Since you're not the Earl of Sandwich and won't need a free hand for gambling (or I would assume, since it's church picnic), I'd just pack the stuff I'd normally put on a sandwich (at least the stuff at Paleo) and eat it. Of course, I do a lot of that since I have to take toddler size bites,making a sandwich difficult even if I wanted the gluten!

There will be burger "fixins" like lettuce, tomato, onion, make a plate of that, add one or two burgers and have a nice salad,

Honeylissabee-
I wouldn't stress too much. The end of a Whole30 is a great time to start dealing with situations like that. I usually get a burger but take off the bun. Wrap it in some lettuce or just eat it plain. With that time frame I would probably just take some trail mix and a banana and have fun and wouldn't pack a whole meal. Usually there are lots of other things to do at Church picnics-maybe some sports or games? I agree with whoever said wrap things in lettuce. I have found that burgers are way better without the bun!

Most of all-have fun!

I'm considering trying some slow cooker stews throughout the Whole 30. Maybe I'll make something like that and put it in a thermos. Then, I'll use my EasyLunchbox container for fruit, veggies, and nuts (pistachios, hazelnuts, and almonds are my favorite)... maybe even almond butter "Ants on a Log". This picnic tends to be an all-day affair (from 12:30-1pm to close to 6). There will most likely be things like cupcakes, etc. served, so I figured having things I can graze on during the day will be helpful to avoid temptation.

Cook up some chicken or whatever meat you fancy, then freeze it. It should thaw by picnic time, but stay cool in the meantime.

You can't go wrong with a cooler or thermal lunchbox. For an easy, non-refrigerated lunch, I'll have a piece of fruit or veggies (apple, pear, cherries, celery, carrots, cucumber unsliced, tomato, etc), some almonds or almond butter, and a pouch of salmon (http://chickenofthesea.com/product_line_l
ist.aspx?FID=2) or a can of sardines. Even a hard-boiled egg which has been refrigerated can stay cool for a few hours if you keep it in a thermal lunchbox.

I can't vouch for the source of the salmon, but as a shelf-stable "fast food" it's a good alternative :)

You could have your sandwich on a piece of bib lettuce instead of on bread. I started doing this and I actually really enjoy it! It works for tacos too. I don't even miss the bread.

So, my annual church picnic is coming up on September 30. At this point, I will be nearing the end of my Whole 30.

The menu at the picnic will consist primarily of hotdogs and burgers. There MAY be some chips, potato salad, and whatever sweet treats people decide to bring. So, I figure it's best to just bring my own food.

I do have ice packs, and I am considering investing in a thermos. However, I won't have access to a refrigerator or microwave during the day. I'm packing my lunch the night before, and it'll be eaten after church on the day of the picnic.

I have both a salad container (with a dressing/dip cup) from Target and several Easy Lunchbox containers (my favorite). I'm just not sure what to do when my usual default (a sandwich) isn't exactly approved food.

Thanks!
