I'm really interested in going to the Run For Your Life 5k Obstacle Course which has an Apocalypse after party and camping. Unfortunately it says in more than one place that "No outside food, beverages, or alcohol will be permitted onto the grounds." This really sucks.
So do I just sneak my food in anyway or perhaps sit in my car and eat it cold? I have a sensitive tummy for reals and cheats always end up hurting me and everyone around me. The vendor food may be delicious food but most likely it will be full of stuff that will hurt me. I've sent them a query about it as well. What should I do?
Edit: If you think I should sneak food in, what are you suggestions for good sneakable Paleo foods?
Are you sure you can't even bring your own water? I personally wouldn't go anywhere where they don't allow you to bring your own water. The only motivation to ban it is greed and I don't think it speaks well to any organization that forces people to buy bottled water instead of just bringing their own. Have we not learned the lesson of Woodstock '99?
Didn't you ever sneak shooters in your pants to a concert? Anyway...here is a list of foods I recommend you sneak in...put them in cosmetic bar soap boxes and tampon boxes. They won't look inside there if they're searching bags. (Boy I sound crafty.)
Jerky or LARA and Tanka bars
Sardines will be too smelly
celery and almond butter
salami and cheese (use a few ice cubes in a plastic baggie)
I'm going to guess that there will be various barbequed meats you could eat. Probably not 100% paleo, but probably close enough. Supplement with some sneaked-in veggies, nuts, homemade paleo power bars, etc.
I was in à similar situation not so long ago, and proceeded to inform the organization that I am allergic to gluten and have a number of other food allergies ( what a coincidence they all coincide with Paleo). This got some annoyed looks, and I joked that I got my genes from scraping the barrel.
They allowed me to bring my own stuff. However, someone apparently protested about it. Because it didn't take long before a stranger walked up to me and asked me what afflictions I had. I told him I suffer from a human condition. He thought I was blowing him off, while I was just being honest.
