For snacks I depend on the 100 calorie prepacked snacks.There are good choices on the fast food menus and most now give you a calorie account so you can at least estimate what your daily totall will be.

Nuts are good if you portion control. They're handy and they'll keep you full, but watch the fat content. Oatmeal packets microwave easily if that's an option. If your hotel room has a fridge and a microwave, you could always run to the local store and get a couple days good food to keep there. Oh, and those tuna and cracker lunch packs are to die for!

I personally love Tomato soup. 99 cent store has 2 for and they all have popped tops. You can heat at room then gazpacho it. Great on calories. Vegetarian chili is great too, not so good cold though. Celery is hearty and carrots don't need refridge. Jerky, apples, bananas, and sugarless gum for the actual work/presentations. Chicken dogs are good cold. Pizza without cheese can be 16 hours with out fridge in coolish environment.
Good luck.

Hello,
I'm gearing up for almost a month of convention weekends ahead. I will be away from home, crazy busy, eating out a lot and unable to pack my own food from a hotel room. If it were just a day or two, I'd pack a cooler as I've done in the past, but some of these shows are stretching over 4-5 days this year! My hotels all have pools or exercise rooms, so that's not so much an issue, but does anyone have any suggestions for non-perishables I can pick up to have with me at the show? One can not exist wholly on granola bars and I'm really not eating convention-hall garbage food.
