How to Survive a Music Festival on Whole30

Well I survived. No booze. No food. Just water and a smoked turkey leg. 

Yesterday was busy. I prep and cooked food for several hours. I made mayonnaise from scratch, and then turned it into ranch dip. I made pesto. I cooked taco meat. I sautéed chicken breasts. It was crazy. 

I got an hour or so of uninterrupted pool time. And an awesome show at Riverfest. 

Let’s recap breakfast and lunch. 

Scrambled eggs with mushrooms, broccoli, onion and bell pepper. Coffee had coconut cream in it. Not the same as real cream, but a nice weekend treat. 

Lunch was tacos with ground chicken, Whole30 compliant salsa, tomatoes and avocado. The lettuce was out of the garden. 

Dinner was music and a turkey leg. 

Just smoked turkey to perfection. No spices. No sauces. It was the best we could do since my apple and mixed nuts got confiscated at the entrance. 

We had a solid evening of excellent music. Judah and the Lion. X-Ambassadors. The Goo Goo Dolls. It was epic. We even had the opportunity to meet X-Ambassadors and get our picture made. Very cool moment. 

So I’ll be spending the day creating an awesome 90s playlist since The Goo Goo Dolls show blew my mind. One of the best shows I’ve seen in a while. 

I was sad to see the graveyard of frozen lemonades and half-eaten corn dogs lining the sidewalks on our way out last night. Some people just don’t know a good thing when they have it. The boyfriend was upset we couldn’t drink all the free craft beer we wanted in the VIP tent. 

But on the upside, pants are fitting better. So day 5 wasn’t a total bust.
