at Costco, and Precious mozzarella string cheese. (200 calories)
Yogurt and Cheerios. I was never a fan of cereal-and-milk, and found that I like this much better! Plus, yogurt is easier to pack in the cooler. Yoplait light yogurt + regular Cheerios (200 calories)
Whole wheat bagel and peanut butter. Make these up before you go and slice in half. 1/2 Thomas' whole wheat bagel + 1 Tablespoon of Jif peanut butter (215 calories)
Clif bars range from 240-280 calories. I find that eating one of these along with a bottle of water is very filling. I also like Luna bars, but find they're less filling (and I eat the S'Mores bars like candy if I have them around!)
Fiber One bars (very filling for a small thing, 150 cals)
Dannon Lite n Fit yogurt cups for a sweet taste (80 cal)
Peanuts or cashews in one ounce serving bags sold by the box in Sam's Club
I also make tuna on wheat so I have carbs and protein, or else PB&J on wheat.
Bananas! I love bananas at horse shows, it keeps me going when I have to be there at 5 to school and braid, and apples.
Quaker Oat Chewy Granola Bars at 90 calories - a nice little boost of carbs. I always bring Gatorade in the summers. I am also a huge fan of the Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds - almonds dusted in dark chocolate. They come in convenient 100cal packs, and are almost guaranteed to keep me away from the donuts and muffins when I need sugar. Quaker also makes mini rice cakes in a variety of flavors, and my horse loves the apple cinnamon and honey graham kinds.
