I’m really excited because today me, Scott and a bunch of friends are driving up to the Midlands (Donnington to be precise) for this years Download Festival. We’ll be there untill Monday but have no fear I have scheduled my Friday Challenge and Meat Free Monday so that you won’t miss anything 🙂
Although we go to Download Festival every year this will be the first time I will be there as a vegetarian. Last year I lived on Supernoodles and Bacon Butties but this year I have slightly more nutritious food packed, albeit still packet food which can be cooked on a hexi stove. I found that most packet noodle brands are actually not vegetarian, even if it’s a vegetarian flavour so I have ditched those and decided to pack ALOT of Ainsley Harriot’s Cous Cous varieties. Cous Cous is perfect for camping because all you need is some hot water and a lid for your mess tin then it’s done. I got a couple of each flavour.
I have also packed a big bag of mixed fruit and nuts, some baked edemame soy beans, some Soreen cake and some sweets! Oh and ALOT of beer haha wooo!
I’m absolutely buzzing to see my friends, all of the bands and also what sort of foods I can get on the stalls and hopefully I will be able to be slightly more adventurous than just chips and cheese toasties but we will see 🙂 Last year I did buy the most amazing veggie burger and also a chick pea salad but they were much more expensive than the meat options! tut tut!
Keep your fingers crossed that it won’t rain on me for 5 days straight!!! Anyone else coming along to Download Festival this year?? x
