Jay, when my dad and I went camping for 4 days, We had to take two big coolers. ONE JUST FOR ME. because I was tryimg to follow paleo the whole time. I brought tons of lettuce, apples, oranges, meat, etc. I WISH I brought a bunch of walnuts and pecans, but I wasnt very educated at the time. It made the trip a little worse that I had to eat 6 times a day of only the most perfect food every time.
IMHO, this is the time of year to enjoy yourself a little. Heres what I would bring if I were you:
Pre-cooked chicken breasts(i mean cooking them all yourself and saran wrapping them)
lot of walnuts
lot of pecans (yummy)
carrots and/or other veggies
Damn! Why did'nt I do this??
p.s> At christmas dinner, eat LOTS of turkey! good replacement for dressing, rolls, etc.
You might fall asleep at the dinner table though ;)
